Three Stories of Transformation

Girl Scouts

The executive director approached The Eight Principles with a desperate plea for help.  The chapter was in serious trouble. The Eight Principles went to work bringing our paradigm-shifting experiences to board and staff.  In less than 120 days, their fundraising results improved by 600%. Every board member was now actively soliciting gifts.

Mind Springs Health

The new CEO set the organization on a firm path.  Now she wanted to build a new hospital. The hospital had an embryonic fundraising program.  The CEO had no fundraising experience. The Eight Principles came to show the path forward to a lasting philanthropic culture.  Staff giving jumped from 15% to 75% and a $34 million hospital became a reality.

Envision Sight and Hearing

The executive reached out to The Eight Principles with his vision. Take a solid yet unremarkable organization and dramatically improve its outreach.  We guided a reorganization of the board, with giving now at 100%. Their donor based tripled and their first endowment campaign was a success. With a lasting philanthropic culture their regional influence continues to grow.
