Eric Billman engages your audience or group with stories, examples and practical advice on philanthropy topics.
Over the course of his 25 plus year career in fundraising and philanthropy, career, Eric has helped donors and volunteers around the world to experience the joy of giving.
Think back to a time when someone unexpectedly gave you something you especially needed or wanted. How did you feel? It is a great feeling, right?
Now think about how you feel when you are the person who does the giving – feeling great for a brief moment becomes a lingering joy.
Now imagine, what if feels like when you give in a way that not only changes lives, but also changes the world, even if it is in a very small way.
We value the deep relationships and partnerships between institutional leaders and donors that Donor Bliss makes possible.
We are passionate about helping philanthropy organizations raise more resources through enhanced volunteer engagement and bliss for donors.
We believe a good strategic plan is the most powerful way to help leaders integrate a Culture of Philanthropy while realizing the organization’s mission.
Imagine the impact created by your institution as your donors increasingly experience the joy of giving. Over time, fulfillment and meaning are added to this joy, creating Donor Bliss.
When your institution embraces Donor Bliss as a priority, resources increase, key constituents are more deeply engaged, and the institutional mission produces greater impact.
The One Page Business Plan for Non Profits was created to help non-profit executives define and communicate their organization’s mission, vision and plan clearly and concisely.
Collaborate with your board leaders, share the plan with your team, and move your non-profit to the next level of success.

Endorsements for The Art and Science of Donor Bliss
The Art and Science of Donor Bliss surprised me with the number of ways the Donor Bliss state of being can be pursued. This book makes a contribution to those who earnestly want and hope for more from their giving and to those who want to help donors as they make their way.

I think the value [the Billmans] bring to the conversation is the idea that giving to others can elevate the human experience in ways that simply cannot be achieved through any other activity. It is a huge idea that goes far beyond being a “donor.”

[The Art and Science of] Donor Bliss is a joy to read and provides a very thoughtful approach to building your own roadmap to becoming a philanthropist.

I enjoyed reading your book and hope others will, too, as we all need reminders of why philanthropy is rewarding, fun, and blissful.

A really lovely book… and I don’t think I have experienced one that focuses so much on both the positive AND the practical. I like how [the Billmans] offer both perspectives for a potential donor to understand the opportunities and the challenges. I like the use of many examples and I particularly appreciate both the aspirational tone and the practical advice.
