“The value Maureen places on philanthropy, coupled with her skills in prospect development, opened new vistas for our nonprofit. She established a communications plan, including a donor-focused newsletter, and invited volunteers and board members to write short essays on selected topics. She led board discussions on advancement strategy and created a presentation booklet that tells the story of our organization in a compelling way.
Maureen set the stage for our first annual campaign and successfully solicited leadership gifts. In our grant writing, she advised seeking capacity building funds and wrote our first submission to a foundation for that need.
Her tireless energy and her ideas for making us a stronger, more secure organization made my almost-daily work with her a stimulating and a joyful partnership.”

"In an interview Maureen conducted with a donor, the sensitive subject emerged “what constitutes ‘worth preserving’ in the world of historic preservation.” Maureen expertly managed the write-up in a way that satisfied the various opinions on the subject. Maureen writes well and respects edits, striving always for an outstanding piece. It is a pleasure to work with her."

“The Library was considering a campaign, and the feasibility study that Maureen did gave us a realistic picture of our donor base. Especially helpful in the process was her development of our case statement and other written material for our fundraising program. She produced wonderful documents that really got the attention of the reader.”
