“Local Matters engaged Goettler Associates to create a financial development plan to accompany our strategic plan. Goettler delved deep into the process, analyzing trends in our revenue streams and monetizing our programmatic goals so that we could make them a reality. In addition, they engaged wonderfully with our board, energizing the group and providing the skills and confidence necessary to make it possible for everyone to ‘make the ask.'”- Michelle Moskowitz Brown, Executive Director, Local Matters
