Over her twenty-year career in fundraising, Erin Crotty has come to be called a swiss army knife – versatile, flexible, and indispensable. With each client engagement, she merges her extensive fundraising experience with a true grasp of each client’s unique story to find solutions to complex problems. Her ability to listen and quickly prioritize, has allowed her to significantly impact fundraising growth across organizations, breakdown and revitalize data solutions, and exceed annual revenue goals.
Since 1998, Erin has brought creativity, energy and analytical skills to those organizations she has had the privilege to serve. Her professional experience includes Chief Development Officer of a national sorority, Director of Development within a regional healthcare system, and Senior Vice President for a fundraising consulting firm. She has played almost every internal role and approaches her client work with not only a broad best practice view, but from the viewpoint of having been in the “chair.”
Today, Erin guides nonprofits through the advancement services maze as a fundraising data strategist (sometimes called a ninja) by making data, systems, and processes work FOR organizations in a way that makes sense to fundraisers, data folks, and nonprofit leaders so they can raise more money.
Erin received a bachelor’s degree from Marquette University in 1998 and a master’s degree in Higher Education Administration from the College of William and Mary in 2001. In addition to her passion for philanthropy, Erin is an avid student of positive psychology, a personal growth junkie, marathon runner, boy mom, super- suburbanite, organizational maven, and certified professional coach.
