NEW YORK, July 12, 2016 (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
Powered by Professionals, the entrepreneurial fundraising and events management firm that has served more than 50 non-profit organizations nationwide, announced today that it has reached the milestone of raising $100,000,000 on behalf of its clients.
“This achievement underscores our commitment to advancing philanthropy in America, and it firmly puts us in a position of leadership in the fundraising industry,” said Darren Port, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Powered by Professionals (PBP).
Founded in 2001, Powered by Professionals has helped charities such as the University of Maryland, Sarcoma Foundation of America, Brooklyn Volunteer Lawyers Project, National Pancreas Foundation, New York Hedge Fund Roundtable and Runway of Dreams raise the funds essential to the successful achievement of their missions and maintenance of their important programs. The firm creates customized development strategies for each client, which enables them to consistently meet or exceed client fundraising objectives.
Port, who was a pioneer in exploring the belief that by taking risks and turning a passion into a career, one can create more positive outcomes for oneself and the communities in which one lives, explains why passion has fueled his company’s growth and success. “As a young man, I experienced the loss of both of my parents to cancer. I became deeply involved in fighting this disease by fundraising, advocating and volunteering for charities. Fifteen years ago, as a result of my profound personal experience with the healing and helping power of philanthropy, I was driven to launch PBP. I recognized the tremendous impact of the nonprofit sector and my own abilities in fundraising, so I combined entrepreneurship with my passion and turned it into a business that has made a difference.”
Powered by Professionals has successfully launched eleven nonprofit organizations, from their inception. The company has helped founders transform their vision into reality and serve hundreds of thousands of families around the world. PBP has worked directly with many families in times of hardship to create organizations that keep alive memories that comfort them and promise to last a lifetime.
PBP has created a unique process that nonprofits can use to help them structure and build out sustainable fundraising events through what it calls “The Complete Fundraising Advantage”. This proprietary program offers a proven plan consisting of formulas and strategies that has enabled firms to increase their fundraising results by at least 15%.
Phyllis Rabinowitz, the Executive Director of R Baby Foundation, a longstanding PBP client, says “Powered by Professionals completely embraced our mission right from the start of our relationship, and honed in on our exact needs to ensure growth. What sets them apart is that they consistently deliver impactful results, with the addition of sincere passion for our cause.”
Another client, Steve Silverstein, Chairman of the Board of Melanoma Research Foundation, remarked on how PBP supported their fundraising growth in multiple cities across the nation, “MRF has partnered with Darren Port and Powered by Professionals for 11 years. With his rare combination or business acumen, philanthropic knowledge and passion, he and his team at Powered by Professionals have successfully adapted our events city by city, in the New York, San Francisco and Denver markets”.
