Event Strategy

Events are incredible opportunities to galvanize support for your mission. They’re precious one-time chances to cultivate new prospects, inspire current donors to give more, garner corporate support, and strengthen your brand awareness in the community.

Yet, fundraising events are famous for having a poor return-on-investment. At HT & CO. we specialize in optimizing events, ensuring your event is a high-performing platform that advances your short and long-term fundraising goals.

We’re behind some of the most unique, successful, high ROI nonprofit events in the Seattle area (note: we provide event strategy no matter where you’re located!). Whether you’ve had the same event for a decade or are starting from scratch, let’s reboot your event(s) and maximize its full potential. Whether it’s a thousand people at a gala, an intimate stewardship event, or something in between, we’ll help you build a purposeful and strategic event that is mission-centered, unforgettable, and creates the momentum you need. Together we’ll co-create a ripple of philanthropic support that lasts well beyond the final applause.

Interim Leadership

Training & Retreats

Heidi served on my senior leadership team as Interim Chief Development Officer during a critical time at BGCKC. She assessed the ROI of our fundraising program, managed and inspired a 12+ fundraising team, led major gifts training for our Board, all while supporting me in numerous ways. She brought clarity, expertise, humor and her infamous ‘pep’ when we needed it most. I would highly recommend Heidi to any organization seeking to strengthen their fundraising program.

Heidi served as Interim Development Director at EarthCorps. Heidi is organized, enthusiastic, efficient, and effective. She kept us focused and on track to meet our goals. She helped us reimagine our largest fundraiser which generated record revenue. I could not imagine having gone through a development director transition without Heidi. She is fabulous!
