“When we embarked on our largest ever capital campaign, Jim Wellen and his staff came to quickly understand our group. They developed an effective plan and helped our volunteers and staff successfully raise over $12,000,000. They helped us identify our best prospects and solicit major gifts from companies and individuals who had never given substantially to us before.”

“If you are looking for an effective consulting firm with a high level of expertise, I highly recommend JWA Consulting. Jim Wellen is a pleasure to work with. He and his people helped us reach an unprecedented level of funding and gave us top-notch service. After the campaign, we brought JWA Consulting back and they helped us to develop an effective new strategic plan”

“I’ve always loved teaching and hated fundraising. Jim’s fundraising skills and ideas helped our school raise a great deal more money for programs and scholarships. He minimized the pain of asking and delivered much more than we expected.”
