What clients say
Bespoke consulting supported us during a time of development leadership transition and provided guidance for the organization and team. Bespoke helped establish a foundation for our campaign by reviewing and developing policies and procedures, working with the Board to identify a pipeline of prospects and advancing proposals. They have fostered an increased level of fundraising activity that will serve us well on an ongoing basis. I highly recommend Bespoke and would certainly engage them again.

Jolene and her team have provided a level of expertise, guidance and support for us that feels like pure gold. They have turned our ambitions into a concrete plan that we are now ready to execute.

The speed with which Bespoke familiarized themselves with our operations and immersed themselves in our culture speaks volumes to their dedication and professionalism. Understanding who we are and what our vision is has meant an almost seamless integration of strategic fund development into our organization. We couldn’t be more pleased.
Executive Director, The Alpine Club of Canada
I engaged Bespoke Consulting to conduct a campaign readiness study for us. Their professional approach and ease with our faculty, staff, alumni and donors made their process seamless and enjoyable. Bespoke provided the perfect mix of expertise in multiple areas of fundraising management strategy. Their high quality report and tailored recommendations have informed our go-forward strategy. I have since reengaged Bespoke to work with Huron on the next phase of our campaign strategy.
