I cannot thank you enough--I truly cannot--for you seizing this opportunity for us and for your fundraising guidance and help. The notes to several donation entries have been "great appeal"  and "what a great email."  Truly the touch of a master fundraiser.  

The appeal went out at about 12:15.  Since then, we've had over 75 donations and they range from $5 to $1,000--with A LOT AROUND $50-100.  In fact, we've received three $1,000 gifts and one $800 gift. One of the donors who donated $1,000 was a former board member.  I'm absolutely blown away by the response, the effectiveness and the donations coming in every 5-10 seconds.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!  Oh please let me write a recommendation for your fundraising skills and advice!!!!

"Tim Crum was the featured speaker for a special half-day workshop on fundraising held as part of our 2012 Michigan Partnership for Animal Welfare Conference.  Attendees raved about his presentation skills and content, saying that “this workshop alone was worth the price of admission” and “took more notes than I ever have at a conference”.  We will definitely be inviting Mr. Crum back as a speaker for future conferences and can positively attest to his knowledge, presentation skills and ability to engage his audiences."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Tim Crum and the Animal Shelter Fundraising team on several projects including a Building Planning Study and Feasibility Study. The information gathered through these studies has been invaluable to the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society.  I have been most impressed with Tim's professionalism and integrity. He has represented our organization well when speaking with board members, donors and community leaders.  I highly recommend Animal Shelter Fundraising and Tim Crum. Tim is the only consultant I know of whose background includes working in animal shelters and in fundraising. This unique combination is invaluable to those of us in the animal welfare industry."
