Major Gifts Ramp-Up Million Dollar Fundraiser: Hall Powell – Hall has more than 34 years of fundraising experience, including 19 as a fundraising consultant. He has provided campaign and development counsel to a wide variety of institutions throughout the country, with special emphasis in the healthcare field. Prior to joining Development Systems International and PAX Global over a decade ago, Hall was senior consultant with the fundraising consulting firm Alexander Hass of Atlanta, Georgia. Previously, Hall served as the Executive Vice President of the Memorial Health Foundation, Inc. in Savannah, Georgia, and the founding Executive Director of the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation, Inc., in Wilmington, North Carolina. He spent more than four years as the founding Director of the Amethyst Foundation in Charlotte where he played a significant role in the development of a nonprofit management seminar for Winthrop University.

He has also been instrumental in forming two AFP chapters. He holds an undergraduate degree from Guilford College and an MBA from Winthrop University. Hall also engaged in graduate studies at Columbia International University.

In his role as a fundraising counselor, Hall Powell is a strong advocate of the underlying philosophy of “donor-centered fundraising,” meeting the need of the donor to give, not putting the needs of the nonprofit organization as the primary motive for the donor/institution relationship. With this underlying philosophy for building comprehensive fundraising programs for institutions he served as Chief Development Officer, and for those he serves as fundraising counsel, he supports the Major Gifts Ramp Up model. The model, accurately presented in 13 chapters built upon tried and proven best practices for successful major gifts fundraising, emphasizes building capacity for the nonprofit organization and long-term donor relationships.

Major Gifts Ramp-Up Hall Powell

As a consultant, Hall Powell was retained my Memorial Health University Medical Center Foundation, to develop and strategic plan for fundraising. The major teaching and research regional medical center had a development program raising approximately $2 million annually through the activities of 12 fundraising events and grant seeking, and it was desiring to raise $37 million to fund the building of an advanced cancer research institution on the campus of Memorial Health. For the next four years, Hall served as the Chief Executive Officer of the medical center’s Foundation for the purpose of implementing his strategic fundraising plan. In the first year of his tenure as CEO, Hall restructured the development program utilizing the donor-centered principles of Major Gifts Ramp Up and raised $12 million. Within the next three years, the $37 million goal for the cancer research institute was achieved while developing a comprehensive, capacity-building fundraising staff and program.

Hall is privileged to serve on the faculty of both National Development Institute and National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives. Hall Powell also works with Kathleen Robinson to support NANOE’s 2019 Board of Governors.

Stop Calling Nonprofits Nonprofit – John Horak – The TANGO Alliance

John Horak, The TANGO Alliance – Those of us who work in the “nonprofit” sector need to stop using the term “nonprofit.” This may sound strange coming from someone who has made a living working for nonprofit organizations and who still uses the term regularly. Nevertheless, bear with me as I explain my reasoning. First, the term is an accident of legal history. At the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries […]
