“Through Goettler Associates guidance our campaign significantly increased the community’s awareness of the Hospital. It helped us to make many new friends, and made it much easier to identify and recruit new Foundation board members.”- Bonnie M. Faulkner, Executive Director, Wilson Memorial Hospital Foundation
Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy contracted with Goettler Associates for fundraising consulting services in connection with a $5 million capital campaign to create a permanent endowment to support need-based financial aid at the school. We found that the firm’s expertise and willingness to hold our feet to the fire was invaluable. This campaign was my first experience in a major fundraising effort, so I tried to soak up all of the expertise David had to offer, and I can tell you his experience was vast. My experience working with Goettler Associates was positive in every way; I would not hesitate to contract with them again.- Roger Taylor, Ph.D., President Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy
