Seventeen New Clients in First Two Months
Virtually two nonprofits every week in 2014 join the Hartsook family. Nonprofits from California, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Washington D.C., Australia, Canada and Italy become part of Hartsook's worldwide impact. Hartsook again expects to reach 400 relationships over its 30-month client cycle in 2014.

One fifth of these clients are returning to Hartsook for new and expanded projects. The remainder are new to the Hartsook family.

Why?

First: Hartsook's record for guiding nonprofits to meet and exceed their fundraising goals. Second: Hartsook uses the most up-to-date fundraising research and strategies. Third: The Hartsook Institute for Applied Fundraising Research, along with its Chair in Fundraising at the Lilly School of Philanthropy at Indiana University, places our clients at the center of the newest and best fundraising methods. Finally, Hartsook's team is located in 27 states and around the world, so we understand local needs and demands.
