Moceanic: A values-based business

Moceanic is a values-based business. We are about changing the world and working with organisations that share our values.

We are a team of people who believe in equality, fairness, compassion, and love.

We love working with people trying to protect the environment and reduce the suffering of animals and humans through research, education, care, arts and advocacy – organisations such as hospitals, cancer care and research, overseas aid, universities, arts and development.

In addition, we love to work with progressive charities, educators and movements working in social justice, poverty alleviation, education, LGBT+ rights, arts, human and animal rights, anti-discrimination, and protecting the environment.

This could include organisations such as Planned Parenthood, ACLU, Amnesty International, WWF, Greenpeace and progressive political organisations like GetUp! and MoveOn.  

We won’t work with organisations that oppose these movements.

Our content is also available for agency staff, consultants and suppliers who work with the sort of organisations that we support.

This is important to us, and we reserve the right to choose not to train people working directly for, or on behalf of, organisations whose missions or values do not align with ours.

Here’s What Smart Fundraisers Have to Say About Our Team


Fundraising and Your Board: The Right Stuff was a paradigm shift in how I thought about boards, board members and governance. If you are having issues with your board, take the time to watch this short course.

I just recommended Jeff Brook’s Irresistible Communications course to a colleague! Fundraisers should take this course to learn about (or brush up on) how to write the ask, how to structure the ask letter, what language to use and stay as far away from as possible, what exactly to write the ask about… and that’s all just module 1! Seriously, you will print out some of the slides and put them on your wall, they are that universally applicable.

Hidden Treasures may be the single most helpful webinar I’ve ever done, and I highly recommend it.

Moceanic doesn’t just give you high quality training in technical questions (like how to write a direct mail appeal), but also provides you with the overall strategy your organization needs. That’s what’s been so helpful for us compared to just doing this or that webinar or training outside of Moceanic.

Joining the Fundraisingology Lab has pushed all my actions as a fundraiser to the next level. I have had more successes with targets and donor interactions than I could have predicted. I could go on but I’ll leave it at two sentences

Thank you so much Sean Triner, Jeff Brooks, Christiana Stergiou, Tom Ahern and everyone at Moceanic!

I set myself a goal to complete the entire Fundraising Success Path training within 2 months. Mission accomplished!

Thank you all for all the hard work you do to make every course seem simple, yet packed with useful information that any fundraiser can rely on.

Thanks again for the inspiration, education, and support! This is the best community I’ve ever had the privilege to be part of. I learn something new every day. 💖🍷👩🏼‍🎓🎉

“As a very small charity with 600 donors and two members of staff… this has been the best value, the best training, and potentially, the best long-term initiative that we have ever done. I would highly recommend the course, especially to any small organisations who might be thinking, ‘We’re too small to do this.’ I would just go for it. You’ve got nothing to lose, everything to gain.”

“IMHO: The best, most thorough, most entertaining, most valuable training ever. Never-ending bonus materials, too.”

“I was very impressed that this course covered both the basics of doing a survey, and also the more advanced things you could do to improve your survey if you’ve done one before. It wasn’t just a ‘Survey 101’ course where you only find out the very rudiments.

I also really appreciated the bonus material, especially the planning tools and examples. And, it also helped me understand how to be more donor-centric in general!”
