References and recommendations offer Crescendo’s best advertising. Confident and productive volunteer

leaders are the key to successful campaigns. Most clients and their volunteer base do not have the time or

expertise to manage the entire process. That is where Crescendo comes in. We help ensure all the campaign

elements are developed and the process is productive, enjoyable and rewarding.

We suggest contacting past volunteer leaders regarding our planning, process, management, training, and the administrative styles of our consultants. Our references will share the commitment we bring to all fundraising projects.
