Cabin 9 Consulting worked to revamp two fundraising campaigns, largely focused on church support.

By reinvigorating their campaigns and increasing contact with supporters, Hannah’s Hope tripled their contributions that year.

The Light the Way campaign materials by Cabin 9 Consulting were shared on social media, email, direct mail, and video. Cabin 9 Consulting facilitated prospect identification and direct ask training, resulting in several four- and five-figure gifts.
The relationship between UTM Wesley Foundation and Cabin 9 Consulting started with a strategic plan that resulted in a need for a fundraising plan.
