"In times of drastic change...

it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned find themselves only equipped to live in a world that no longer exists." -Eric Hoffer

What's our track record? 
Read what past attendees have said below.

"I landed a better job with a foundation at a 42% pay increase! They asked for a minimum salary requirements and current salary. Because my current salary was under market I let them know the number was a combination of salary and benefits. I used the language from the Fundraising Career Conference and named my minimum amount. I was able to increase my salary by 42% when I received the offer!

I am happy to say I'm now working for a  Foundation at a major Hospital. I'm in my first month on the job and it's going well!"

-Natalie Ramos, Chicago, IL

“I normally don't send emails like this, but I wanted to let you know that the resources from the Fundraising Career Conference work!

I used your cover letter template to apply for a job, and less than 24 hours after submitting, I was contacted by a recruiter.  He told me,

"You don't technically have the experience, and this is a stretch position, but your cover letter was amazing and it read like a perfect fit for this job, so I am forwarding you up to the hiring manager.


"I attended your Virtual Fundraising Career Conference in 2015 and utilized what I had learned to apply, interview and negotiate my salary for my new role as Special Events Coordinator!

Thanks for everything, this conference is a valued resource to fundraisers everywhere!”

 -Anna G.

A followup survey was sent to past attendees, and here are the results:

8% of survey respondents got new jobs.

17% created better boundaries at work.

From 2020-2022-Our Story

It's been a hell of a 24 months and here we are rolling into junior year of COVID. I don't know about you but I'm really ready for more support with our work. Do you feel that way too?

If so, we are not alone. We see it in the 550 strikes at the end of 2021. We see it with the 1.7 Million people in the anti-work reddit. We see it in how student loan relief, rent relief and unemployment are no longer coming. We see it in the staggering numbers of people getting COVID and dying. It's not that nobody wants to work. It's that working isn't working for anyone.

 That's why I'd like you to join me in the Nonprofit Career Conference. What will you get out of it?

  • You'll learn to ask for more at work
  • See alternative power structures, whether unions, co-ops or other models to get fair pay
  • Stem the tide of people leaving
  • Hold systems accountable with anti-racism work
  • And gain community with other people who want the same things
And this is just the beginning! I hope you can join us! Recordings will be available if you can't do every session. And if you need a scholarship, just write us at and tell us about your situation.

See you there!

Students say:

"Your advice has helped me get two job offers and negotiate a raise! You also helped me write excellent cover letters and resumes and ask the right questions during interviews.  I decided the first offer wasn’t the best fit and turned it down, but am very excited to start my new job soon.  Thanks so much!”

-Stephanie, UK 

"I’ve looked for a job for months, and was getting rejected over and over again. I was beginning to lose hope. Your sample cover letters helped me figure out how to succinctly tell a gripping story that breaks the conventional mold of a cover letter. I used that advice when applying for a position for the Spokane County Library District to tell the story about the Library of Water in Iceland. It worked because I got an interview the next day, which I rocked, and the day after that, which was yesterday, I found out that I got the job."

 -Nathaniel Youmans, Spokane, Washington

"Mazarine's career advice is for you….from the absolute beginner to the seasoned professional.

Delivered in the frank, dynamic and empowering way which we’ve come to expect from Mazarine. She will get you to take a good hard look at where you are, where you want to go and what you absolutely must do to if you want to find a job you’ll love where you are appreciated and adequately compensated. You’ll be presented with strategies for beginning and sustaining satisfaction and success in a new job. If you want to learn how to do what is needed to get the job and how to be happy once you are there, then join us!
 Mazarine Treyz is invested in the long-term happiness of each fundraiser and elevating the fundraising industry."  -Judi De Souter, NYC
Students say:
"I have used your invaluable information over and over again. It has been hugely helpful in pushing my candidacy for several jobs I never thought I could get near. Thank you!!!

I’m very far along in the interview process for a Development Director position for a performing arts venue at a very well regarded university. Thanks for everything!!!!! Your advice has been a godsend!"


Because of your fundraising career advice, this year, I’ve moved from a behind-the-scenes admin assistant in a planned giving office at a private college, to a front-line mid-level fundraiser at a small non-profit, focused on strengthening local farms in our region. Thank you for your work – it certainly played a role in me believing I could get here.

-Lisabeth J. Development Coordinator, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) Massachusetts

Students Say:
“I want you to know, I used what you taught me to go to my Executive Director and change my career inside our organization and restore work/life balance to the crazy Jenna Cosmos, and I am forever in your debt for that!”

Jenna Smith Communications Coordinator, Virginia
