Amanda White has been working to advance nonprofits and small businesses in Madison for 20 years. Through Amanda White Consulting, Amanda has directly raised millions of dollars to support local nonprofit missions, including coaching over 30 clients to secure over $125 million collectively. Unique from other consultants, Amanda is fortunate to have worked in a variety of capacities within the small business and nonprofit sectors. While fundraising and storytelling is her passion, Amanda also has strong experience in financial forecasting, statewide program development, media relations, and even lobbying. These diverse experiences give Amanda a complete understanding of non-profit management, enabling her to create a fundraising strategy that supports an organization’s overall mission and operations.
I enjoy fund development because a nonprofit’s financial success makes possible our inspiring ideas on how to improve our communities and the lives of our neighbors. Fund raising at its core is all about people believing in other people and a shared passion. Seeing first-hand the generosity and true goodness of other community members is amazing!
My overall goal for every client is to show them that fundraising can be simple. While it does require time and dedication, organizations can absolutely achieve fund development success. I also try to make the entire process positive and even fun.
