Fundraising. To some it’s a scary term. For Kristina Klaas + Co. LLC it simply means: challenge accepted.
We’re here to guide you through the world of fundraising. Together we will navigate obstacles, identify opportunities, and develop a clear path forward that leads to sustainability.
Kristina Klaas, Owner
A professional nonprofit fundraiser with more than 10 years of experience, I believe that every nonprofit organization, no matter what budget level, has the ability to make a positive impact on the world using both traditional and digital fundraising methods. No limitation (like limited staff or resources) is too great to ensure the organization meets (and exceeds) fundraising goals in order to provide invaluable resources for its beneficiaries.
Growing up in Florida, I was immersed in the classical arts at a young age. I trained as a classical ballet dancer, yet learned later on that my true love was helping arts organizations raise funds to keep the many forms of art alive. In addition to the arts, I am fortunate to have worked with a variety of other nonprofit organizations with mission ranging from child advocacy to girls’ education in remote, impoverished countries through Central and South Asia.
While these organizations differ in focus there is one commonality: passion for delivering the mission day-in and day-out.
Yet, as we know too well, execution of an organization’s mission requires funding from a variety of sources. I am here to help guide your organization through the world of fundraising, meeting you where you are. Together we can connect your most pressing needs with potential funders that are interested in supporting your organization and its success. And, perhaps most importantly, I’ll help set you on a path for success that demystifies donor-centric fundraising while empowering your organization to achieve attainable and sustainable goals.
A little more about me:
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences from the Wilkes Honors College at Florida Atlantic University and a certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University. I am also a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
Based in Bozeman, MT, you will often find me out hiking, cross-country skiing, or making soap.
