In order to grow your community and increase fundraising, you've got to energize your supporters, empower them to share their most personal stories, and help them overcome their fear of “The Ask.” 

You could also offer free donuts, but then you’d have to decide between old fashioned with or without sprinkles. That’s just way too controversial.

Through his own hero’s journey from standup comedian to marketing madman, auGi will show you fresh ways to supercharge your supporters, re-humanize your mission, and clobber your inner chicken.

Light Up Your Conferences and Events

auGi’s #BringLuvity keynote not only reminds us that humans are the heartbeat of causes, movements, and ideas, but also illustrates how Love+Levity equated to double-digit revenue growth for one of the world’s leading nonprofits. Every association and business conference could use a bolt of AUGTRICITY!
