"I've worked with plenty of consulting firms, and vetted even more, and there is just nobody like CGC! CoachArt wouldn't have been successful on our first Peer-to Peer fundraising campaign without their support. Their strategic guidance, strong messaging, engaging content, and easy to use templates played an integral role in helping us raise over $43,000 from almost entirely new donors outside of our usual donor list. I would strongly recommend CGC to any organization in need of a marketing and fundraising team that will help them engage new potential donors that aren't currently prospects, and surpass their peer-to-peer fundraising goals!" -Greg Harrell-Edge, Executive Director
"CGC was instrumental in piloting our first P2P fundraising campaign. We exceeded our goal and raised over $27K! We couldn’t have accomplished this feat without the help of CGC and look forward to how we can partner further in the future." -Josh Morey, Board of Directors
"Partnering with CGC was the best decision I ever made! They helped us create and manage our first peer-to-peer campaign. We made the decision to postpone our annual fundraising Gala but knew we needed to do something that would allow us to raise funds needed to provide free resources and materials for our K-12 teachers and students. With their support, we raised over $137,000! We could not have done it without them." - Denise M. Gutierrez, President and CEO
"CGC created a very engaging peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. We have raised more this year than last year’s in-person events. The fact that we are this far into the Pandemic, and still managed to raise money with a virtual event, is a home run! Thanks for all of your help in setting this up and making it possible for us to achieve these results! - Kelly Sirimoglu, Director of Marketing
"Literacy Trust has benefited greatly from CGC's expertise in grant writing, fundraising, event planning, board management, and generation of externally-facing materials. They come with a variety of services and an optimistic get things done approach. They brought expertise in strategic fundraising, market analysis, relationship management, and partnership development. I appreciate their willingness to adjust their support based on our organizational needs in efforts to maximize their contributions to our organization. CGC integrated seamlessly into our organizational world with minimal support. It was an easy, affordable and impactful partnership!" - Tiffany Zapico, Executive Director Literacy Trust

"When we had an unexpected departure on our small development and communications team, CGC stepped in for 6 months and helped us keep up with getting grants submitted. They also helped us with prospect research, copy for our newly revamped website, an annual appeal campaign, and an overview deck. They are the all-around solution for small organizations like ours that need a multi-talented team willing to partner closely to keep improving fundraising and communications." -Betsy Blanchard, Development Director
"Over the last year, our partnership with CGC expanded into new ways to help nonprofits raise more and reach more. Their grasp of nonprofit thought leadership and fundraising best practices is top-notch. What is so valuable, is their ability to take complex trends, and strategies and turn them into actionable insights for nonprofits. Whether it’s webinars on donor personas or sharing expertise on nonprofit marketing at our Raise Fundraising conference, they provide high-quality thought leadership on any content topic. Love partnering with CGC and can’t wait to do more!" - Kelly Velasquez-Hague, VP of Content Marketing
"CGC collaborated closely with us to develop an all-encompassing program that addresses the needs of our stakeholders while also building engagement with our mission. They were able to combine existing programs and new ideas into a comprehensive, marketable package which we will use to grow support of the foundation and to further establish ourselves as the charitable arm of our industry. CGC delivers high quality, creative work product and I'm looking forward to working with them more as we bring these new programs to life." - Anastasia Staten, Executive Director
"The CGC team proved to be an outstanding partner for the MVAT Foundation. Their guidance and effort produced concrete fundraising results for our small nonprofit organization and positioned us well for continued success." - James Colbert, Executive Director, MVAT
"I engaged CGC to provide clarity around our organization’s core values and to support our longevity through structured and planned growth. I am happy to say that over the past year EBeauty has grown its brand identity and we saw a significant increase in our fundraising activities. CGC was able to introduce us to advanced software which enabled us to better track and qualify our target audience, as well as, expand our donor base. We look forward to our ongoing partnership with CGC as we look to the future." -Carolyn Callahan Keller, Executive Director and Founder, EBeauty Community
"CGC believes that all aspects of marketing and fundraising must share a common message to be effective.

"I just wanted to tell you that the website is shining! You are doing a GREAT job and have created a site that is unique to our community!! There is nothing out there like this that emphasizes in such a pictorial way what our organization has accomplished!" - Monte Skall, Executive Director, NatCapLyme
"It was such a pleasure to work with CGC. Their sense of professionalism and production-savvy made the experience seamless because they anticipated and captured a diverse array of content. They also utilized high-quality audio, lighting and video equipment, which enhanced the experience. The CGC team was proactive and solutions-oriented. If the opportunity presents itself, I would work with CGC again." - DeNora Getachew, Campaign Manager & Legislative Counsel Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law
"I was able to work with CGC recently and was quite pleased with our product and results. They helped break the project into manageable and meaningful tasks. The CGC staff were personable and professional, and I always felt like our project was their top priority. I plan to work with CGC in the future because of the quality of their work and the cost effectiveness of our collaboration." - Allan Pelletier, Superintendent/Principal, Ballard School District
"It was a breeze to work with CGC! Their staff was extremely helpful - from listening to our messaging challenges during the initial interview to creating a social media campaign that really tied it all together. Their work helped us realize our strengths and gaps in social media messaging as well as creative ways to improve social media visibility. During our six month campaign, they were always available and willing to provide constructive criticism, discuss ideas, and develop solutions." - Courtnie Thurston, Programs Assistant
