Unlike many consultants, he still works with donors at every stage of the giving pipeline. Imagine being able to talk strategy on your top donors every single month with Clark in a Monthly Moves Management Call.
Are there people giving to your organization at a modest level who have suggested they would be willing to give much more? With an innate ability to connect with donors on a personal level, Clark has a gift for going into a meeting and asking the right questions to unlock these gifts.
You can book an entire Major Gifts Fundraising Seminar or invite Clark to be a speaker at your next event. To get a million dollar gift you need a million dollar idea. Does your mission and vision excite your donors or have things gotten a little stale?
Your cause is important and if you feel stuck you owe it to your cause to get moving again. Clark can help. Is your organization about to or already involved in a capital or special campaign to raise money far beyond your annual fundraising needs? Clark can manage the entire process, working with professional staff, board members, and volunteers, as well as meeting with and soliciting prospective major donors.
Before you even embark on your campaign Clark can meet with prospective donors to assess the feasibility of your campaign. We send emails about once a week with great tips, resources, articles and other things you need to take your fundraising to the next level.

In fact, I had to call them to see if I could come out to see the facility. I was really disappointed, and Jeff, I was really upset about all that. I then asked what he has done since he gave the gift. What a total lack of respect for a donor.
They needed to build a brand new facility, as the old one was not suitable anymore. So, of course, I wanted to give. I think I received five letters, all from different people. Two were actually from veterans who were going to use that facility. Then, they asked me and my family to come for the groundbreaking with other donors.
After the building was done, they threw a party for us and did all kinds of speeches. It was impressive. The executive director actually calls me once a month to get my advice on things. It was impressive. The executive director actually calls me once a month to get my advice on things. Of course! So, there you have it.
