“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
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
