A veteran of capital and major gift campaigns ranging in size from $5 million to $210 million, I bring a unique blend of fundraising expertise combined with more than 20 years working with community-based organizations dedicated to social change.
I’m an award-winning fundraiser, and have been helping non-profit organizations like yours build and grow successful, sustainable fundraising programs since 1995.
A Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) since 2009, I specialize in major and leadership giving, and also have extensive experience in direct marketing, monthly giving, face-to-face fundraising, planned giving, and donor retention and stewardship.
In addition to my technical fundraising skills, I have more than 12 years’ experience working on non-profit senior management teams, and have core competencies in strategic planning, board governance, coaching and team building, and overall organizational development.
