We love Fundraising!
“Fundraising is the gentle art of teaching people the joy of giving.”
Henry A. (Hank) Rosso
This is our favorite definition of fundraising. We believe giving should be a voluntary act that brings joy to the giver and the asker. Giving should never be coerced, expected, or demanded and fundraising should be focused on the donor, not just the donation.
How we Work
“Give someone a fish and they will eat for a day.
Teach someone how to fish and they will eat for a lifetime.”
At Stansbury Consulting, our job is to teach clients how to fish. Our success comes when clients have the knowledge, ability, and confidence to accomplish their goals. We’ve done our job well when clients have the capacity to do what they do best: change lives.
