WHO AM I?

I’m Heather, and my focus is exclusively helping charities raise money from companies. With my business degree and countless corporate fundraising meetings under my belt, I can help you maximize your time and get focused on what works. I can make sure you are having more conversations with more companies, and the RIGHT conversations, so you can convert these conversations into more money for your charity.

Each client relationship with BridgeRaise is unique. Comprehensive consulting package starting at $10,000 include:

  • Personalized organizational assessment and workplan development
  • Building of customized material as needed to achieve identified goal
  • Prospect briefings and strategies to support your corporate pipeline growth

If you are super focused and just need prospect briefings, strategic prospect briefing bundles start at $2,500. These are my THING!

You can go to a regular prospect research person and receive the “normal” background stuff. BUT if you want strategic corporate briefings, then BridgeRaise is the answer.

We develop corporate briefings and strategy that focuses on business alignment, identifying creative ways to move forward, and that recognizes that corporate fundraising is more than knowing the community investment priorities.

I’ve been working with fundraisers just like you, and this is what they’ve said:

“Heather always has your organization’s back! We recently engaged Heather and her team to develop a corporate sponsorship strategy for our signature event at Women’s College Hospital Foundation, and to provide one-on-one sponsorship coaching to a senior leader. Heather delivered such a thoughtful, custom, and easily implementable plan. Working with her was truly empowering and fun. The icing on the cake has been her continued engagement and surprise & delight stewardship towards our organization and team. I would highly recommend Bridgeraise!”

Alex had a corporate prospect when Heather joined them to coach Alex, as well as the Executive Director and Board Director on strategy and messaging and helped build the proposal so that they felt confident that what they were proposing fit for both organizations. Heather was persistent in keeping the team focused on the repeated follow up until they closed over $100K in support from a local company.

Alex: “This was our largest corporate gift to date and has created a wonderful partnership with local business that aligns with our cause. What I love about Heather is that she is honest and direct while always making you feel like she is in your corner!”

Campaign Manager, Peterborough Humane Society

“Heather’s savvy and focus has been integral to keeping our team on-track to building great relationships with partners. Implementing innovative (and simple!) strategies has made a big difference. For example, we enriched a relationship by inviting a partner to collaborate on identifying ways to increase program survey responses and have opened doorways to at least one major prospect on Twitter (yes, TWITTER!). Heather’s guidance is getting us closer to our corporate fundraising goals while building our team’s expertise significantly.”
