Jennifer comes to A.B. Data after more than seven years at Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). During her tenure as Marketing then as Development Director, Jennifer guided MSF through years of phenomenal growth. In 2009 she was named one of the Nonprofit Times’ Most Influential and Effective Fundraisers. Prior to her time at MSF, she was the manager of major gifts for FINCA International, a global microfinance organization, and Campaign Director for the Massachusetts Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
"Jennifer is one of the most accomplished people in fundraising today," said Chuck Pruitt, Co-Managing Director of A.B. Data. "In our work together as the fundraising agency for Doctors Without Borders, we came to appreciate those remarkable talents and are delighted with her decision to join A.B. Data. Jennifer’s broad blend of development experience makes her the perfect choice as A.B. Data re-imagines our consulting services to meet the emerging fundraising needs of today’s clients."
"Working with A.B. Data over the last three years, I came to recognize their team as the most ethical, responsive agency I had ever come across," Jennifer said. "They genuinely believe in fundraising partnerships with their clients and I am looking forward to helping forge new ones in my new role."
Joe Manes, partner and Senior Vice President of A.B. Data noted: "Jennifer’s impressive track record of success at MSF is matched only by her commitment to the principles of that incredible organization. She has consistently demonstrated in practice what we at A.B. Data have always believed to be true: Donors are selective and their money will follow program that is relevant to their ideals. Fundraising templates and gimmicks are weak substitutes."
"The fundraising world is changing in the way we talk to donors and in the landscape of philanthropic channels," Jennifer noted. "At a time when transparency and integrity have never been more important to donors, the best direct response fundraising agencies will be ones committed to breaking down fundraising silos and employing smart, data-driven strategies to help their clients get ahead of curve."
A.B. Data, with offices in Milwaukee, Washington, D.C. and New York, is a full-service direct response fundraising providing integrated direct mail and online fundraising services for national non-profit, charitable and advocacy organizations including Obama for America, The Wilderness Society, Americans for Responsible Solutions, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and others.
