Client Testimonials

What our clients are saying about us…

Molly Philosophos
Director of Development, Hephzibah Children’s Association:

“Working with Ter Molen Watkins & Brandt on our Planned and Major Giving Program was a wonderful experience. Clyde and Heidi brought an incredible wealth of knowledge to our project. They helped us strengthen Hephzibah’s existing Planned and Major Giving program, and developed a detailed road map for building an endowment fund. For a reasonable price, the team crystallized a strategy to help Hephzibah be successful. Ter Molen Watkins & Brandt made us feel like a top priority, which I suspect they do for all of their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance regarding development.”

David Parkyn
President, North Park University:

“From the very first day on the job, our consultants at Ter Molen Watkins & Brandt have been integral to our efforts. They began by preparing our development team for a challenging campaign and together we have crafted and implemented an initial fundraising strategy that has been very successful, despite the economy. I count on their thoughtful guidance, wise counsel and accomplished experience at each step of campaign planning and implementation.”

Amy Johnson
Chair, Women’s Fund of Greater Milwaukee:

“Ter Molen Watkins & Brandt’s assessment of our fundraising activities was ‘right on the money’. Assembling our Annual Fund team helped to boost the board’s fundraising comfort level and also bring in additional people from the community to the Women’s Fund. Your plan gave our Executive Director and Board a solid map to follow.”

Sheila M. Manion
Director of Development and Campaign, Saint Louis Art Museum:

“TW&B has helped us throughout our campaign to keep thinking ahead, even as they work on the day-to-day, helping us develop effective communication and prospect strategies.”

Debra L. Schlies
Director of Development, Chicago Lighthouse:

“Our partnership with TW&B on the $17M Bold Visions Campaign guided our planning and strategies, from creating staff and volunteer structures to identifying major gift prospects. Having an objective point of view on our strengths and weaknesses allowed us to focus our efforts on the activities that led to our ultimate success. TW&B then provided us with a post-campaign roadmap for the future, and the Lighthouse is now building upon the new relationships and the accomplishments of Bold Visions.”

Thomas Finnegan
Executive Director, Kaleidoscope, Inc.

“It began with a chat over lunch about the long road ahead and how we could manage to attain our goals. Together, we designed a viable development office and plan, and our principal consultant was there to assist us with any and every step along the way. Kaleidoscope would not have progressed to where it is without TW&B. Today we have the foundation to build sustainable streams of contributed revenue and to help the kids we serve live better lives. TW&B helped make that happen.”
