Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Kathy LeMay is a game-changer. Her counsel on effective fundraising is brilliant and eminently practical. Her unique value proposition: she understands the fundamental underpinnings of why people give, and can translate that into specific action items. I always walked away from our conversations with new insight and 5 new ideas to approach our goals. She always suggests thoughtful, concrete next steps - but also absorbs the client organization's DNA and thinks creatively around it. Kathy is a rare talent who shares her wisdom generously. I recommend her without reservation!

Kathy deeply impacted me in just one consulting session. The agenda was coaching on values-led philanthropy for social change. What I did not expect was how much Kathy helped me tap into my inner story-teller, with utmost authenticity. She drew a connectivity out of me that I hadn't been able to access before, encouraging me to share myself fully within all stakeholder relationships. I recognize and value building these relationships with care and love at the forefront, so her approach immediately resonated and called me forward into my leadership. Thank you Kathy, for helping me to find my voice.

When I shifted over a year ago to a front line fundraising role in a complex global organization, I called on Kathy to coach me as part of my onboarding. She helped me navigate a tricky new set of challenges and set the course for success. We have not looked back since and just closed our most successful fundraising year, increasing donors by over 10% and dollars by a third over last year. She has always helped me find ways to connect my work to the hearts of the donors, ensuring that we appeal to our common humanity, not just the data.
