‘During the time Catherine worked for us, she organized cultivation parties, supported personal solicitations, created our brochure and general appeals, designed plaques, and worked on final celebration events when the Capital Campaign goal was achieved. She conducted a phonathon for the annual fund, set up our database, and established data entry, gift acknowledgement and reporting protocols. She also launched an endowment campaign with a case for support, solicitor training, and prospect identification. In addition, she set up and received initial pledges to a new planned giving [legacy] society for the Camp.
‘Throughout these multiple successful activities, Catherine has been unfailingly hard-working, creative, and cheerful. She is an effective team member in working with members of the Board’s Development Committee, making useful recommendations to inexperienced Board members, speaking up with confidence and good humor in meetings, and always presenting a broad, long-term vision for our work.’
