The Ostara Group has absolutely been the right choice for our capital campaign. Their team has integrated themselves so smoothly and seamlessly with the staff, board members, and volunteers who have participated in our campaign. They’ve helped us prepare for each phase of the process, often as mentors and experts, and have been there to walk alongside us even in the most challenging times. They are easy to work with, responsive to our needs, and provide tremendous value for their contracted fees.

Even more important than the strong understanding of the complexities of capital campaigns that Kyle brought to his work with us was his ability to communicate and work effectively with a board of directors that had very limited familiarity with the work of raising money for our new facility. Kyle presented information clearly and concisely and helped get everybody on board so that they could make an intelligent and well-substantiated decision about when and how to move forward with our campaign.

Rebecca is a supportive and enthusiastic fundraiser. She has done a fantastic job coaching campaign staff and volunteers to be more confident and effective in their major gift asks. Rebecca helped us create individualized strategies to convert interested individuals into enthusiastic champions and important donors to our capital campaign. Not to mention, she regularly reminds us to consider how to tie our campaign success back to our annual fundraising plan.

Ali has been critical to our campaign success. She does tremendous research to identify funding opportunities, large and small, that are appropriate for our project. Ali took the time to learn about our work, helped us refine our case study, and read all of our materials. She has provided us with thoroughly written grant applications that express our voice. She has been so effective and efficient in her campaign work for us that she writes grants for our general operations now.
