Nonprofit Work

Over the course of my career in fundraising, I’ve had the privilege of working with dozens of nonprofits in various capacities, both as a contractor for RBW Strategy and separately as a freelancer. I have supported these organizations with grant writing, crowdfunding, communications, social media and digital marketing, strategic planning, coaching, and other fundraising services. The organizations below provide a good sampling of the kinds of nonprofits that I have worked with:
