Donald P. Souhrada
President and CEO
The creative solutions that Don Souhrada offers his clients draw on his 30 years of experience working with a broad range of nonprofit organizations. He has worked for major public universities, private universities large and small, a large membership association and for two of the nation’s top hospitals.
Prior to joining TW&B, Don served as Director of Major Gifts for the University of Chicago Medical Center and most recently as Director of Development for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago where he developed RIC’s grateful patient fundraising program.
Don’s breadth of experience has honed his skills working directly with donors as a frontline fundraiser and as a manager of development officers. He also brings extensive experience using wealth screening tools to identify actionable major gift prospects and build individual giving programs.
His collective experiences, whether working with organizations raising a few million dollars or a few hundred million dollars, provide his clients a fresh outlook on their fundraising challenges. The specific consulting services Don delivers include annual fund and development assessments, feasibility studies and capital campaigns, major gift program development, case development, wealth screening and analytics.
His recent clients are as varied as Don’s background and include an organization that builds barrier-free housing for people with disabilities, a patient-advocacy organization, a library and a museum. Respectively, they are the Over the Rainbow Association, National PKU Alliance, Lake Bluff Public Library and Museum of Nebraska Art.
Don earned a Bachelor of Science in journalism and public relations from the University of Iowa. He and his wife Jenny live in Evanston, Illinois.
