Monique Brizz-Walker, 7-Figure Fundraising Expert™ and Donor Engagement Specialist, is the founder of Event Strategies For Success, a boutique special event fundraising firm created to support leaders nationally and globally and creator of the 7-Figure Fundraising Playbook™, which has 3 main components: Strategic Leadership Consulting Service, customized Workshops and a Masterclass designed to equip non-profit leaders with the non-negotiable building blocks required to turn their mission-driving organization into a sustainable, scalable business.
Monique nearly 30 years experience working with some of New York City’s premier organizations and raising an aggregate of $20+ million dollars. During her career, she has advanced the work of the American Folk Art Museum, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Central Park Conservancy and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund; by producing events that attracted prospects and engage donors, creating strategic alliances with corporations and stakeholders, and positioning each organization in the philanthropic community.
Today, Monique consults with non-profit leaders, Presidents, CEOs, Executive Directors and Board Members, who are committed to strengthening their organization’s philanthropy by: building a strong fundraising infrastructure to ensure broad appeal and maximum impact; incorporating specially-curated events into their portfolio; reinvigorating an existing event to reengage donors and stakeholders; and hosting 6-or-7 figure events to ensure their non-profit is fiscally sound.
Monique finds ways to give back. As a dedicated community advocate she provides support to the Community Leadership Council Board of Kingsbrook Medical Center, a major teaching hospital in Brooklyn, NY. Kingsbrook is recognized for its role in creating One Brooklyn Health – a new health care system that will include an extensive primary and ambulatory care network and programs to address social determinants of health.
She also supports Crown Heights Service Center, a leading out-of-school provider for 40+ years and home of the Crown Heights Institute for Leadership Development (CHILD) and Brooklyn Metropolis Lions Club, which operates under the auspices of Lions Clubs International, a global service organization with more than 1.4 million members worldwide.
