It’s simple, really: Settle for less than incredible, or work with Shanon. She guided us through our first-ever donor facing fundraising event. The end result was nothing short of phenomenal: no one could believe it was our first, because the evening was so seamlessly elegant and meaningful. Shanon was perfectly in tune with our vision and values. She listened to us, she helped us avoid pitfalls, and her deep knowledge of how fundraising and communications are different for a nonprofit really set her apart from others in her field. (That, and she’s like this magical spice for your organization that makes everything you do better.)

Amazing. That’s what fundraising life has felt like since we started working with Shanon. Coming from a small nonprofit shop, one of the biggest challenges we face is where to put our limited resources. Shanon has been critical to keeping us focused on the big picture fundraising strategy while also helping to navigate the nuances of our short-term activities. There has not been one fundraising question, issue, challenge that she has not – brilliantly – helped us to face. Fundraising life without Shanon? Unimaginable!”
– Laura Collins, Development Director
Shanon is a ROCKSTAR. We could not have pulled our event off without her. I can’t even put into words how thankful all of us at our organization are to have Shanon’s support with this event. She is so incredibly talented, knowledgeable, and passionate. Plus, she’s been an amazing teacher throughout this process!
– Juliana Albano, Community Engagement Associate
By motivating our board, empowering our staff, tightening our messaging, and crafting a simple yet emotional way to tell our story throughout that night, Shanon’s expertise helped us hone in on the right combination of event elements that worked for us and resulted in Zeno’s most successful annual fundraiser to date. Plus, working with Shanon is fabulously fun – her support and enthusiasm turns any fundraising project into a true delight!
– Erin Tierney, Development Manager
Shanon was BEYOND great. I learned a ton, plus she was so enthusiastic and knowledgable. I left her presentation feeling totally encouraged and ready to fundraise my heart out!

I have been a fundraising professional for more than 25 years and have never been so inspired. Thank you for opening the doors, and my eyes, to new ways of thinking!

Amazing! I walked away with so many great ideas. I loved her real-world examples. Hands down, one of the best presentations I’ve ever attended!

Shanon’s talk was so chock-full of fabulous ideas, I’m almost afraid to share them with my boss because I’m not sure I could get them all implemented quickly enough. She was incredible!
