Missionaries, You Can Raise More Support & Get Fully Funded
If you’d like to develop a steady stream of recurring financial support with more stability and less stress so you can have greater impact, then reading this page will become one of the best investments you can make in your ministry.
Raising Long-Term Support Requires A Shift Away From Old Habits
The old way of raising support means uncomfortable face-to-face meetings, paper newsletters, tons of phone calls, or speaking at churches and hoping people give.
But chasing donations and hoping one-time donors become monthly supporters is stressful and unpredictable.
That's Why We’re Thrilled You Have An Interest In Fully Funded Academy!
We're Mary Valloni and Mike Kim, and the system we provide eliminates stress and helps you grow your donor base, stay "top of mind" with supporters, and build relationships in a way that creates dependable, reliable support for your ministry … every single month.
We've helped organizations like the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and the Special Olympics and ministries like Catalyst and People of the Second Chance generate millions of dollars. We've seen what works (and what doesn't) and we're here to help you build long-lasting, stress-free and stable financial support.

Missionaries in South Africa
The one idea Mary shared on building a fundraising support team has taken us from 35% funded to over 80% funded ... in under 100 days! I was starting to wear down a bit in my own striving, God’s grace took over when I took action and implemented this idea.
So What is Fully Funded Academy?
Fully Funded Academy is a monthly membership training program that gives you the clarity and confidence to launch, grow, and scale your financial support base.
We’ve taken over 18 years of working with thousands of missionaries, ministries, and non-profits and distilled it down into the few key strategies that will make all the difference for you.
When you apply this system and strategies, you’ll have more breathing room, less stress, and a lot more time to do the work that matters.
Specifically, Fully Funded Academy is Based Around the 7 Core Strategies For Long-Term Support Raising Success, Starting With...
1. Focus Your Vision
How much do you need to become fully funded? We want you to see that your budget is not only worth funding, but it’s worth being fully funded! This is the foundational step that all of your support raising stands on. If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re never going to get there.
3. Enlist Your Team
Just like sports teams need team captains, you need a team captain for your support raising team. In this strategic step, you are looking for a sharp business-minded volunteer who is capable of showing others how to give generously and support your efforts. By inviting just one individual or couple to serve in this role, you’re showing others how they can give too!
5. Deploy Your Team
All good teams are made up of strong team members who are clear on what their role is and isn’t. Every member needs to have ownership in a project or task that only they can do. If your team members don’t “feel” like they have the go ahead to share your message, they won’t. We'll give you the materials and the messaging to send your team out on your behalf to raise funds.
7. Make Your Difference
The reason you’re even asking for support is so you can ultimately make a difference in the world! There’s no greater change agent than the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being fully funded allows you to focus on the task at hand. It’s in this final step that we celebrate the incredible team of people you've pulled together and the life-changing work that your ministry is doing!

Everything You Need Will Be At Your Fingertips. We're Not Throwing You Some Random Tactics, We're Training You In A Proven System.
This is based on our experience working with thousands of support raisers. It’s based on our real-world experience of being in the trenches helping missionaries, parachurch orgs, church plants, and NPOs like the American Cancer Society, the ALS Association, and the Special Olympics raise high 6 and even 7-figures.
It's also based on the hours and hours we spend every year consulting high level organizations from all around the world. These are the exact strategies and ideas you need to launch, grow, and scale your financial support and get fully funded. The best part? We're going to be with you every step of the way.
It's Not for the “Money Magician”
This is the person who thinks that just by enrolling, thousands of dollars are going to magically start rolling into the bank account. As mentioned above, it takes a commitment to learn and actually requires action. You have to implement.
If you apply what you learn, you will get results. But the results won’t come just because you enrolled. You have to actually use what you learn.
It’s Not for the “Mr. or Ms. Know-It-All” or “Been There, Done That”
What we’ll be sharing with you works and we have LOTS of real world stories of clients who have doubled, tripled, or even 10x'd their support. If you’re someone who likes to focus on why something “wouldn’t work”, then this is not for you either.
We’ve said before, many of the strategies are counter intuitive to what most people teach – and that’s partly why they work so well. You have to be open to what we're sharing otherwise it’s going to be a frustrating experience for all three of us.
Will This Work For Me?
If you’ve read this far, we know that you’re serious.
But there could be a few questions running through your mind such as…
“Is this program suited for short-term missionaries, or career missionaries?”
“Will this program work for me if I serve in a closed nation?”
“I’m worried I won’t have enough time to do this program.”
“How is this different from other programs?”
“I don’t want to create another job for myself.”
“I always get stuck on the technology.”
“But there is already so many other missionaries raising support. I feel like I’m lost in the crowd.”
“Nobody will listen to me … I’m not [fill-in-the-blank].”
“My ministry is so small … I’m not sure this would be worth it.”
“How much can I expect to make?”
Backed By Proof: Fully Funded Academy Gets Real People, Real Results.
Fully Funded Academy has been proven to get results in a wide variety of ministries. Take a look at some recent students who decided Fully Funded Academy was right for them:
Christian & Hannah Swails
“We have been supporting raising for the last 3 years and raised 60% of our goal. After implementing the strategies from Mike and Mary we have sky rocketed to 95% in just 2 months. We are so thankful for Mike and Mary and their obedience to God’s calling on their lives!”
“I’ve been a missionary for over 20 years and so thankful for Fully Funded Academy. It’s changed my whole story in support-raising. They’ve given me tools that have given me confidence, and as a result people are giving more. It’s taught me to serve and not 'sell' the ministry. Such good stuff!”
“Thanks to an email approach and a fundraising sequence that I learned in Fully Funded Academy, I surpassed my $2,500 fundraising goal for a month-long overseas coaching trip after only 10 days!”
We’ve Said It Once,
We’ll Say It Again
If you follow the training we provide for you, you will make progress, and that’s why we guarantee it with a…
“You’re Fully Covered” Guarantee: Try It for A Full 14-Days, 100% Risk Free.
If you are unhappy with Fully Funded Academy during the first 2 weeks, we want to give you your money back. Here's why:
Over the last eighteen years, we've worked with thousands of missionaries and organizations in a variety of "markets" -- but they all had one thing in common: the need to raise more money.
We've also been coaching and consulting larger organizations to help them clarify their message and raise more money. We've seen what works in more markets than we can possibly explain. That means we've invested thousands of hours mastering this craft and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of our own money testing, tweaking and identifying the few key strategies that make all the difference.
These strategies have produced tremendous results for us and our clients. But before putting them into a program, we knew we needed to replicate them in a wide variety of markets.
So for the last year we've flown all over the world sharing the academy materials with multiple groups – many of which started with no idea on how to even get started with becoming fully funded. And after they implemented these strategies, they too saw profound results that allowed them to fund their ministries. The Fully Funded approach just flat out works.
Here’s How the Guarantee Works
Go through the program. If you don’t love it, email us during the first 14 days, show us you’re doing the exercises, and we'll immediately send you a prompt and courteous refund.
By the way, we ask you to send us your work because we know if you implement what we teach, you will get results. However, if you’re thinking of purchasing without doing anything, we both know you won’t make any progress.
We're not interested in spending energy supporting “tire kickers”… and hopefully this isn’t you. Our Fully Funded tribe will be made up of people who take their ministries seriously: people who understand the value of recurring donations and what that means for their long term success. These are the people we know will succeed with Fully Funded Academy.
That’s why we want you to go through the course for 14 days, implement what we share and begin experiencing the benefits. Fully Funded Academy is the most complete system for producing a stable, reliable, recurring revenue stream… and we can’t wait to help you do the same.
