Testimonials and Client List

CTC has had the pleasure of working with many worthwhile organizations. We’re grateful for the opportunity to assist them in advancing their missions. Below, you can read what a few of our clients have to say about our services. 

With Charmaine’s help, we’ve had a big impact on our campus in a relatively short amount of time. We couldn’t do everything at once, but Charmaine knew what was needed and when, and we’ve consistently launched initiatives. We’ve had great success in grant proposals and have been fortunate to be awarded every grant we’ve sought. With each decision made, we are careful about being ethical, thorough and transparent. I don’t know what we would have done without Charmaine’s expertise.” ~Barb Cassady, Director of Development, Holy Cross Village at Notre Dame Cassady

Betsy Fulnecky“It is rare to find someone with Charmaine’s level of knowledge and expertise. With a wealth of knowledge, resources, creative ideas, and the ability to manage with great organization, Charmaine has become a lifelong mentor for me in development, fundraising and entrepreneurship. She is truly an expert in philanthropy, and I have been impressed with her ability to teach new and emerging development professionals in a way that meets the individual’s unique learning style as well as their goals. Charmaine is a great asset to our community; I am blessed to have worked with her in my early career, and to continue to work with her as a colleague.” ~Betsy Fulnecky, Philanthropic Gifts Officer, WNIT Public Television

“On a strategic level, I feel that I have a clearer grasp of the basics of development and fundraising, and what will work for an organization of our size and scope. I appreciated the relationship with Charmaine and having someone to bounce ideas off and give feedback.  She was open to covering the topics that I felt were pertinent.” ~Kristine Hilger, Philanthropic Coaching Client
