Training & Retreats

Effective fundraising is an art and a science……and a team sport. It’s true. For any organization seeking to raise more money, the staff, Board and volunteers need to be clear, confident, equipped and rowing in the same direction.

At HT & CO., we offer fun, experiential and content-rich trainings and retreats for your staff, your Board, or both. Customized to your unique needs, we invigorate your staff and Board team with new skills and a fresh outlook on fundraising. Your staff and Board will leave inspired, empowered and ready to engage donors in new and meaningful ways

Among our many offerings is the Major Gifts Launch Pad. Co-created with Jennifer Weber of Cornerstone Consulting, the Launch Pad is a hands-on training series for organizations eager to build an effective major gifts program, or strengthen the one they have.

Interim Leadership

I have had the extreme pleasure of partnering with Heidi during a critical time for our national organization. Heidi made it possible for me as an Executive Director, without a development team, to breath. She helped us focus our energies on growth, established a clear path to achieve that, and was a constant and supportive thought partner. Heidi balanced thoughtful advice and guidance with concrete work to help jumpstart initiatives that we could not have accomplished without her expertise. Working with Heidi included lots of laughter, thoughtful processing to get to proactive strategies, and meaningful analysis that lead us to lasting results. I recommend Heidi wholeheartedly to any organization experiencing leadership transitions and those ready to evolve your development strategies.

Heidi did a terrific job leading us up to and through our annual Foundation Board retreat. It really was very well done, one of the best retreats we’ve had during my 16 years at NKC. Heidi’s concrete examples, fun interactive experiences, and specific tips as to how to be successful in major gifts fundraising made everyone feel more competent. I would highly recommend her for retreat planning, training and facilitation!

Hello! Thank you for visiting HT & CO.!

After 13 years practicing the art and science of raising money, I have sunset my consulting work to pursue another long-held professional interest: becoming a real estate broker!

THANK YOU to each and every one of the incredible non-profit organizations I’ve had to honor to work with - all 178 of you! I am grateful for your loyalty and partnership over the years and will continue to support causes I care about for years to come.

I am thrilled to now be a full-time real estate broker working with buyers and sellers throughout the Puget Sound. You can find me and my team at Ensemble, a cooperative brokerage of real estate professionals based in Seattle. I chose Ensemble because their ethos and values are an extension of my own. We are a close, community-minded team committed to providing unmatched value and service for our clients.

I remain very active in the non-profit community. It would be my pleasure to refer you to other fundraising consultants and resources.

Please reach out any time! I would love to hear from you!

With deep appreciation,
Heidi Thomson-Daly
