Outside the box.

Helping nonprofits secure the financial resources they need to change the world has been the focus of my life’s work for nearly 30 years. In today’s challenging environment, this requires a fresh approach to orchestrating capital campaigns and developing major gifts strategies. It’s cliche to say you need to think outside of the box. I prefer to ignore the boxes altogether and find imaginative ways to get things done. See more about my experience and results on the About and Client pages on this website.

In focus.

Storytelling has been a lifelong passion and key part of my success in fundraising. Whether in person or in marketing material, donors are far more generous in responding to stories than they are to “funding needs.”  Now a collaboration with Wide Awake Films brings an exciting new dimension to these storytelling capabilities. Read more about our collaboration here and see an example of it in progress: The American Artist: The Life and Times of George Caleb Bingham.

On Track.

Savvy fundraisers know you have to be organized and stay on task in order to be successful. That’s why I designed On Track Fundraising Software for development professionals. Learn more about this project management app at
