"Without hesitation, I would always recommend Deanna Ackerman to any
non-profit organization for donor development consulting. If your organization is struggling, she will help you get back on track. And, if your non-profit is doing well, she will always find a way to make it even better."
Stephanie Kirby, Executive Director, Eye Care 4 Kids
