QuamTaylor LLC

nonprofit development consultants

Sherry Quam Taylor teaches nonprofit CEOs and their teams how to break free from traditional fundraising models and activities that limit growth and never secure enough money to fulfill their organization’s vision. She helps teams become less dependent on program, government, and event gifts by helping them learn how to secure large, investment-level donations from individuals. The leaders she works with are high-performing experts in their field but desire an overall financing model that will truly scale their organization’s impact, give them a larger amount of unrestricted funding for overhead, and maximize every hour their teams spend raising revenue. She helps them learn the exact steps to pivot into a mid- and major level gift program that feels comfortable, empowers their advancement team, and fully funds their mission for the long-haul. She does this nationally through private, one-on-one coaching.
