He was very well prepared for the call, researching our organization in advance so that he had a good foundational understanding of our work.

"As you probably remember the Board set my EOY fundraising goal at $160,000 (operating burn to last until the gala in May). They themselves pledged $10K. Taking your advice I leveraged that with about 10 donors and leveraged the matches against other matches and had a couple of “last minute” EOY type family foundations offer us grants. All in, all done, I raised (with my team and God’s provision OF COURSE) $239,000.  VERY HAPPY – thank you for all your counsel & advice!!! It was SUPER helpful."  Suellen D., Meals by Grace
