Roy Jones, CFRE
What Our Clients Have Said:
“Roy trained my original major gifts team and launched our major giving program, more than four years ago. When I received my first $1.8 million dollar donation, Roy was the first person I thanked for his investment in me. Roy is a confidant, sounding board and friend that I often turn to for coaching and advice in fundraising and leadership. I have him back regularly to train my team. – Dr. Candace L. Gregory, President/CEO, Open Door Mission
“Roy Jones’ leadership has been an incredible asset to our organization. We were shown how to dig into our donor file and cultivate lasting relationships with supporters nationwide. His strategies helped us raise $750,000 in just six weeks, with over 50% coming from lapsed donors. The entire campaign raised $2.5 million. I am forever grateful for his invaluable leadership and friendship. – Dennis Chapman, Chief Development Officer (emeritus), City Union Mission of Kansas City
