One Extra Degree
Makes All The Difference
"At 211 degrees water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive.”
"If You Are Looking For Someone Who Can Guide Your Development Programs To The Highest Level Of Sincere Philanthropy, Then Look No Further."

One Extra Degree Is All It Takes To Make A Difference.
Sam Parker and Mac Anderson inspired my company name as well as how I approach fundraising for charity. They wrote a book called “212—The Extra Degree.” The concept is simple: that one extra degree makes all the difference between whether you have a so-so development program or a really, really great program that the industry talks about, and that people read about. The kind of charity fundraising program that colleagues call you about and ask, “How in the world did you do that?"
What allows me to help organizations like yours reach unprecedented levels of success is the bone-deep belief that every organization — including yours — can attract transformative and amazing gifts. It takes focused hard work and, most importantly, planning. The real secret is making sure those plans get implemented. That’s where I come in. As your partner, I’ll help you go from good to great!
I partner with not-for-profit organizations to build sustainable strategies and programs that raise more money. Over the last 25 years, I've helped raise more than $100 million for not-for-profit organizations like PeaceHealth, Sisters of Charity, Inova Health System, Banner Health System, Sun Health, and several smaller not-for-profits across the United States.
