 Laura Macknick is a consummate professional, bridging gaps for organizations throughout their organizational charts.  While she is very skilled at fundraising and marketing, I’m particularly impressed by her capabilities to help organizations of all sizes with capacity building.  Laura has a way of taking what might be considered abstract concepts and making them clear and actionable.  It has been a pleasure to work with her!

Steuben County United Way

For the last several years, I've gotten the opportunity to work with Laura and learn about her passion for philanthropy.  She is giving of her time and talents to ensure that non-profit organizations are successful raising funds to support their cause.  Her passion shows in her thorough assessment of organizations, input and advice, and desire for success.  Laura demonstrates her knowledge and expertise in philanthropy by providing feedback in a kind, constructive, and professional manner.  I would highly recommend Laura to any non-profit organization needing guidance and direction to grow philanthropically.

Laura Macknick is a great resource for all things non-profit.  She is professional, organized and a wealth of knowledge.  Laura has presented at several workshops I have attended and recently did our United Fund Board Retreat.  I would highly recommend Laura to any organization that is looking to further their knowledge of the “non-profit” world!
