It is with great pleasure that we write this letter in support of your consultant and his work on behalf of James D Klote & Associates. We had the opportunity to work closely with him during the fall of 2015 and the winter of 2016 on the Central Lutheran School Capital Campaign Committee. He made an instant connection with us as well as the school staff and volunteers. We feel very fortunate that this consultant was assigned to our school for our capital campaign.
The consultant provided essential leadership and guidance to our team. Throughout his time in New Haven, he worked diligently to keep our progress focused and on pace. An excellent planner, his work was extremely detailed and well researched.
The most impressive aspect of his work was his demeanor with our volunteers. He was able to present information on fundraising techniques with a confident presence and a great sense of humor, while maintaining a positive spiritual environment.
The consultant’s work during the assessment period through the advance stage of the campaign was instrumental in allowing us to enter our kickoff on a high note. Volunteers that were willing to commit to his teachings and guidance found great success.
On a personal note, we thoroughly enjoyed having the consultant as part of our team. His demeanor made many days easier for us as we struggled to recruit and excite volunteers. We will look back on his time in our school with much admiration and gratitude. His blunt honesty and professional approach to fundraising reflect the services we hoped to receive from Klote & Associates.
We look forward to continuing our work with the consultant and your company as advisors in the months and years ahead as we begin our building project.
