“You want to compose a good world — it’s an honorable and noble profession.”
Maya Angelou

  • Would you like to be more comfortable and successful raising major gifts?
  • Do you feel like you’re working harder and still not reaching your giving goals? Do you need to be inspired again? Does the whole team need to get excited again?
  • Do you wish your board, volunteers or faculty would help more (or at all!) in the fundraising and development process? Wouldn’t it be great if they actually liked it?

Over the course of twenty-plus years of in-the-trenches major gift fundraising and management at the University of Wisconsin Foundation, I developed a deep respect and energy for the impact and joy philanthropy brings to our organizations, institutions and communities. Now I coach and share the mindset and authentic relationship-building actions so you, too, can experience major gift success and have the resources to compose your good world…and enjoy your life.
