Together with a powerful range of first hand experiences, Jeff has a diverse portfolio of skills and insights to line up fundraising needs with technology that actually produces tailored outcomes that work. He simply gets it – what challenges fundraisers face, the goals they are trying to achieve, the importance of respecting supporters, and many of the methodologies being deployed to serve sophisticated fundraising strategies to meet ever-increasing demands from all directions. All this within limited budgets and resources.
The JMG Solutions’ team is here to serve, advise, empower and direct ways for you to get the most out of your database, information and technology. In addition to training, the consultants at JMG Solutions have performed project management, data conversions, database cleanups, procedure documentation, donation processing recommendations and process improvement. All this to serve major gifts, capital campaigns, prospect research, alumni, social media, direct mail, special events and online fundraising activities.
Our unique people and nonprofit skills are backed by highly trained and knowledgeable technicians who are also very adept at the programming needed to transition data files into Raiser’s Edge. Through experiences with other Canadian nonprofits, we have a number of invaluable tips and tricks to share with you. All this is done within current Canadian regulations, guidelines and best practices. Many of these are similar to those followed in other countries.
