Your team is unique, with distinct strengths, experiences, and opportunities to grow. Perhaps your development shop needs to regain focus on getting out the door to fundraise, increase its retention of valuable employees, or help managers strengthen skills that motivate high performance.

KDD Philanthropy is ready to partner with you to bring the Customized Bootcamp to your shop, no matter your location or needs. Options and services include:

Kathy Drucquer Duff’s unique experience across healthcare, higher education (private and public), and non-profit organizations allows her to assess the opportunities within each environment and provide trainings on a wide range of areas.

KDD Philanthropy is one of the few consulting firms that regularly builds practical exercises, real-life scenarios, and tailored role plays into trainings – allowing participants to take away practical, ready-to-implement tools for their work. Content will be customized specifically to your team.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kathy as a consultant, colleague and now as a client at City of Hope. In the past five years I have routinely been witness to and benefited from her amazing leadership, coaching and command of the fundraising continuum. Kathy is an incredible leader whose passion for the field of philanthropy comes out in every occasion. As a coach, Kathy’s keen listening and communication skills provide her with an innate ability to identify core obstacles that hold her clients back from becoming their very best. The team that Kathy has worked with at City of Hope have benefited tremendously in their personal and professional lives through her caring but direct counsel. Having worked with many fundraising training consultants I can honestly say that I have found none better than Kathy. Her focus on the core elements of effective fundraising principals, balancing the art and science and ability to demystify the key elements of success in our profession is a true gift. I highly recommend KDD Philanthropy for anyone looking to hire a best-in-class fundraising trainer or coach to improve focus and results.” — Nathan Chappell, MBA, MNA, CFRE, Senior Vice President, Advancement Operations and Giving Campaigns, City of Hope
