We apply business concepts to charitable organizations to help them become more efficient and effective. When working with businesses, we utilize our nonprofit experience to improve corporate culture and increase community awareness and goodwill.
We help individuals plan their philanthropy by explaining gift giving strategies, helping them to choose charities doing the best work, and guiding them in planning their legacies. We also train boards of directors on how to be the most effective, including their responsibilities for raising funds. business strategy strategic planning capital campaigns
After many years as a planned giving and principal gifts professional at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Dartmouth Medical School, I earned an MBA to increase my knowledge of team dynamics, organizational culture, and strategic planning. Subsequently, I assumed Vice Chancellor and CEO positions with leadership responsibilities within billion dollar campaigns. My business skills in financial management, marketing, negotiation and human capital development help me make nonprofits and corporations stronger. I draw from the mission-driven values of the nonprofit world to build more satisfying and productive corporate work environments.

"Linda was incredibly helpful in getting our most recent capital campaign off the ground. She provided a metered, best-practices approach to laying the groundwork for our project. Simply put, she "gets it." Linda comes to the table with a great deal of experience in the field, and is adept at working with many different personalities and varying levels of fundraising experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a well-established and inspiring consultant." Celia Lerch, Executive Director, Congregation Micah
