With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of nonprofit development, publications and organizational management, she helped her clients improve fundraising potential through direct mail, donor cultivation, events, grant writing and print materials.
Before establishing Martin Consulting, Sandy was the vice president of development with People's Emergency Center—one of Philadelphia largest social service agencies—where she oversaw all fundraising activities, government contracts, direct mail, contract compliance and volunteers. She created a series of annual fundraising events and increased corporate support by 50 percent through event sponsorships. She also oversaw the design of a new corporate image through the development of new print materials.
