Your organization is doing amazing work. It’s time to make sure it’s well funded!
My passion is helping organizations develop fundraising strategies, plans and campaigns that connect with donors’ hearts, minds, and wallets. I take a data and research-based approach in my consulting and work to creatively solve problems inside fundraising programs.
To develop fundraising strategies and plans, I work with organizations to:
- Conduct a top-to-bottom fundraising program audit
- Create and analyze donor surveys and one-to-one donor interviews
- Identify messaging and stories that resonate with donors
- Identify quick wins for the organization
- Develop long-term strategies to help the organization reach its biggest goals
- Create operationalized fundraising plans that staff can implement immediately

Working with Lockshin Consulting was a great experience. Vanessa was accessible and a pleasure to work with. She took the time needed to understand our need and created a robust fund development strategy that we are now fully utilizing. She also worked with us to create a relevant and comprehensive communication plan to effectively support our fund development strategy. Thank you Vanessa for your work.
I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside Vanessa on multiple projects this year. I am continuously blown away by her patience, wisdom and warmth when working as part of a team. If you're an organization looking to hire a consultant who exudes professionalism and integrity, Vanessa is the one to call.

- Create remarkable fundraising campaigns for specific initiatives or year-end fundraising
