Fund Raising/Donor Gifts

Totally INSPIRED Media specializes in creating "video asks" for support. We like to think of fund raising as "friend-raising". No one ever gives an invisible organization or cause. Our videos help organizations bond with their constituents, students, educators, the public and even kids, who influence their parents.

Todd Gessele has helped non-profits raise more than 10 million dollars by writing traditional grants and producing video grants for social media campaigns!  Todd enjoys working with major donors and can find creative ways to invite people to support to your organization and vision.
