The nonprofit small shop community for you!

You work for a small nonprofit. You wear a dozen hats. It’s a lot.

You have questions but no one to ask them to. Or you want to speak with a consultant/agency but your budget isn’t big enough.

You feel the pressure of more people needing your services but fewer people are donating. You want to go from scarcity to growth, survival to thrival. But it’s hard and you’re not always sure of the best ways to accomplish that.

Want to solve your fundraising and marketing problems and turn pain points into opportunities?

Join the Small Shop Success WhatsApp community!

Managed by me, Ephraim Gopin. I’m a nonprofit fundraising and marketing expert who worked in small shops for almost two decades. This group will provide you with:

✅ An on-call nonprofit expert
✅ Answers to your organizational headaches, fundraising and marketing questions
✅ A community of small shop, like-minded nonprofiteers

Starting July 2, every Monday thru Thursday, 11am-3pm EST (8am-12pm PST), I am available to answer all your fundraising and marketing related questions. You’ll learn best practices, get tips and expert advice while connecting to a community of small shop staff dealing with similar issues to yours. (Pricing info is below)

Ask away- during your workday!– about fundraising, email, retention, direct mail, content, monthly giving, data, grants, social media and any topic under the fundraising and marketing heading. I will do my best to answer right away.

Spend as few or as many hours as you want participating in the discussion. There’s no obligation to be present every day.

This exclusive group is open only to full time employees of small shops- annual revenue less than $3 million. (Please see FAQ to learn more about the Small Shop Success community and whether your organization qualifies to join.) 

Once you fill in the form, I will quickly vet your organization. I will then send you group guidelines which you must agree to followed by payment information.

My friend, you’re not alone! You have a nonprofit expert and community of small shop nonprofiteers to turn to for ideas and help. Join the Small Shop Success WhatsApp group today!  


The Small Shop Success WhatsApp group was so much fun to be a part of because it gave me a community of fundraisers to work with, when usually I’m a team on one. It was great having a place to turn to with my questions both big and small. I walked away from this group with new ideas – some of which I’ve already been able to implement!

Head of Development, Live It Learn It

As a smaller charity in a rural community there are huge pressures on our organization to achieve more, do more and help more. In this challenging economy fundraising is more important than ever, but also more difficult than ever.

Being connected to other small charities and participating in the Small Shop Success chat with other fundraisers fostered a sense of belonging to a community of like-minded professionals. The shared knowledge, comradery and connectedness was a boost. The various fundraisers shared insights, strategies and success stories with each other. This exchange of knowledge helped me improve my own fundraising efforts by learning from the experiences of others.

Being part of a chat with fellow fundraisers also provided emotional support and encouragement during these tough times. Sharing struggles and triumphs with others who understand the work was a boost to morale and motivation.

Ephraim’s knowledge, advice and his ability to walk you through a challenge provided hope, ideas and confidence to move ideas forward. Whether seeking advice on a particular fundraising strategy or sharing urgent updates about ongoing campaigns, the convenience and access to Ephraim and other ‘brains’ through the Small Shop Success chat was invaluable. If we were stuck on a thought in a meeting, I’d often say “let me ask the Think Tank”, which is how I referred to the group.
