Testimonials

"Emily is not only a phenomenal human being, she's a skilled professional who achieves results in every area she applies herself. Emily is a great speaker, an engaging teacher, a compassionate director with a gift of developing relationships. Her safe home for girls became a blueprint for success across the nation at a time when success was rare. She will be an asset to any endeavor requiring dedication, perseverance and heart." 

Elizabeth Scaife, Director Training of Shared Hope International

"I have loved my time being coached by Flagship! Emily and Taylor are not only co-laborers in Kingdom work, but I now consider them great friends! They both listened to my desires and goals, and they joined right in where I needed their expertise the most. They are both down to earth, super relatable, and available. They exceeded my expectations for what a consulting relationship could be! I highly recommend you give them an opportunity to take your fundraising efforts to the next level.  During our 4-month program we raised an additional $40,000 and have proposals being considered for $50,000+!"

Sara Beth Fentress, 127 Worldwide

"As 2019 has unfolded, I have become keenly aware of the Holy Spirit's interactions and one example is Emily Fitchpatrick. At Narrow Gate, we engaged with Flagship to make sure our ministry messaging matched our Vision, Mission, and Strategy. At first I thought this would be an okay exercise, but the Holy Spirit wanted me to have total clarity about the unique ministry God has given us. To date, we believe it is the best messaging on the Why, the How, and the What of Narrow Gate!" 

Bill Lohnes, Founder Narrow Gate

"Flagship Fundraising Academy has been a gift from God in every sense. As a small organization, we needed a lot of help and training in all areas of fundraising and marketing and FFA has provided that abundantly. With so many tools, resources and especially “wise guides” we are changing the way we do things and becoming the organization that God is calling us to be. I highly recommend this course to every Christian non-profit no matter what size, God is truly working through Flagship!"

Ellen Arvayo, Board Member, Emmaus Journey

"If you are just starting out as a fundraiser, or have been doing it for years, Flagship Fundraising Academy provides the necessary training to succeed in your role." 

Aaron Friesen, Partnership Development Coach, Regina Youth For Christ

"When I think of Emily Fitchpatrick I think of someone who has gone over and above in absolutely every single aspect of her coaching services. She taught me so much that I don't even know how I ran a ministry before learning it and she never once made me feel silly for not already knowing it. Emily started out as my online coach and ended up a dear friend, even a fundamental pillar in my work as an Executive Director. I would HIGHLY recommend her for anything and everything pertaining to a nonprofit and more. Whatever your challenge, whatever your inquiry, she knows. Believe me, she knows!"

Tara Germain, Founder, Light and Salt Ministries Nicaragua 

"Emily is an incredible leader in helping you walk out your calling in nonprofit ministry. You're in this incredible role in ministry and flagship is that next step of moving from where you are to where you want to be. In an ever-changing culture always strive to be a learner in all you do in nonprofit. You've never arrived you can become better, and flagship has been that constant for us to navigate as we learn to love and lead."

Valerie Millsapps, ED, Pregnancy Resource Center, TN

"It has been my privilege to know and interact with Emily Fitchpatrick for almost 10 years. Her tenacious yet humble character combined with her energy and passion made her a leader in the emerging field of non-profit management for restoration programs for victims of human trafficking. Emily's vision, entrepreneurial, communication and people skills combine to make her standout in non-profit leadership and sustainability."

Dr. Rebecca Johnson, Psychologist-Trainer Human Trafficking Aftercare

"Contracting with Emily Fitchpatrick has been a great investment for not only my professional development but for the entire organization's long-term success.  Each session of coaching has exceeded my expectations.  Emily encourages "outside the box" thinking and combines that with proven methods to grow and sustain a non-profit.  I appreciate her authenticity and transparency.  Her real world experience in managing and growing a successful non-profit makes the coaching time more valuable as she shares lessons learned along her journey.  She listens to our needs and asks the right questions to bring out the answers that best serves our mission.  Emily's coaching method teaches us how to problem solve and come up with strategic solutions way beyond our scheduled time together. I recommend Emily Fitchpatrick and Flagship Equip to leaders of all experience levels." 

Stephanie Holt, Founder, Mission 21

She is a go-getter, bubbling with creativity and excelling in the knowledge of nonprofit development, fundraising and strategic planning. Moreover her passion for addressing injustices such as human trafficking is visible by her everyday excellence to champion the task at hand. She has gone above and beyond raising over the annual budget needs and leading in our organization’s strategic development."

Anna Smith, Co-Founder, Restore One

"Flagship's Fundraising Academy was so helpful to our staff and volunteer leaders who participated in many ways! We learned how to approach fundraising as a ministry to our donors who are the heroes of our outreach to children. The tools they offer to be more organized and thoughtful about fundraising were a tremendous help! I especially appreciate that Flagship is faith-based and shares our ministry's worldview. I highly recommend Flagship Equip as an excellent resource and "coach" in the area of fundraising for your nonprofit." 

Janet Johnson, Regional Director, Child Evangelism Fellowship of West Texas 

"Emily is a particularly knowledgeable fundraising expert and an absolute delight to work with! She is able to leverage her depth and breadth of experience and knowledge by breaking down concepts into manageable bites or action items. Based on what she has taught me, I have been able to educate our leadership and management teams. We are so excited to implement best practices in 2020 and have no doubt this will be the most fruitful approach for our 45 year old organization. I am so grateful for her coaching and recommend her with tremendous enthusiasm!"
