Monique credits her accomplishments to the ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues and consultants, board members and stakeholders, vendors and volunteers. When asked for advice on how to engage donors through special events, she stresses how important it is for organizations to: create a blueprint with clearly defined goals, learn as much as possible about donors and prospects and find unique ways to share your philanthropy story with beneficiaries and consumers.
