Drew Friedrich

COO at Operation Blessing

I plowed through the book on my flight back from a conference where I heard Matt speak. I’ve ordered copies for my whole team, as this is the most valuable book I’ve ever come across for leaders trying to make sense of all the things to do to grow.

Dafny Vogel

VP of Marketing at Greater Good Charities

The biggest take-away from the book was identifying all single points of failure. I am our single point of failure. Task by task, I am creating descriptions and have already handed off some of them. Thank you for that!

Carla Grant

Executive Director at Open Hearts Open Minds

This is the book I wish I had when building our nonprofit Project Koru. I love how easy it is to put it to use leading my team.

Tonia Farman

CEO at Queen of Hearts

The secrets behind a high-growth nonprofit are captured right here in easy to execute lessons. A must-read for a busy leader ready to spearhead their growth.

Jake Wood

Co-founder and Executive Chairman at Team Rubicon

This is an actionable and insightful read to increase your nonprofit’s impact. Matt has a friendly, honest writing style, making it fun to read. He shares plenty of examples and takeaways.

Drew Keske

Director, Sustainability Experiences at The Momentum

I rarely read a book in a single setting, but your straightforward, fast-paced, and light-hearted presentation found me wanting to know what you would share next. Before I knew it, I was done reading, and the better for it. I love the specificity and the accessibility of the frameworks and examples that you provided.

Steven Cohn

Founder at Write It For Me

Read Matt Scott’s “The High Growth Nonprofit,” if you aspire to shed that 5% annual growth plan and replace it with exponential growth. Are you asking, “How do we get to the next level?” Read Matt’s book.

Tony Martignetti

Host at Nonprofit Radio podcast

Making decisions can be hard. Matt shares important frameworks to make decision-making easy and directly tied to growth. 

David Schwab

Director of Growth Marketing at Funraise

A big thing that changed for me is my mindset. The way I look at fundraising BB (before the book) vs AB (after the book) has changed. I think bigger now. I realize that we can do so much more if we're strategic.

“Running a nonprofit does not leave you with a lot of free time, so I really wanted to give mission leaders a quick read with actionable strategies. A book that could be read on a domestic flight and left on the seat because it’s all about moving fast and thinking boldly about your nonprofit’s growth.”

The Rapid Growth Workshop

A marathon-long strategic planning process won’t give you that high-growth payoff at the finish line. You’ll end up with months of research in a pretty PDF, which none of your hardworking staff has time to read.

Speed and simplicity is the real growth formula.

CauseMic’s Rapid Growth Workshop takes leadership teams through an intensely structured, streamlined—down to the nuts and bolts—strategic planning process that rewards them with an action-oriented plan in-hand on their way out.
