“Activist Consulting has been providing Raiser’s Edge database consulting services for us for many years. Our consultant is incredibly responsive and has deep knowledge in the field. We are very happy with our relationship with Activist Consulting!”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Activist Consulting over the last two-and-a-half years, starting with surveying our database and making recommendations to simplify and make more coherent our campaigns, funds, appeals, and constituent code setup. Deanna has also been a great teacher; we’ve often shared my screen, so she can “teach me to fish”. We have also benefitted from using Activist to assist with data entry bubbles and couldn’t be more pleased with the competence and professionalism of the associate we worked with and the accuracy of the work performed. I’m pleased to highly recommend Activist Consulting.”

Chas Dreyfus, Bush School, Seattle

“Our office is more equipped now to handle the thank you letters, thanks to Activist! I really enjoy Deanna’s assistance because she has a real cool, joyful, down-to-earth personality and attitude. I hope we can work together again when the need arises.”

Jack Heemskerk, IT Director, Apostolate for Family Consecration

“In the world of resource development, your database is the foundation of your work. I’ve seen far too many fundraising professionals spend unnecessary time dealing with database management issues, like consistent gift processing, acknowledgement, and reporting, which are best left for highly trained professionals. Partnering with Activist Consulting is cost-effective and will allow you to focus your time and energy on what’s really important – developing the personal relationships necessary to fund your important work.”

“Deanna and the team at Activist Consulting breathed new life into our aging and increasingly more inaccurate Raiser’s Edge database and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Whether it was introducing best practices, training new staff, or cleaning up all of our dirty, mismanaged data, they’ve been able to increase our effectiveness with fundraising and giving our team a needed confidence with prospect research, gift entry, reporting, and the health of our database.”
