Fundraiser Strategies is a boutique consulting firm committed to the success and sustainability of the organizations we serve. Known for innovation and positive, collaborative working relationships with clients, founder John Gilchrist uses his 20+ years' experience in fundraising to craft workable, scalable and successful fund development plans. Areas of expertise include annual, major, and planned gifts; board training and development; capital campaign feasibility studies, plans, counsel, and management; interim leadership; donor surveys and comprehensive fund development audits.

Working hand-in-hand with clients' CDO and development officers, Fundraiser Strategies solves problems and overcomes obstacles so the client realizes the maximum return on investment.

One hallmark of Fundraiser Strategies is CDO and fund development officer coaching. Sometimes we all need an extra measure of accountability AND supportive 'cheerleading'.
