What Our Clients Say
The clients of KMA Consultants Inc. vary greatly, from well-established robust organizations with national reach, to young, local charities.
I wish we had engaged them earlier
We engaged KMA for our Uncommon Ground campaign, with a goal of $58 million. After working with them I had only one regret: I wish I had engaged KMA on our previous capital campaign. Although I have raised funds for four decades they taught me the age-old formula of discipline and more discipline. This time around there was increased energy in because we were so focused. They’re a great team.

Calibre of work and level of professionalism
As we headed down a road not taken by any public school district before, we sought the assistance of KMA Consultants to shine a light on the unknown. From KMA we received invaluable insight in philanthropy, as they guided us through research in the community, campaign planning, and campaign implementation. Their communication services have far exceeded our expectations resulting in products unlike any others produced in our community. The caliber of work and level of professionalism exemplified by the entire team at KMA Consultants is to be commended. Their encouragement, counsel and tireless efforts have helped us feel confident in the success of our campaign.

Taught us to elevate our sights
I worked with KMA’s partners several times now and it has been an extremely positive and rewarding experience. KMA’s work on our Case for Support put us in touch with our organization’s core values. They made our communications sharper, clearer, and more compelling, and we are now much more outcome focused when explaining our services. Their people have been readily and consistently available to us for guidance, feedback, and encouragement.
The success we experienced in our capital campaign is due in large part to the expertise they brought to our organization’s growth and development. They have taught us to elevate our sights and be confident when speaking about our services and expertise, and they have helped us communicate our passion for our work to those outside our organization. If asked about engaging the services of KMA I would give them my strongest possible endorsement.

Consulting without control
KMA provided Regent College with consulting without control, direction without coercion and professionalism without distance. Their competence, expertise, skill and personableness added much to the fabric of our campaign and led us to believe they were not only consultants but friends of the College. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any organization.

Focused on what’s best for their clients
I am happy to commend KMA as a dedicated and competent fundraising organization. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Ron McClory and Larry Matthews on two major stewardship ventures - at Wycliffe College, Toronto, where I was Development Officer, and at the Church of St. Bride, Clarkson, Mississauga, where I was senior pastoral associate. In both cases I was struck by their focus on what is best for their clients.
They strongly advocate for good fundraising principles, but also know how to adapt good practice to specific situations. KMA understands the dynamics of ministry and what’s required to raise funds among people who gather out of a common faith and heritage. They know that our priorities go beyond just raising money and supported us in pursuing those priorities. At the same time, they keep everyone focused on strategic action to meet the financial goals – a form of consulting that helps make a capital campaign a positive, healthy stewardship experience.
