Our partner since 2010, Blueprint has played a key role in The Bushnell’s ability to more than double our Annual Fund in the last five years through both their extraordinary work in Telefunding and their guidance and support in all aspects of our fundraising effort. Blueprint has a breadth and depth of experience and knowledge across a diversity of non-profits that enables them to provide key insight and strategic assistance as we work to achieve significant growth year after year. With their support, The Bushnell is poised to continue its upward trajectory in our Annual Fund program.

It was my distinct pleasure to have worked with Paul Larson. He is a visionary and someone who gets-the-job-done with minimal angst and a light touch! His artistic, social and business acumen are evenly matched.


-Julie Moffitt, President, Glacier Symphony Orchestra and Chorale

 

 

The relationship between the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and Paul Larson of Blueprint is in its second decade, and far from a service-based relationship, we have a partnership. The work of Paul and his team so impressed our colleagues of The Bushnell Performing Arts Center (where we are housed and perform, though we are two separate organizations) that the Bushnell now works with Paul as well. With guidance and input from Paul and his team of professionals, we collaborate on all aspects of the campaign they handle on our behalf, and their highly-trained solicitors, some of whom are well-known by our donors, are considered an important extension of the Symphony’s small in-house development team. There is follow-up, attention to detail, and beyond our bi-weekly scheduled meetings, the team is immediately responsive to any issues, concerns or need for adjustment.


-Ruth Sovronsky, Development Director, Hartford Symphony Orchestra

 

 

Performing arts patrons are a special breed, comprised of people that require a particular level of professionalism, creativity and gravitas when communicating to. I want to be sure that when our sales leads are being recruited and solicited, we treat these individuals with special care. We need to communicate to patrons according to where they are at in their experience with our client’s performances - either as a fresh, new patron who has never experienced our art form, to the long-standing contributor who has seen countless performances around the world. This requires great strategy and a complete understanding of how to successfully convert a variety of individuals to support our clients. Luckily, I have had the great fortune to partner with Paul Larson and his team for several of our clients. Paul brings an innate understanding of what it means to talk to patrons one on one, and brings a special insight as we create and implement campaigns together. I’ve turned to him many times with ever increasingly successful results.

Working with Blueprint has allowed Lyric Opera of Kansas City broader access to our patrons. More than just a your average company, Paul and his team partner alongside you every step of the way to execute sharing your company’s vision. Beyond that, they saw us to an average renewal dollars increase of over 40%! Blueprint Advancement is communicative and agile and I highly recommend their services.
