Raising Awareness, Making Connections, Finding Donors   

Why do some nonprofit organizations seem to be charmed with healthy donor support, while others struggle?  Simple.  Donors look for opportunities to make a difference.  If your impact is waning, or if you fail to successfully communicate the impact you are having, you lose support.

With extensive experience in philanthropy and marketing, I can help you:

  • Identify public and private resources
  • Plan and execute fundraising campaigns
  • Develop relationships – and therefore financial resources – with funders (individuals, businesses, nonprofits and the community)
  • Develop an effective donor communications program including newsletters, annual reports and regular updates
  • Identify grantors most aligned with your mission and develop grant requests that receive positive response

Outstanding results

Reformatting one college’s annual employee fundraising campaign resulted in a 197% increase in donations and a 100% increase in campaign participation.  Let’s see what I can do for you!

Kelly improved our fundraising results by helping our organization create a fund development plan, build lasting relationships, and identify new opportunities. Her comprehensive work with the board and me is taking the Foundation to the next level. We are now awarding more scholarships every year.
