10/12/09 - CDM Announces Lowcountry Leap Winner
Charleston, SC (October 12, 2009) – After a thorough review process, Corporate DevelopMint has selected the winner of its first ever Lowcountry Leap. Children in Crisis and the Dorchester Children’s Center of Summerville will received complimentary consulting services from CDM that will help this organization set strategic goals designed to help drive their fundraising initiatives.
“We had a lot of incredible organizations apply to the Lowcountry Leap initiative,” says CDM CEO Stacy Oldfield. “But Children in Crisis was just a perfect fit. Their mission to keep the children in our community safe is commendable and their fundraising team (staff, volunteers, and board) seem ready to take their organization to the next level. We’re hopeful that when we’ve completed the Strategic Goal Setting process, this special organization will be primed to take a giant leap forward.”
As the Executive Director of this organization whose mission is to help children heal from the trauma of abuse, Kay Phillips will be working directly with CDM Senior Consultant, Molly Goodwin, to set strategic goals for Children in Crisis. Upon hearing they had been chosen as the Lowcountry Leap winner, she said, “We are very excited about this opportunity to work with Corporate DevelopMint on our strategic goals for long-term financial sustainability.”
This process is likely to take one to two months to complete and, in the spirit of National Philanthropy Week, Corporate DevelopMint hopes to make the Lowcountry Leap an annual event for years to come.
