Katherine Donnelly Goehring's development and public relations work expands constituencies and increases nonprofit revenues.
Her grants and appeals advocate for everything from improved education and healthcare access in the U.S. to increased awareness of women entrepreneurs in developing nations. She has tripled foundation giving at a Catholic Charities agency serving at-risk children and co-crafted government grants expanding Early Head Start and Universal Pre-Kindergarten for kids in poverty. The contextual data in one of her case statements turned a vacant convent into a school for high-risk teens with a graduation rate exceeding the national average by 30 percent.
And lives chronicled in her philanthropic newsletters signal help for everyone from Seattle's vulnerable elderly and patients with rare diseases falling under the radar of detection, to marginalized New Yorkers searching for jobs, foster care, a hand up, and a way back.
Goehring is an award-winning annual report writer whose numbers record steady, ground-breaking advances in child welfare, patient advocacy, disease awareness and the heart-stopping percentages behind one agency's work to help 28,000 New Yorkers in one year. She also has been privileged to try to crack the code of civic-mindedness alongside Global Citizen (www.globalcitizen.org).
For boards, volunteers, local business owners, and neighbors - for everybody - here's help.
