The country’s sixty thousand nonprofit social services agencies respond to a vast array of missions, and provide a remarkable network of valuable programs and services. Some programs are innovative and entrepreneurial, such as the job training and placement of Goodwill Industries’ clients. Other agencies fulfill a simple but vital mission, such as the food, clothing and shelter provided by the Salvation Army, the Red Cross and others.
“In fund raising, volunteer committees need a professional partner who knows how and when to guide, and how and when to push. Goettler Associates certainly was that partner. They greatly helped our transition from fund raising to development.”- Marcia Ferguson, Executive Director, Parma Hospital Health Care 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
