Amsden Consulting has provided sound guidance and insight into all aspects of our development department from corporate sponsorship and budgeting to board development and major donor cultivation. We highly recommend their services.
Her high energy, positive attitude and commitment to social services make Heather a pleasure to work with.
Heather was a great partner in helping us to evaluate our fundraising strategy. Our organization had an event that was growing each year, but didn’t bring in the resources we needed. Working with Heather, we were able to craft and deploy a new plan that honored the organization’s tradition and history, while providing needed revenue.
Without Heather we never would have made the progress we made producing our Gala and elevating it to a new level!
Our work with Heather moved us to a new level in terms of messaging, marketing, promotions and fundraising. She helped us set up systems throughout our organization to maximize our effectiveness. Her perspective and coaching were invaluable.
Heather’s insightful assessments are based on a thorough review of documentation, thoughtful questions in her interviews, and solid experience in the field. Her reports are excellent foundations for building action plans in organizations that are seeking to move forward.
Heather conceived a clearly defined organizational structure for us. In the one year since we incorporated her suggestions, we have more than doubled the number of our partner programs.
Heather was able to analyze our organization from multiple perspectives, help us set realistic goals, and create and manage a plan (for our capital campaign) that kept us on task. All the while she was cheerful and fun to work with!
Heather was an excellent coach for both staff and Board Members. She helped our team be in a much better position to achieve our goals.
