Alex will guide your project with experience, compassion and humor
Alex Comfort worked with NC Stage at a critical period in our growth. He helped us define who we were more clearly, and identify the people who would be most inspired by our mission. We use his lessons every day!
Alex was instrumental in helping the Literacy Council develop its first planned giving program. When we knew that we had received our first planned gift, Alex was the consultant we turned to for advice and planning. Under his supervision, a series of strategic communications and events were planned to begin cultivating approximately 100 donors for a planned gift.
