“A VISION WITHOUT STRATEGY REMAINS AN ILLUSION”
Businesses often lean on outside assistance to help them build strategy and plan for the future. So many times, the help they seek brings one set of tools and retro-fits those tools to meet the client’s needs. And many times they fail. Write Connections works closely with our clients to determine the actual need and build a path together to achieve it.

OUR STRATEGY SERVICES
Fundraising is a science and a craft. It takes a professional who is a statistician, storyteller, and socially savvy to be successful in this field.
Board Development & Team Building
Whether with your board or your office team, take space away from your regular meetings and work to find your strengths and how to use them to support your mission.
Where do you want to go? Write Connections can help you find the answer to that question and map out a path to get there.
Need help wrapping your head around the big-picture of your fundraising efforts? Spend some time with Jess Koscher, a certified fundraising executive with more than 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector.

Jess and the team at Write Connections are fantastic to work with. Their enthusiasm and the creative approach they took in launching our new customer service website was exactly what we needed. Our web traffic and member registration and has far exceeded our expectations. Couldn’t have done it without them. When it comes time for our next project, we will be using the team at Write Connections.

Jess did an excellent job gathering information prior to the meeting and was well prepared to lead our team throughout the day. She challenged our group to think outside the box and to delve deeper into the question of “what if”. By the end of the day, many things were accomplished: newer board members had a clearer understanding of the HSEC and their mission; the Executive Director’s job was more well-defined and an outline for a strategic plan was formulated. Her leadership skills allowed us to move through a packed agenda at a manageable pace, resulting in an excellent outcome. Speaking from the point of view of a non-profit agency, we would highly recommend Jess and Write Connections for your next strategic planning retreat!

Jess is an amazing person to work with. Given the breadth of her experience, she has a wealth of knowledge to draw upon. She understands the ins and outs of fundraising and is passionate about matching donors with causes that are important to them. Jess is very perceptive, and can be counted on to be frank and honest about what works and doesn’t work in the non-profit sector.

Write Connections get results by understanding what you want to accomplish and developing an effective strategy to accomplish that goal.
I first met Jess when we worked together on diversity issues and then started to use her expertise when trying out new ideas and concepts with my partner companies. Jess is a marketing and communications professional who I rely on to help guide me when creating new programming.
United Way Worldwide
Jess is perceptive, intuitive, and tailored her work and presentation down to our local brand. It was not a generic strategy meeting, but instead focused on our very specific needs. She challenges us and pushes us to strive for fulfillment of our mission for our community. She did a wonderful job at our strategy meeting and board retreat.
