Here is what a few people think of my work:
"“Hiring a development consultant can be tough for a small non-profit. We have certain needs. Often a Development Consultant come in with a lot of templates and basically says – this is the way you have to do it. Caitlin is different. She listens – learns about the mission, vision, values, board members, staff, etc. complies it all and comes up with strategic plans specific for the organization. I cannot tell you how refreshing and helpful this is.”
---Julianne Brienza, Executive Director, Capital Fringe
"Caitlin is a dedicated professional who is both a strategic thinker and a tireless worker. She brings enthusiasm, passion and common sense know-how to every aspect of her work. She has been crucial to the improvements we have made this year in all aspects of our organization: assessing and streamlining processes, developing and conducting fund-raising and marketing approaches, overseeing personnel, and improving reports.
nonprofit, no matter the mission, would benefit tremendously by having Caitlin
on board. Caitlin doesn’t simply provide generic or cookie cutter assistance;
rather, she has learned our organization inside and out, tailoring her work
accordingly. I cannot recommend her highly enough." ---Beth Prentice,Chair, Educate the Children
“Caitlin taught me everything worth knowing about fundraising, particularly about cultivating individual donors. She brings a unique "triple threat" to her work: Speed, Depth of Experience, and the Ability to Connect with any kind of constituent, from high-end donors to high-school interns . . . Caitlin's ability to quickly size up a situation, define a problem, and create strategies for addressing it is unlike anything I've seen. I look forward to working with her again!”
---Michael Barsanti, Senior Program Specialist at Philadelphia Cultural Management Initiative (former Associate Director, Rosenbach Museum & Library)
“Working with Caitlin was undoubtedly a highlight of my tenure at the Arden. She brought boundless energy and enthusiasm to the development program, as well as great humor and warmth. Caitlin is someone who can sit down and crank out a grant proposal during the day and then spend the evening interacting gracefully with board members and donors. She's a terrific writer and one of the smartest people I've ever met. She's focused, strategic and hard-working. I'd hire her again in a second.
---Michael L Norris, Executive Director of ArtReach (former Director of External Relations, Arden Theatre Company)
