My relationship with Chris goes back to my time at Brewer Direct when he was hired as my supervisor. After Chris left Brewer, he worked for the Los Angeles Mission for a couple of years. He eventually ended up at The Midnight Mission, where he needed to build their donor base. In 2020 he engaged us to do a donor acquisition campaign to acquire 3,000 new donors. Even in a typically difficult market and in the middle of a pandemic, with our efforts together we not only met the goal but exceeded it.
I served Tim and The Light House Mission for two years while I was with Grizzard until I left the agency. Shortly after I left, the Mission terminated their relationship with Grizzard to take their fundraising in house. They did that successfully until Tim and I re-connected, and he asked if we could help him with a small donor acquisition campaign. The campaign was so successful that they engaged us year-round.
Eric became the Executive Director of the Great Falls Rescue Mission in 2004, and I served as his account rep during my time at two previous agencies. He had tremendous success, and after he left to become the new Director at Hiway 80 Rescue Mission I again served as his account rep. He is now the Executive Director at Shelter KC, and we are pleased to serve with him once again.
I served Shepherd’s House Ministries in 2014 when I was with a previous agency, but eventually the agency stopped helping them because they were considered “too small” and not cost effective. After launching Delia Martín in 2018, I reconnected with them and helped them with a small donor acquisition campaign that was very successful. Due to the campaign’s success, they engaged us year-round.
Jim Connell, Laura’s dad, started Lexington Rescue Mission, and I worked with him and Laura from day one. My first meeting with the Mission was in an empty building they had just acquired on Limestone Street. That was 20 years ago.
Faith Mission of Elkhart was one of the first Missions I worked with in 1996 when I was at Hemmings, Birkholm & Grizzard. Ross was the Development Director at the time before taking over as Executive Director when his dad, Tobe Swihart, retired. Faith Mission became Delia Martín’s foundational Mission partner when we launched in August of 2018.
