Larry C Johnson, Founder of The Eight Principles shares with you his entire Eight Principles framework, developed over three decades of successful fundraising and organizational leadership experience.

He’s not a coach.  He’s not someone who spent just a few years as a fundraiser and then built an online course.

Larry’s been in philanthropy for 30 years, starting with Ketchum—at the time the world’s leading fundraising consultancy.  Over the next twenty years, he was blessed to partner with amazing philanthropists, board members, fundraisers and organizational leaders at places like SUNY, Niagara University, Houghton College and Kettering University.

During that period, using The Eight Principles, he led teams which raised over $500,000,000 and created long-term philanthropic cultures which have allowed those organizations—and many others to—to continue raising record sums.

And this is what he wants to pass on to YOU.
