Ignite Your Donor Passion is written for organizations that are starting out, who have stalled out, or desire to be more impactful.
Ignite Your Donor Passion talks about the 13 ingredients that make communication more powerful. It covers trumpeting the value proposition, ways to cause less friction when making “the ask”, segmenting the audiences to be more effective, and boosting donor generosity.
Ignite Your Donor Passion covers creating AMAZING websites, blogs, email messages, newsletters, appeal letters, brochures, face-2-face meetings, and presentations. Each chapter outlines the anatomy of each of these communication methods, how to design a solid strategy, measure success and be willing NOT settle for “Good Enough.” Each section ends with an evaluation portion, and a list of pros and cons.

Coaching Christian Ministries and Non-profits to Succeed
"Let's go up and take the land—now. We can do it."
Project:Caleb was founded in 2015 to do just that…help charitable non-profits “take the land” whether it’s ministering to an impoverished village in Africa, caring for orphaned children in an inner city, or making disciples in eastern Europe.
Project:Caleb exists to help Christian ministries be more effective, efficient, and sustainable in “taking the land” which God has called one to conquer.
After 30 years, John left his successful consulting company in 2014 to start ProjectCaleb, dedicating his time specializing in the creation of materials and virtual learning experiences in four areas: Administration & Management, Branding & Marketing, Communication & Engagement, and Fundraising & Donor Development. John has served on boards for more than a dozen years. He enjoyed serving in leadership roles when launching a crisis pregnancy center, thrift shop, and Christian school. Mr. Leavy is a best-selling author. Ignite Your Donor Passion is his 15th book. Leavy has helped dozens of ministries large and small be more effective.

The workshop was excellent. I liked both the screen/powerpoint and the hand-outs to follow along. The setting had the type of community/intimacy I enjoy! Most important was you depth of knowledge in this field. Hard to believe there are so many angles and instructions to observe to get good support.– John Messer, Purposeful Destiny
Project Caleb is aptly named - after the robust encourager, man of faith, with the "can do" spirit. John has patiently helped me sequence the steps to bring Rise & Shine International into its next level of growth. I look forward to John and his team being there to help - that's major comfort!– Mary Chico, Rise & Shine International
John is very insightful and honest. He's given my wife and I really great advice and got us moving in the right direction.– William Weber, Soaring Crow Ministries
Thank you Mr. Leavy for your stabilizing advice.– Diane Marshall, Christian Heritage Academy of Midwifery
John is a caring listener always ready to respond to the needs of our project managers. I highly recommend John for his character and persistence to make a difference in the lives of others.– Greg Smith, Dir. of Operations, New Horizons Foundation
One of John’s key recommendations to us, as a board, is for us to take a close look at the problem issues that we have encountered so far with our mission, document those issues and then work toward prioritizing those we wish to address. This should give us focus and help direct our problem solving efforts.– Gregg Heid, AIC Tumaini Youth Center
It is my opinion Project:Caleb and Mr. Leavy give us the ability to improve motivations and the future direction of our project and will help us achieve all of our goals. You have my full vote of confidence.– Tyke Pierce, AIC Tumaini Youth Center
We wanted to get laser focused on what God has for us this year and John Leavy has been a great help in considering each effort and building better connections with our supporters. Thanks John.– Stan Goodman, Finished Work Intl. Ministries
John Leavy has opened our eyes to see the wonderful possibilities of creating a website and social media that will be on target to inform others about who we are, what we doing, and to call them to action.– Lenard J De Zeeuw, Whispering Eagle Ministries
