Can’t see the spaying and neutering clinic for the empty dog and cat bowls that need to be filled? Do you postpone long-term plans because of today’s crisis? Engage me to help you distinguish between what’s urgent and what’s important and then sort them into a coherent plan of action.

Craft your message. Stay on message. Easier said then done. But my 35 plus years of personal commitment and professional experience in international animal welfare means I know how it’s done. Let me show you how. We will work together to develop and implement a focussed and effective communications strategy.

Fundraising

  • Developed fundraising narratives for organizations and their donors
  • Created and implemented house appeals and major donor mail campaigns
  • Personally solicited significant financial contributions from individuals, organizations and foundations
  • Negotiated the sale of The Animals’ Agenda library to the Tom Regan Animal Rights Archive at North Carolina State University in 2003

Experience taught me that fundraising is all about building relationships. My expertise is in writing ‘narratives’ between you and your supporters. From general members to major donors and from direct mail to personal solicitation, I will help you improve your ability to raise funds for your organization.
