Standing out in the market is essential.

I help my clients create innovative marketing campaigns, bespoke events, and special donor benefits — all within tight budget constraints so the majority of donations go to programming, not the solicitation of gifts.

You need the right people on the team to win.

I guide my clients in a process of clearly defining roles and goals for the Board of Directors — identifying the candidates, creating a stewardship plan, and offering an invitation onto the board.

Admin matters.

There is a crucial administrative component that comes with development — tax receipts, thank you notes, CRM, etc. I work with organizations to create clear job descriptions, hire employees, and build infrastructure to support the needs of the organization and enable measured growth.

Custom is key.

Every organization is unique and comprised of individuals. I do not believe that one size fits all. I tailor my approach to the unique challenges, timelines and goals of every organization I work with.

Let’s get started.

Send me a note and let’s set a time to talk. I bill by the hour or by the project depending on your needs and the scope of work. I only take on clients that I believe I can have a lasting positive impact on.

She is the ultimate cheerleader in my corner, supporting me along the way, and celebrating with me when we make great things happen. I’m in a whole new state of mind from where I was when we started working together. I came to her feeling like I was lost and drowning. Now, I feel peaceful, expansive, and I’m ready to keep building. She is so skilled at brainstorming with me, while really listening and taking into account the whole person, not just a business owner.

“My consulting session with Theresa Farrell was incredibly productive and inspiring. I was completely blocked on how to propel my business model and vision forward. I knew where I wanted to go but was missing elements and was scattered.

Theresa helped me make a huge shift by tweaking things that were already in place. This was specifically a fundraising approach that would allow me to produce my dream vision — centered around a creative marketing approach I would have never thought of. I now have a tangible action list connected to a marketing plan that I can finally get behind and run with!

Theresa is very passionate about what she does. She has walked the walk and has the tools and knowledge to guide her clients toward massive success.

I am truly grateful!”

Working with Theresa has been a great blessing both for the organization that I direct, and for me personally as a leader. Theresa’s work encourages one to return to the fundamentals in life and business – things that are easy to lose track of amidst the hustle of everyday life. What is important to you? What are your aspirations? What is your vision for your organization? Once one’s mind is focused on this type of thinking, Theresa then helps one to turn that vision into reality starting from the inside out. She is an enabler in the best sense of the word.
