what CLIENTS SAY ABOUT blue north
Approximately six years ago, Blue North became engaged with us as we needed a plan for us to substantially increase our fundraising results with our annual fund. Blue North created a plan that addressed both areas of department restructure as well as implementing best practices with our mass, mid and major level donor services. In conclusion, we saw a substantial increase in our annual fund that resulted in approximately $6 million of growth coming from all of the different levels of donor services: mass, mid and major.
Pete Knibbe, VP of Donor Engagement/Advancement, Bethany Christian Services
At The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, we started working with Blue North as our partner on both our Annual and Leadership Giving portfolios mid-2015. I have been incredibly impressed by Blue North’s mix of strategic thinking, deep tactical experience, and practical advice on our business. They have added real value to the business.
Laura Syron, Vice President, Community Programs, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation
Over the past two years, Blue North has helped lead Prostate Cancer Canada to new heights with our online fundraising and engagement programs. They have consistently provided strategic leadership and executional support for a number of key programs, helping us launch new initiatives and strengthen existing ones. I value their partnership and would recommend them to any organization who is serious about growing their online fundraising.
