Columns Fundraising Acquires Palmetto Grants Consulting
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
We are pleased to share with you that Palmetto Grants Consulting has joined the Columns Fundraising family!
Led by Founder/CEO Susan Bacon since the company's formation in 2009, Palmetto has been providing grant readiness assessments, funding research, grant writing, proposal submissions and reporting, grant workshops and staff coaching to non-profits across the country. The great team of grant writers, editors and researchers that has raised $14,000,000 for non-profits since 2009 is now available to help augment the planned gift, major gift and campaign work we perform for clients.
“It was important that I found a group of true experts just as passionate about this work as I was, and cared as much about my clients as I did," said Susan. "As we began to explore this venture together the cultures of both firms proved very congruent. It was clear to me that Columns was extremely dedicated to building long-term client relationships based on mutual trust and respect, maintaining high-quality work standards and exceeding clients’ expectations. I am very happy to blend my firm with theirs so that our clients can grow even bigger and better under their leadership.”
Organizations assisted by Palmetto now have at their fingertips a broader swath of services to enhance their fundraising efforts. As Columns partner Scott Sikes says, “This is a perfect blend of companies. Combining our two teams allows Columns to offer the full continuum of fundraising services that will allow us to assist our customers not only in the planning and campaign phases of fundraising, but in the long-term resource sustainability stage, too.”
We welcome the Palmetto staff, clients and friends to the Columns family!
