Your work in the community is VITAL and I’m on a mission to help as many nonprofits as I can.

After spending 20+ years as Director of Development for nonprofit organizations, I use proven tools and tactics to help organizations grow, raise more money, and serve more people.

Whether you have a special project/campaign or need more long-term assistance, I can help.

I specialize in fundraising campaign planning and execution, copywriting, marketing, donor communications, donor acquisition/retention, database management, strategic planning, and grant writing.

When I need marketing or fundraising help, hands down I call Mel. I can honestly say she provides exemplary work and off-the-charts results.

Not only is Melinda a great writer, but she has insight and empathy that helped articulate what our supporters wanted and needed.

I have worked with Melinda as both the Director of Development at VNA and as a nonprofit freelancer over the past 20 years. She is multi-talented, with great skills in fundraising, marketing, copywriting, and technology related to all these functions. She is cheerful, committed, passionate, and always a joy to work with!
