I have spent the last 12 years in the nonprofit sector focused on education reform, climate justice, as well as environmental and health education and equity. I have served as the Managing Director and Executive Director of multiple nonprofits and have had significant fundraising requirements in all of my nonprofit leadership roles.


Once I became a coach I recognized my limitations around fundraising. So, I started putting coaching tools and strategies into practice in my fundraising work (the same tools that I’ll be teaching others in my one-on-one coaching program). The results were tremendous. In 6 months, I tripled my previous fundraising earnings. In 18 months I have taken an organization from a million dollar budget to 2.7 million (80% of which is unrestricted funding).


This personal experience reinforced for me that our particular field needs tailored and personalized Executive Coaching. Unlike your typical fundraising consultant, I will work with you to understand the challenges in your organization and break down your true barriers to success, so that you can see impactful, long-term, and sustainable development.


My Superpowers Include: 

  • Major gift identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship

  • Corporate sponsorships 

  • Corporate Foundations

  • Family Foundations

  • Grassroots campaign design and management  


Mallory is an incredibly caring, calm, and inspiring coach. With a coaching background myself, I find it important to work with someone who really understands how to focus a session, provide targeted goal- setting and next steps, while creating a space where I can bring my full experience to our work together and know it is valued and appreciated. As a Development Director for a small organization, I worked in small team and even in the first session with Mallory, I felt like I had an extra teammate in her that could help me creatively see solutions to challenges with ease. I would absolutely recommend Mallory to anyone looking to take their work to the next level!
