Capital and Program Campaigns

“I came to MPW Strategies when my school was in serious need of raising funds for a new building. Within under a year, we went from no fundraising to raising just shy of $16M. I felt comfortable and confident in taking the campaign plan we had written together and moved it forward with MPW Strategies help. The really joyous thing about hiring MPW Strategies is that the impact of having a new building for our school will be felt within three years.”

Fundraising Assessments, Plans, and Building Operations (Including Major Gifts)

MPW Strategies and Matt Wasserman’s incredible coaching and insight to fundraising have been invaluable to my development career. He was very helpful in providing direction to evaluate our major gift opportunities, and strategies for prioritizing donors to engage, and connecting with them in a meaningful way. The tools he has provided have enabled me to more confidently and effectively engage with donors.”

Matt Wasserman’s guidance was instrumental in helping Ascanio’s Purse determine our overall campaign strategy and approach for engaging with donors. Through his hands-on thoughtful approach, we were able to meet and exceed our initial goal. He always made himself available, and was instrumental in finding solutions to overcome some of our biggest fundraising hurdles”.

Strategy and General Consulting 

“Getting faculty and staff to understand the importance of fundraising is one of the competencies we focus on in our university leadership program. As a graduate of our Excellence in Leadership program, Matt agreed to run an interactive workshop each year that informs faculty and staff about their role in fundraising. His authenticity and knowledge about this area helped motivate and encourage our group to get involved. Giving leadership the tools and confidence to assist in the fundraising process is key.”

Building a Culture of Philanthropy


MPW Strategies really helped get our board “on board” with the direction we need to take on fundraising as we enter a new chapter in the life of the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame. He motivated us to focus on how we can build the community support needed to ensure our organization’s future viability. One amazing result was that just one week after the training one of our long-term board members presented us a check for $10,000 to jumpstart our fundraising campaign! John Pepperdine has also provided ongoing advice and recommendations as we’ve worked on building our donor database and develop email appeals.”
