You already have a full time job and you’re going to do this, too?
Ah, yes, you’ve just been asked to chair this year’s major fundraiser. You’re totally flattered, but you can already feel your palms starting to sweat. It’s a great cause, you want to be supportive…and this would look great on a resume, but it could also be a total disaster if it doesn’t go well. What to do?
We’ve worked with dozens of clients in exactly your position. And we’ve helped them raise millions of dollars and cultivate many new patrons and donors, through building sustainable fundraising programs.
“Bonnie’s vision and creativity took our original idea of a small fundraising event and turned it into a very successful benefit concert attended by over 500 people. Her organizational skills, ability to keep everyone on track to meet deadlines, and connections within the community were paramount in pulling this event together in a short amount of time. Aside from her experience and knowledge in organizing fundraisers, we were most impressed by the passion and energy she displayed for our cause.”

"What Bonnie did for our band was fantastic. What Bonnie did for the the advancement of Women's Cancer Awareness was truly phenomenal. She put together a wonderful event - one that my colleagues and patients will always remember. From the arrangement of funding to the organization of our band and other local Portland music dignitaries, she was organized and kept everything running efficiently. At the same time, she kept the days leading up to our event delightful and stress-free. We will enlist her services when we do this again."
William Winter, M.D.
“Having recently worked with this team on the Artists Repertory Theatre Gala, I can say without a doubt that their professional expertise took us to the next level, and best of all, the money raised far exceeded that of any previous year."
Director of Communication and Large Plan Sales
The Standard Insurance Company
"Bonnie was brought into this project very late in the game, with only three months to pull it off. Yet, at the very first meeting she was able to take the kernel of a good idea and immediately develop it into the smartest and ultimately most successful design for raising money for our organization. The best news is that it all worked. Anyone who is lucky enough to work with her is in for a rare and wonderful and rewarding experience on so many levels."
