Allen Marketing, Advertising & Communications

I provided writing and graphic design services for Robert Moore Allen’s fundraising consultancy, Allen Marketing, Advertising & Communications, for 25 years—from 1983, the year I started my business, through 2008, when Mr. Allen retired.

During that time I wrote more than 75 capital campaign case statements and approximately 30 annual fund solicitations for Allen MAC clients including colleges and universities, independent schools, churches and retirement communities. I also designed a number of campaign logos, stationery and pledge cards as well as case statement booklets and brochures.
