Bresee has a strong portfolio of foundation and corporate donors, but gifts tend to stay at the same amount year after year, or even decrease over time. We want to do a better job engaging these donors to not only maintain relationships, but solicit larger gifts over time."Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.

Christine is awesome! She is extremely knowledgeable, and gave me lots of actionable recommendations to improve our donor stewardship strategies. Thank you, Christine! I hope to connect again in the future.
She was such a pleasure to speak with! It's clear that she takes her job seriously and cares much about the organization and the people they serve. Dervla was open, honest, and receptive, and it helped to move the conversation forward. I look forward to staying in touch with Dervla!
