The experience with Crescendo Fundraising has been extremely fulfilling. I appreciate the way Ellen Hongerholt guided us through the process, offering suggestions and solutions to our roadblocks. The entire process was managed with insightful options for methodologies to communicate to potential donors. The “Launch Party” event (where the fundraising need was rolled out to the general population) was well planned and executed. All of the fundraising information was choreographed and professional in presentation. Ellen made the entire process easily managed, having the right volunteers in their most effective roles and the event was appreciated by the attendees. I would not hesitate to use their services again.
