About Shannon Brooke Mantrom

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Chip, since 1993 and we have two amazing girls, Sydney & Chloe. In 2012 I stepped into TWO dream jobs: Area Solutions Coordinator for Praxis Fundraising Solutions; and, Marketing/Managing Director for Leap to Success, the project club of Launchpad Job Club - Austin's #1 networking organization for job-seeking professionals. With Praxis I work with schools, school clubs, and other non-profit organizations to help them reach their fundraising goals via product-based fundraising. With Leap to Success I get the opportunity to assist Austin-area non-profits through short-term, pro bono project work utilizing members from Launchpad Job Club. This is a real win-win for all involved: the non-profits get free professional assistance for technology, marketing, graphic design, and/or business development; and, the volunteers from Launchpad Job Club gain positive entries for their resumes and LinkedIn profiles.

Book your SPRING fundraiser NOW!

January is  ideal to start booking your spring fundraiser! The holidays are over, the second semester is just starting, and spring sports season (and STAAR testing!) are still a couple months off. Setting up your organization’s spring fundraiser NOW eliminates scrambling for space on the school or team/club activities calendar come March and April. Don’t let the bluebonnets pop up before you’ve booked your spring fundraiser!






It’s not too late to hold a fall fundraiser!


November is a great month to hold a fundraiser!

As the weather gets cooler here in Central Texas attentions turn toward fall colors and upcoming holidays. It’s also the BEST time to plan that spring fundraiser and head into the holidays without the added stress of scrambling for a spring fundraiser after the new year.

Right Response (first aid kits) make PERFECT stocking stuffers!

If spirit gear is more to your liking, Spirit Sleeves make for the ultimate show of team spirit – great for upcoming basketball season!
