With more than 30 years of direct fund raising experience, Mr. Macnab is the developer of nationally recognized annual giving, direct mail and planned giving programs. He has presented fund raising training seminars and provided general fund raising counsel, capital campaign, and planned and major gift support to clients throughout the nation.

Recent projects include counsel to establish a medical center foundation in Tennessee, a veterans legacy center in Wisconsin and helping plan two $5-million endowment campaigns for a Chicago-based national foundation, assisting several smaller efforts and conducting executive personnel searches. Major retained relationships in the fourth quarter of 2002 include work with The American Thoracic Society, New York, NY; Delnor-Community Health Care Foundation, Geneva, IL; The Edward (Hospital) Foundation, Naperville, IL and The Grains Foundation, Washington, DC.

For more than three decades, Mr. Macnab has provided ongoing, project and capital/endowment/major gift campaign counsel to associations, schools, hospitals and social services agencies and has worked successfully with scores of volunteers, executive leaders, administrators, development professionals and philanthropists, building a solid record of verifiable achievement.

Mr. Macnab is comfortable in a variety of roles including that of teacher, student, coach, mentor, colleague and friend. He takes great personal satisfaction from helping others find ways to build their dreams.

To do so he has had to learn (and is skilled and experienced at helping others learn) the difference between fund raising and philanthropy.
