WhiteRock Consulting Group: Our Team

 

WhiteRock Consulting Group is named after a peak jutting above a narrow tree-lined canyon deep in the Montana Rockies. The entire peak is made of massive outcroppings of white quartz crystal. As geologists, miners and veteran treasure hunters know, white quartz formations are a natural sign of hidden underground gold veins. Any organization that depends on fundraising is always on the lookout for gold. At WhiteRock, we help our clients find it, and mine it. Just like our namesake peak.

For more than a decade, WhiteRock Consulting Group has been providing personalized philanthropy consulting services for higher education and nonprofit clients across the Northwest United States. The professionals at WhiteRock Consulting Group have helped nonprofit and education organizations secure approximately $35 million in gifts and pledges to enhance their programs and facilities. The WhiteRock Group has also helped more than 200 nonprofit and higher education clients strategically plan for their advancement needs and goals, research their development potential, focus their fundraising priorities and build leadership skills and structure and professional staff skills and organizational structure to support successful, sustainable fundraising growth.

Our team of experts takes pride in empowering clients to be successful fundraisers. Who are we? Scroll down and find out.
