About my consulting
“When I stumbled upon Mazarine’s blog at midnight, I was in search of answers; answers that would take my nonprofit to the next level. Being a new executive manager in a new career field, I often wondered if my current approach was the best approach or even an effective approach. I found the Wildwoman Fundraising blog and immediately signed up for the newsletter. I have been a huge supporter ever since. Mazarine confirmed my initial efforts and instincts, and she was a great encouragement to my capabilities. Through her webinars, very informative blog post, and newsletters, my e-mail marketing open rates have increased to 17% from 9%, my fundraising revenue has increased 50% in 7 months, and we have implemented key development plans that would have never been executed had it not been for her consulting. I have purchased both the Wildwoman’s Guide to Fundraising and the Wildwoman’s Guide to Social Media and both books are absolutely wonderful resources for any nonprofit management and development staff. I would certainly recommend Mazarine for any of your nonprofit/fundraising needs!” -Kenita Pierce-Lewis, Founder, H.O.P.E. Inc, Georgia.
