    About Me and My Work

  • What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
  • I work with small and early-stage nonprofits to support their vision for doing good in the world. This might include articulating programs, board development, diversifying revenue streams, creating communications and fundraising plans.

    I work with many clients in a remote coaching capacity with twice-monthly sessions to allow for proactive and reactive decision-making around strategy, communications, and fundraising. Together we work on donor-centric messaging, data-driven segmentation of donors, and fundraising campaign planning (online, event, personal solicitation).

    I also work with many clients on strategic planning and implementation to help them bring vision (think BIG, dream) to their current reality (program impact, organizational infrastructure, engagement with stakeholders) and their vision to reality (practical steps to get where you want to be).

    Many clients' pain-points include board governance/management, board engagement in fundraising, managing fundraising when you're the Chief Everything Officer, launching individual and major donor programs, creating a powerful case for support, and finding and implementing a CRM.
  • Why would someone choose to work with you?
  • My passion is working with small and early-stage nonprofits so our focus is on making a great impact with limited resources of time, talent, and treasure. I offer encouraging accountability, recognizing nothing happens overnight, but each day brings an opportunity to do something. I bring a wealth of knowledge from working with over 250 nonprofits, in three countries and more than 30 states during my 30+ years in the nonprofit arena. As a Certified Nonprofit Professional, I bring understanding and expertise in all facets of a nonprofit organization to drive fundraising success. Without the money, we have no mission!
