About Us

Benevon was founded in 1996 by Terry Axelrod, a professional fundraiser and social worker who committed herself to teaching others her proven, successful model for fundraising. She designed the Benevon Model for Sustainable Funding after working for more than twenty-five years in the nonprofit sector.

Since then, more than 5,000 teams from organizations of all types and sizes have demonstrated that the Benevon Model for non profit fundraising can provide an effective pathway to financial sustainability, raising more than $1 billion collectively.

The day-to-day operations of Benevon as an organization are structured around the same model taught in our two-day workshops, with a focus on building lasting relationships with the nonprofit organizations served.
