Keith;

It is my pleasure to send along this vote of confidence for your services as the fundraising professional for our feasibility study and capital campaign.  It’s a pleasure to work with a recognized and respected professional who goes beyond the parameters of a contract in order to help a project succeed.  You have been a partner, friend, and professional counsel as we have worked together, and I could not have reached the goals of our campaign without your help, advice and expertise.  Thank you.

Sharon Nunnelee, Executive Director, West Michigan Trails & Greenways Coalition


Keith provided an organized, clear process to help us develop our message, create a strategy, identify prospects and solicit gifts. He made a seemingly daunting task manageable (and dare I say, even fun), as well as most importantly successful! I would highly recommend using Keith for any campaign project – large or small.

Any organization that works with Keith will be in good hands.  He is a consummate professional and an excellent consultant.   He has a great personality and sense of humor, is extremely organized, detail-oriented, and responsive.   He provided incredible guidance, direction, and all the tools needed to be successful with our multi-million dollar campaign.  He was always two steps ahead of us with providing the “next steps”, agendas, meeting materials, and other items that we needed.  While I could list many more attributes of Keith’s, I will just add that everyone who worked with Keith on our campaign respected and trusted him.  We would hire Keith again in a heartbeat and would refer him to any and everyone.

Keith worked with all levels of our organization to create a fundraising campaign that took the unique nature of the Foundation and our campaign into consideration. He gave us the tools and infrastructure we needed to be successful and provided the kind of encouragement to both volunteers and staff that helped us remain motivated and focused. With his help we were able to achieve our capital campaign goals and engage a new group of volunteers in a way that was meaningful, fun and successful.
