“When our agency experienced growing pains, our board evaluated the health of our organization and made the decision to move forward with a Capital Campaign. The process of interviewing and selecting council was our highest priority. We received proposals from almost 10 companies, interviewed 4, and ultimately selected M. Gale & Associates.
The feasibility study, and subsequent launch of our $3.5m campaign has been conducted in the most professional and consistent manner we could have hoped for. Missy and her team are more than just experts in their fields, they are teachers, mentors and navigators. They don’t hesitate to be honest with us about our “aggressive” expectations as well as our limitations. But, are quick to guide us through our hurdles and have put us on a path for success! I would recommend that any nonprofit entering into such an important phase of their strategic plan should seriously consider investing in solid management with proven success, and you won’t find anything less than that with M. Gale & Associates!”
