      • Tripled the appeal return for a nonprofit, going from $3,000 to $16,000
      • 1,000 new mailing list names for another nonprofit due to my advice,
      • Over $40,000 in new sponsorships for a NYC Catholic school and
      • Over $35,000 for a Californian senior services nonprofit appeal, despite starting later and more competition in the market.
