"From the moment I first met Nancy and Jenna I knew they were the right people to help us prepare for the final stretch of our comprehensive campaign. Their ability to listen to what an organization needs to create a workshop filled with practical, common-sense wisdom built upon years of successful fundraising experience is exceptional. The result was a successful interactive half-day workshop created to enhance the partnerships between our development staff and the university's academic leadership. Generous Change has helped increase the capacity of our organization and my ability to lead a talented group of fundraisers. "
"Generous Change's major gift donor engagement and fundraising techniques help all major gift officers be more successful - from the seasoned veteran to the person new to the profession. Our major gift officers implemented Generous Change's ideas with immediate results and we are incorporating their techniques into our on-boarding. We know our cold call visit success rate is improving and our major gift asks are more donor-centered and timely. "
"Generous Change has been a terrific partner in helping us to raise the capacity of our nonprofits in Douglas County. Their Fundraisers' University over-enrolled in under two weeks. Response and results have been outstanding. We have better relationships with more effective local nonprofits today and great buzz across the community."
"Jenna and Nancy brought an energy to our workshop that kept participants engaged and learning. Their interactive format challenged our nonprofit boards and staffs to reflect on their passions, organizational roles and needs, which fueled an enthusiastic open dialogue in small-group work. They offered practical solutions useful to all in the room, regardless of organization size or structure. We thank them leaving us thinking, and, most importantly, inspired!"
