At Consult Carney, our experience spans healthcare, human services and faith-based organizations. Here are some examples of fundraising and marketing programs that succeeded because we connected with donors on an emotional level with stories of how donors make a difference for people in need:

Showing donors the power of legacy giving: We help guide donors who want to leave a legacy through their estates, so their philanthropy will benefit future generations

Leveraging donor gratitude for the visionary founder of this Catholic organization that develops original faith-sharing programs was key to launching a formal planned giving program: Naming the Legacy Society after the founder gave major donors the opportunity to pledge estate gifts, thereby passing the gift of faith to their children. Said one long-time donor:

This organization is an increasingly relevant voice, as we search to live out our faith in an extremely challenging world. It meets people where they are and invites them to grow in their faith.

Healing patients fueled passion for this New Jersey hospital capital campaign for a new breast center. Here’s what one woman said:

I have just completed radiation treatments for breast cancer at Pascack Valley Hospital. What would have been a fearful, stressful time in my life turned out to be just the opposite. I was always treated with discretion and in a friendly, professional manner.

Sharing faith inspires sharing wealth: When unthinkable tragedy devastates someone, the power of prayer and forgiveness learned in faith-building programs is often the only way to begin healing.

Gifts to a RENEW International from year-end direct mail appeals increased sharply thanks to testimonials like this:

It was my small Christian community that got me through the tragic killing of my son. I was angry with everyone – even God. Members of my community would stop by and visit and pray with us. They helped start the healing process and supported our family. Eventually I was able to let go and forgive the killer.

Corporate foundations awarded grants to The Red Cross to help people like this client who lost almost everything in a disaster:

It was 11:30 PM when one of the biggest fires I have ever seen ripped through our 25-unit apartment building… All of my hard work, labor and precious belongings were destroyed that night… and the anxiety kicked in. But the Red Cross did not leave us in the cold! We were all given clothing, stipends and hotel vouchers.
