About Us

Our Story…

GM&F Partners was founded in 2012 by George Glover after a sustained career as the founder and CEO of Teen Challenge Canada, transforming a single local site to a national multi-site organization for faith-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation. George’s leadership produced millions of dollars in donations through novel and traditional fundraising methods—including gifts of real estate.

George brings a wide range of experience, innovative leadership, a significant network of partners, and a heart for the challenges that leaders of small non-profits face.

“Most small non-profits have small teams doing their best with limited resources and each member performing multiple roles. The result isn’t sustainable long-term. Our team provides expertise across multiple professions so that non-profit leaders can focus on executing their charitable vision for others.”

Three Questions for George Glover

Q1. What are the important considerations for any small or mid-size nonprofit in today’s competitive fundraising world?

There are many, but strategy is key. Most smaller nonprofits have limited capacity in their fund development offices — and for some, one person is doing it all. That’s why you need 3 very important components to get the job done:

  1. Well thought out fundraising strategy.
  2. A commitment on your part to continually work on execution of the plan.
  3. A company that has a proven track record raising funds to help you reach the goal line.

The result? You can win with Major donors, Mass and Monthly donors — even in times of economic downturn.

Q2. What are the trends you are seeing in fundraising, post-pandemic right now?

With the economy uncertain, mid level donors are giving less than in previous years. That’s why major donor cultivation and monthly recurring donors will continue to be a key part of any fundraising plan — along with special events as well. Another trend we are seeing is that nonprofit workers are burning out faster than before. That’s why a well thought out strategy and tactics are so very important to move the needle. A good annual growth target should be (at minimum) 20% year over year revenue growth. Put a plan in place to manage your donors well as ‘partners’. They will do more for you even in times of economic uncertainty. 

Q3. What benefit is there in outsourcing marketing and fundraising?

We often get asked this question. The benefit of retaining a company like GM&F is that you have access to a very skilled and robust team of experts — without having to hire a big staff team. Functionally, when you hire us, you hire a fundraising department that helps build you a tailor-made plan for your nonprofit. We’re not a ‘coaching organization’ …we DRIVE the process, figure out the low-hanging fruit and get the job done. Getting strong results is what matters and should matter to you as well.  Outsourcing is the trend and there is proven ROI to make the case.

  • Martin Vanderlaan
    “GM&F Partners was instrumental in seeing us through the early days of our development. Collaborating with us, they brought clarity and direction to our organization. Their knowledge, experience, and connections within the non-profit world were important pieces to helping us build a firm foundation for the future. Thank you, GM&F!”

  • Pat Wiedemer
    “The GM&F Partners team brought about a quantum leap in our ability to reach our members and donors and, above all, get the message of LIFE out to our province. We were losing ground with aging donors and supporters, ineffective engagement methods, and poor internal and Board structure. All these good changes would not have been possible without GM&F’s help. We are most grateful and eminently satisfied with the great expertise provided.”
