Our Approach

MI AZ makes giving easy and effective! We take the guesswork out of giving and help you strategically invest in the causes you’re most passionate about. Through our relationships with non-profits around the country, in-depth data analysis, and giving feedback, we’ll help take your giving efforts to a level you never knew was possible! 

At MI AZ, we believe that Relationships + Research + Reporting = Maximum Giving Results!

Whether you’re launching a non-profit or you’ve been up and running for years, MI AZ will help you become healthy, strong and sustainable. We offer a combination of workshops and webinars, as well as customized coaching, to train non-profits on a wide range of organizational issues. As your non-profit grows, you may receive an invitation to apply for matching cash grants. 

At MI AZ, we believe that Training + Coaching + Granting = Maximum Impact!

For Givers

In 2009, a study conducted by the Baylor University Institute of Religion revealed the following: 

• “The more intensively organizations are involved with Mission Increase (MI), the more likely they were to have increased their revenue… groups that reported they had implemented “many” ideas learned through MI training showed strong performance… 84% increased their revenue; 80% acquired new donors; 58% diversified their revenue streams; and 61% increased their number of major donors.” (6, 21)

• By contrast… “22 organizations indicated that they had not implemented any of the strategies they had heard about in MI’s training…among this group, 91% indicated that they had not increased their income post-involvement with MIF.” (21)
