Audits and Assessments

It's important to take time to benchmark your current performance in order to know where you want to go in the future. I'll review your organization for efficiency, awareness and perception, and strengths and weaknesses to provide actionable steps you can take now and in the future to build fundraising capacity. 

Campaign Management 

Whether your organization is celebrating a special anniversary, tackling your grants' strategy, kicking off planned giving, or preparing for a capital campaign, you need a partner that will take on the campaign management so you can focus on daily responsibilities.

Interim Support and
Fractional Staffing

Fundraising and engaging with donors can’t stop when your organization has an open development position to fill. I bring expertise and continuity, ensuring donors and staff have what they need and your fundraising stays on track.  

Speaking and Facilitation

Ongoing professional development is vital to the success of an organization. It can be difficult to find the right training that addresses all of the areas for growth without your team spending hours or days in sessions that only somewhat apply. I’ll design an inspiring keynote, custom workshops, retreats, or training for your organization to address your team’s challenges and fit into your timeline.
