Philanthropy Expert has your back

We’ve seen it all.

According to evidence unearthed in the mid-1970’s, Philanthropy Expert was founded in Ancient Rome in the 5th century BC. The occasion is marked as the first time a person saw, listened, understood and then helped another person raise funds for a chariot race benefiting the local mosaic guild…

What our clients say

We couldn’t have done it without them.

Philanthropy Expert’s team was pivotal in opening The Other Side Academy’s Denver campus. Frankly, we couldn’t have done it without them. They were able to channel our vision and enthusiasm into real momentum. A turning point that led to us surpassing our goals. I spent over a year fundraising, with varied success, before hiring PE to help me navigate this world. My only regret is not partnering with them sooner.

Andrew Schmidt, The Other Side Academy Denver

An essential part of our core team.

WLF has worked with Philanthropy Expert for over three years, and Erin and the PE team are our trusted partners. Our exceptional progress and aggressive goals are possible because of their professional and innovative skills. They are an essential part of our core team.

Barbara Bauer, Women's Leadership Foundation

A game changer!

From our founding more than 10 years ago, Philanthropy Expert has been instrumental in executing events and raising crucial dollars so our students can thrive. Having a driver and true partnership to implement our fundraising strategy has been a game changer. We would not be able to accomplish everything that we do without PE. They are amazing!

Every client is different, and that’s what makes our work enjoyable.

We start every project with honest assessments of our client’s current circumstances. We don’t judge (lest we be judged), and we lead with a strong desire to help identify long-term goals and create achievable objectives in the short term. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and all of our engagements are developed to meet each client’s unique needs.

We promise to jump into the trenches with you, own your goals with you, commit to your success and laugh and cry with you because this work is hard.
