A Note of Thanks

During this 'Stay at Home' order time amidst COVID-19, it has allowed me time to fondly revisit my experiences. I have been reflecting with gratitude and thanks for the thousands of volunteers and donors with whom Crescendo has worked with over the past 22 years  --  with my company's original partner, Laura Eddy, to my advisor and support team of the last five years (a few of whom are pictured here). 

The one constant in more than 40 campaigns of memories has been the generous, inspiring and dedicated volunteers with whom we have served, while helping fundraise for aquatic centers and auditoriums in the heart of Iowa to managing campaigns for municipal expansions and start-ups in Wisconsin and Minnesota. It has been a great joy helping create and implement exciting capital campaign management plans for you. Thank you for inviting us into your beautiful communities and missions, and for allowing us to serve YOU -- and for getting to know you, my friends -- as it is the best part of what we do!

We are creating new virtual ways of communicating with our clients and donors during these times, and as we have for the past 22 years, we will continue to successfully meet our campaign goals. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Stay safe and well my friends!

All the best,

Ellen Hongerholt
