Rock Star Clients I’ve Worked With

Rob Danson

Head of Marketing and Communications
Food on Foot

Mazarine Treyz has been an integral part in helping Food on Foot strengthen its nonprofit marketing, communications and development plans. From e-newsletter strategies to appeal letters to overall website design and messaging, Mazarine knows how to communicate to our team in a clear and goal-oriented fashion yielding positive results. We raised more, year on year with appeal letters and e-newsletters largely thanks to her help.

Natalie Ramos

Chicago, IL

Thank you for all your webinars and newsletters! I know you have helped me become a better fundraiser and have helped me find the words when having difficult conversations.

Czarina Boyce

Little Engineers, Board Member
Hope Chinese Charter School

I personally hired Mazarine Treyz as a coach/mentor to guide me strategize our fundraising efforts at Hope Chinese Charter School. I am proudly to say our first campaign was the monthly giving and we closed at $101,590.00 (above our goal) the highest ever raised. This success was due to the fact that we are able to focus on it and deliver the message at every touch point as possible. All I did was apply the strategy I learned from Mazarine.

Patricia Osage

Executive Director
LIFE ElderCare

I always love your emails and read as much as I can. You are real. You speak to me! So THANK YOU! If we were rich, you’d be one of the ones I’d donate to- cuz you give a lot (and are probably responsible for a lot of positive change you never actually see) for free!

Renee Motazedi

Development Director
Joplin Area Catholic Schools

I was stuck on my appeal letter. I toiled over many versions of my letter and nothing felt right. I consulted with you, and shortly after that it came to me and I wrote the letter in five minutes. I told a story about a parents journey through Catholic education. I also read the story at our annual kickoff event. One donor wrote us a check for more than half our goal that night!! When I talked to her after to thank her she said the story inspired her. I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help for the little development offices like mine with part time staff and limited resources!!

Kenita Pierce-Lewis

H.O.P.E. Inc, Georgia

Through Mazarine’s coaching, 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 without her. I recommend Mazarine for any of your fundraising needs!

C. Williams

Development Director

It was fantastic talking with you last week! You are a genius and I was so appreciative of your advice and input. I cannot tell you how much your advice has already benefited me! I did speak with our Maestro/Executive Director, and explained the risk of burnout and how many hours once human being can work without getting frustrated, HE AGREED!!! Again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I look forward to communicating and working with you in the future!

Ruth E. Messick

CFRE, Vice President
Gift Planning and Public Relations

Like so many of my colleagues–we’re running at a thousand miles and hour and want someone to come alongside us to tell us we aren’t crazy, we’re making progress on doing the right things, we are making a difference. Thank you for playing that role for me.

I have 33 years of non-profit fundraising experience and earned my CFRE designation in 1991. Thanks for bringing what you do to the rest of us. Your resources, your presence, your personal stories, the successes and opportunities you share are very meaningful to me. Blessings to you in your important work.
