strategy

Whether you need full-service fundraising support, to grow your understanding of fundraising practices, or a strategy for accelerated growth, I am a seasoned fundraiser that can get you on the right track. I understand the needs of organizations and the needs of donors and am skilled at aligning the two, generating excitement for the cause, and articulating impact. 

From growing one organization's revenue by 100% in two years to exceeding fundraising targets for another organization by 75% in one year, including a grants portfolio that saw 110% growth, strategic and creative thinking, comprehensive planning, and a relationship-centric approach are at the core of my fundraising successes. 

With over a decade of experience and core competencies in donor stewardship, fundraising strategy, revenue diversification, grant writing, government relations, annual giving, campaigns, and events, I have lead several organizations to fundraising successes that far exceeded their goals, enabling them to positively impact more lives.


The Ask

Grant writing and proposals

With a strong track record I can help you significantly increase revenue from corporate sponsorship, foundation grants, and government funding through beautifully crafted proposals. 

I combine my expertise in writing, fundraising, communications, donor stewardship, and government relations to craft high impact grant submissions, funding requests, and post-funding reports. 

Donor stewardship

Stewarding donors and stakeholders in a sincere way is the key to increasing their commitment. Sharing stories, celebrating their successes, and crafting personal asks can help to:

  • Upgrade donors into a major gift category
  • Convert volunteers into donors
  • Transform one-time gifts into monthly commitments

Campaigns

Campaigns are a great way to rally support around your cause. Whether you're launching a new monthly donor program, seeking project-based funding, disseminating a seasonal ask, or simply trying to garner more support for your cause, campaigns offer a targeted way to not only generate funds, but also increase brand awareness, and ignite a culture of philanthropy in your organization. 


revenue diversification

One of the keys to fundraising success is strategic planning and revenue diversification. Diversification comes in many forms from increasing your grants portfolio, creating a social enterprise, acquiring corporate sponsors, launching campaigns, or improving annualized giving. You need a revenue diversification strategy that meets the funding needs of your organization, is realistic and accounts for staff capacity and resources. I will start by assessing your organization's needs, conducting an audit of existing practices, and developing a strategy with actionable items that will set you on the path to success.
