"Thank you for the extraordinary day of Board Education you conducted for the Adena Health Foundation.  Your extensive knowledge of group dynamics and healthcare philanthropy made our fundraising workshop enlightening and productive.  Your personal touch and affable manner puts even the most reluctant board members at ease.  Your "friend-raising to fundraising" approach was informative, thought-provoking and fun.  Our Board is moving forward with the recommendations you made, especially the action plan. Thank you." - - Ralph Metzger, CFRE, President, Adena Health Foundation


We are a highly specialized consulting practice working to create healthy philanthropic results, provide solutions, and deliver cost-effective and innovative professional services for our clients - nonprofit health care organizations that serve society and their individual communities.  

We improve the fundraising performance of academic medical centers, health systems, community hospitals, health organizations, hospice organizations, nursing homes, and health-related non-profits by focusing on enhancing the important relationships between the philanthropic donors and those that provide the preventive, curative, promotional, or rehabilitative health care services to individuals, families and communities.

Our Value Proposition:

  • We provide unmatched service and solutions that create tremendous value for our nonprofit health care sector clients;
  • We fully appreciate the growing pressure and compelling need for transformational philanthropy in health, health sciences, medical education, research and discovery, and clinical care for the most challenging patients;
  • We believe there is no substitute for the power of specialized knowledge and intimately understand the complexities of raising philanthropic investment for the health care sector;
  • We appreciate that donor generosity to health causes is truly distinctive and indisputably linked to the health of the individual donor and/or their family, friends, and their community;
  • We partner with our clients to increase their philanthropic support through grateful patient programs, and annual, major, and planned giving strategies;
  • We combine an innovative mix of tradition with advanced fundraising technology to keep pace with the evolving needs of today’s fundraising organizations; and,
  • We are adept at applying our first-hand experiences to the nonprofit health care sector, where we know business and process can be more challenging.
