What Our Clients Say

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Fladeboe Advancement for the last several years through a partnership around our annual gala and beyond. Thanks to their support, we’ve seen continued growth across all key indicators for our event. Their expertise around messaging, strategic giving and industry best practices has helped keep our event engaging and led to deeper relationships with our guests and donors. At our most recent gala, we raised over $800,000 in part due to our expanded partnership with Fladeboe. Their advanced analytics work and recommendations for further engagement with guests led to a greater number of returning guests and increased giving at all levels. We’ve also seen a greater number of event donors make annual fund gifts year-over-year. I would highly recommend Fladeboe Advancement if you’re looking to increase fundraising at your event and deepen engagement with your guests and donors for the long haul.”
