What People Say

Ellen L. Baker McCabe & Mack LLP
Ellen L. Baker Of Counsel, McCabe & Mack LLP
Chair, Dutchess Community College Foundation

Being very impressed with the work Kathleen did for the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, I recommended to my law firm that we retain her services to update our website and assist us in developing a marketing plan. We have been very pleased with the work she has done for us. The first thing she did was to really get to know us so that the materials she produced would accurately reflect who we are. We have been very pleased with the result. Kathleen is easy to work with because I believe she is genuinely interested in learning about the businesses she works with and the people who work there.

Highly recommend working with Kathleen and her team! Over 3 1/2 years, she helped us strategically segment and grow our annual fund and major donor programs by leaps and bounds. She also improved our communications, publications and social media, and project-managed a website overhaul and grant-funded awareness project to completion. An organized and thorough systems-thinker, Kathleen’s creative solutions and "get-it-done right" work ethic solved the Walkway’s need for expert support that bridged staffing transitions.

I am a better person because of Kathleen. Her personal example when it comes to learning and excellence inspires me — and my work is better as a direct result of her coaching and recommendations. If you get the chance to work with her, jump on the opportunity.

March Gallagher, Esq. Ulster County Comptroller
Former President & CEO, Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley

The Advancement Communications team managed rebranding of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley’s communications and PR at the beginning of my tenure, adding new energy to our visual brand while improving our public visibility. Kathleen has a talent for uncovering donors’ philanthropic motivations, and she is able to translate that into compelling visual storytelling. Her nuanced understanding of the big picture, combined with an ability to outline a path forward and bring vision to reality, will be of great benefit to any nonprofit or small business.

I have had the pleasure of working with Kathleen for over 15 years in different capacities. Kathleen is dependable, efficient and very detail-oriented. She has a warm, cheerful attitude and exceptional abilities. In additional to her creative talents, she is very knowledgeable and skilled in the areas of development, campaigns and fundraising.

It is my pleasure to recommend Kathleen. She wrote the Harkness Eye Institute's newsletter "The Viewpoint" for several years as well as a book about our scientific advances. She is an excellent writer, with a intuitive understanding of what will interest and entice potential donors. She has excellent interpersonal skills and is able to work with, and bring out the best from many personalities. One of Kathleen's strengths is her outstanding ability to get up to speed quickly with sufficient depth, on new scientific/medical topics, and then to translate and communicate that content for a variety of audiences.

Kathleen has continued to demonstrate that she is adept and creative in packaging important story lines to heighten media interest in the Beacon Institute. She is also very accessible and responsive to the media and serves as our lead contact in a very effective fashion.
