“... understood the value of nurturing donors into champions, and ultimately took us over the finish line...”

Raising nearly $13 million for a new high school campus was a monumental feat, especially for a school that had never conducted a major fundraising effort. Having Andy Sears lead the campaign made all the difference. He never lost sight of the goal, was amazingly organized throughout the planning and implementation of the campaign, understood the value of nurturing donors into champions, and ultimately took us over the finish line…accomplishing it all during a recessionary economy.

“...visionary leadership coupled with the ability to provide insightful strategic direction...

Andrew Sears embodies the character, integrity, and capability found only in the greatest leaders. Embracing a team approach to work, he never hesitates to do the heaviest lifting and most thankless tasks. His visionary leadership coupled with the ability to provide insightful strategic direction has helped many organizations like ours see a vision become reality. Just as important, however, is his innate humbleness and ability to coach others to reach their full leadership potential...while maintaining a deep sense of purpose and healthy sense of humor.

“... I highly recommend Contour Strategies...”

Working with Andy Sears over the past three years has provided AGCI the complete package -- solid development leadership, thorough staff training, amazing results, and a healthy dose of fun. I highly recommend Contour Strategies for any organization that is looking to strengthen their development program and enhance bottom-line results. Andy thoroughly understands the foundational elements required to transition to a model of transformational giving, the tactics to grow a sustainable program, and ultimately the means to fund a vision.
