We are in the final stages of raising funds for a large capital campaign for the Washington Chapter of ADPhi. This has been a four-year effort to successfully raise $5 million. To put it bluntly, this would not have been possible without the professional guidance and expertise of Pennington & Company and our initial consultant, Aaron Forehand. Simultaneously, our alumni relations consultant, Ginny Brown, focused on improving our alumni relations and fostering mailings to alumni.
Pennington worked diligently to update our email and physical mailing lists by noting bad or returned addresses, making corrections, and seeking out lost alumni. This further included updating records of pledges made and payments on those commitments and following up with running tallies of funds received and outstanding. We plan to continue the newsletter and database upkeep after completion of the project.
In all cases, Aaron and Ginny were on hand to advise us on best practices and strategies for success based on their extensive experience from working with numerous fraternities and sororities nationally. They operated as our continual consultants, offering advice, sharing ideas, and leading us to success. We could not have conducted this campaign without their highly professional consulting and collaborative teamwork. They were and continue to be outstanding!
