Are the programs free or is there
a donation required?
It is key for you to understand that
our programs have a completely free
registration. We offer programs that
would cost hundreds of dollars (or
more) from others at no registration
We do ask our
members to consider making a voluntary
donation. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit
organization and we do rely on member
donations to make these programs available
and to expand our offerring. In addition,
we are a "grassroots" organization
with very humble beginnings. Help
at this time in our foundation is
are encouraged, they are not required
to participate in our programs.
are some answers to some important
is the goal of the FAMEE Foundation?
Our goal is to provide free resources,
training programs, and guidance to
entrepreneurs and their consultants
to grow profitable, sustainable, long-term
customer revenue steams - the lifeblood
of every company!
We offer valuable programs that would
cost hundreds of dollars (or more)
in many other settings. Donations
are voluntary, however, and not required
to participate in our learning programs.
our programs free?
We believe so deeply in our mission
to help small businesses and the economic
development of their communities that
it is not an option to make programs
inaccessible through high pricing.
Who are we?
We are a grassroots, 501(c)3 Non-Profit
organization born from the passion
of a former SBDC consultant/Center
Director based on his recognition
that entrepreneurs have a very real
need for high quality marketing training
at little or not cost.
What is your donation used for?
We run our start-up foundation on
a shoestring budget utilizing the
invaluable help of volunteers and
low-cost internet technology but,
we're always creating new marketing
education programs while looking for
ways to reach our goals of helping
entrepreneurs grow positive, profitable,
and growing revenue streams.
really need this help?
We wish we could tell you that we
do not. The reality is that we very
much need member support to offer
these programs and move the foundation
forward. We do very much need the
help of every member.
Why should you consider donating?
Consider the value you have already
received from just visiting our website,
getting our newsletters, or taking
one of our many e-courses. If you've
noticed, you should be getting a LOT
of lifetime learning about marketing
and increasing the revenue in your
/ your clients' businesses.
Donating is "tipping" us
for the good services you've received.
Donating is saying "Thank You"
for all you have learned (for free)
Donating is "paying it forward"
- helping when others are struggling
more than you and truly can't donate
yet require the support and knowledge

Foundation programs from which you
if I cant make a donation?
First of all, we accept donations
as small as $5. Next, if you cannot
make a donation, we still hope you
will take our courses. We have to
ask for donations, but would never
want anyone to NOT participate just
becuase they cannot donate. (In a
way, this is a little bit like church!)
Also, consider volunteering. See below.
