Testimonials & Client List

I’ve had the pleasure of working with many worthwhile organizations. I’m grateful for the opportunity to assist them in advancing their missions. Below, you can read what a few of my clients have to say about working with me.

Barb Cassady, Development Director at Holy Cross Village

With Charmaine's help, we have had a big impact on our campus in a relatively short amount of time. We couldn't do everything at once, but Charmaine knew what was needed and when, and we have consistently launched initiatives. We have had great success in grant proposals and have been fortunate to be awarded every grant we have sought. With each decision made, we are careful about being ethical, thorough and transparent. I don't know what we would have done without Charmaine's expertise.

Betsy Fulnecky, Philanthropic Officer

It is rare to find someone with Charmaine’s level of knowledge and expertise. With a wealth of knowledge, resources, creative ideas, and the ability to manage with great organization, Charmaine has become a lifelong mentor for me in development, fundraising and entrepreneurship. She is truly an expert in philanthropy, and I have been impressed with her ability to teach new and emerging development professionals in a way that meets the individual's unique learning style as well as their goals. Charmaine is a great asset to our community; I am blessed to have worked with her in my early career, and to continue to work with her as a colleague

Kristine Hilger, Philanthropic Coaching Client

On a strategic level, I feel that I have a clearer grasp of the basics of development and fundraising, and what will work for an organization of our size and scope. I appreciated the relationship with Charmaine and having someone to bounce ideas off and give feedback. She was open to covering the topics that I felt were pertinent.

Strategic Planning Client

We gained clarity of purpose with our mission, with concrete steps and a plan to focus on. I appreciated Charmaine's focus and calmness as she led us through the process
