Company Overview
I have built my nonprofit career working with start-ups and charities in crisis. I believe that growth comes from building relationships to cultivate volunteers, donors and board members who believe in the mission of the agency they support.
A strategic vision is the key to establishing a successful agency brand and is useful in identifying supporters through social media and attracting new donors through volunteer opportunities. My expertise is in building partnerships and collaborations.

Testimonial 1
As the Executive Director of the IL Medical District Guest House Foundation, Michael took the Foundation from a small operation and a staff of only one (Mike himself) to a significant offering to the families of patients in the IL Medical District. Michael more than doubled the rooms available for families, developed a sliding fee scale for occupants of the Guest House, increased the donations, developed two annual fundraising events that grew in attendance and sponsorships year over year and developed an organization of professionals to support the Foundation. Michael successfully relocated the Guest House from a dilapidated building to a dormitory at a Medical District University where he worked with the University and other organizations to renovate rooms and develop a standard room appearance. He enhanced the guest experience by combining two dorm rooms into one larger room that became the Community Room where guests could enjoy meals, movie nights and a number of other activities that were sponsored by local organizations that were donating time to the Foundation. Michael was able to make a significant impact in a short period of time on the IL Medical District Guest House Foundation.
