Wishbone Services

As founder and principal of Wishbone, LLC, I work with non-profit leaders to develop strategies to further the engagement of sustaining and prospective donors with the intent of inspiring philanthropic support. I help to identify, cultivate, and solicit support from prospective donors. I draft compelling narrative materials to showcase your organization’s strengths, to increase your financial capacity, and to articulate your organization’s impact on the community. I have raised millions of dollars for organizations in varied sectors: arts, culture, and humanities; civil rights; education and research; environment; health; human services, international; and public benefit and community improvement. Moreover, the additional expertise of my adjunct consultants can be brought in as needed on a project basis.
