Hi, I'm Heidi. I was once described by a group of professionals as "happy, passionate, engaging and stylish."
How I'd describe me? An enthusiastic, cause-driven, and compassionate difference-maker.
I love everything about nonprofit fundraising - from researching prospective donors and analyzing critical fundraising data to courting and engaging new, existing, and lapsed supporters.
In 2018, I decided to venture from the security of my full-time job as a Development Director to become a consultant. My drive to launch GreenKite Fundraising was fueled by my desire to serve multiple worthy projects and to "give back" all that I have learned (and continue to learn) in this field.
Your mission is to be shared with the world, and the GreenKite Fundraising team is here to help you accomplish that!
