Between 2005 and 2007, RIchard Aldag was our organization's "grants virtuoso." Beginning with us at a time when we had limited in-house staff (2 FTEs and no development professionals), he served as a consultant, focusing on researching and securing grant funding and taking care of the reporting requirements for our ongoing support.
The results were phenomenal. He was the key player in our successful efforts to raise more than $2 million in foundation and government support for our successful $13.5 million capital campaign, and to double our annual grant funding to a six figure level. We got rave reviews from our funders for the reports he prepared, and when we began to build our own development department he worked seamlessly with our new staff people, ensuring the continuing growth and professionalization of the efforts he put into motion.
I would look forward to working with Richard in any circumstance.
