• Sitting in a capital campaign training for the board I'm on. Having a hard time keeping quiet when my fellow board members ask questions and the guy has terrible answers. Thanks for training me. I wish you could train everyone.

  • “I don't know how I would have grown our organization, learned so much about successfully organizing a 501(c)(3), and succeeded in navigating around the pitfalls of the nonprofit world were it not for the invaluable assistance of Deb Dale and her firm. They helped with board expansion, fundraising, budgeting, you name it. They were instrumental in helping us obtain a substantial sponsorship in 2015 and set up and manage a successful capital campaign in 2016-17. They are shrewd, savvy, and on top of it all, wonderful to work with. In short, I couldn't recommend their services more highly.”

    Curtis McCrary Executive Director, The Rialto Theatre and R Bar
  • Having never seriously fundraised we were nervous about undertaking an Endowment campaign.  We were convinced after their comprehensive study that we could succeed and with their counsel, we did!

    James Reel (Former) Board Member, Arizona Friends of Chamber Music
  • “I have worked on many Capital Campaigns with other counsel and after working with Smith & Dale wouldn’t hire anyone else.”

    David Lovitt DM Lovitt Insurance, Campaign Chair, Tucson Botanical Gardens
  • “As a Board Chair their counsel has been invaluable. Our organization has produced concrete plans and results based on their leadership. Deb Dale & Associates understand the differences and similarities with corporate and nonprofit needs and expectations.“

    Lisa Lovallo Southern Arizona Market Vice President, Cox Communications
  • “I want to thank you and your team for the truly did a magnificent job on our event with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. We would not have had such a success without the guidance, ideas, energy, commitment, and get it done approach.  You exceeded expectations.”

    James E. Cook Executive Director, Western National Parks Association

  • 'Because of you, I’m finding direction and clarity on leadership - what it looks like and what it’s not.’

    Madeleine Boos American Institute of Architects Southern Arizona Chapter President
  • You guys have been so helpful to us. Your best advice “No online go-fund-me project” has helped us stay in business. We are doing everything privately. The first person I asked to help support us through a new “Friends of El Tour” campaign, I asked for a small, low-interest loan. He said, “I don’t do loans. Here’s a $20,000 contribution, keep your work going!” Everyone I asked has given me more than what I could ever imagine.
