“A HUGE and ringing endorsement for Goettler Associates. The firm directed the Library’s very successful capital campaign 10 years ago. After a competitive vetting process, we selected them again to do work this year. They just completed a campaign planning study for us for a major gift/endowment campaign.

The community leaders he interviewed had good feedback on his professionalism.”
