A Scout is Helpful

Helpful: giving or ready to give help

At Hartsook, being helpful is what we do. In our 29 years of service to nonprofits, Hartsook has provided counsel for thousands of projects and helped raise billions of dollars in the States and abroad. As a firm, we are committed to growing overall philanthropy by 25 percent over the next 20 years, so we continue to invest our time and resources toward improving the practice of fundraising worldwide. If we can be helpful to your council, be sure to let us know.

Sharing Loyalty in Atlanta
"Loyalty is a feature in a boy's character that inspires boundless hope." - Sir Robert Baden-Powell

Stop by the Hartsook Booth 355 at the conference in Atlanta and we will give you a collectible ceramic coin to keep or to trade. A Scout is Loyal: One who is loyal will not say "yes" when "no" is necessary. Loyal does not mean always agreeing. Clear communication is of higher value than self-interest or disingenuous "agreement." Above all, Hartsook is loyal to its clients, because our mission is to help our clients fully realize their mission.
