Saad&Shaw is unique among fundraising consultancies.

  • Saad&Shaw is an established firm with a national reputation.
  • Saad&Shaw has deep experience in the non-profit fundraising world, but it does not limit its focus to fundraising guidance alone.
  • Saad&Shaw has helped many non-profits reach and often exceed their fundraising goals, and also provides expertise to government agencies, and businesses

Saad&Shaw exists to help all of its diverse clients become more creative, more efficient, more capable, and ultimately more self-sufficient, so that they may achieve success in all areas – including fundraising.

We urge clients to ask the hard questions necessary to honestly assess their own strengths and weaknesses. It is not always comfortable, but it always rewarding. And with Saad&Shaw guiding the way, you don’t have to go through it alone. We are there with you, sharing the challenges and celebrating the joy in your journey of self-discovery.

Mel and Pearl work directly with all clients during all phases of the initial engagement, assessment, and planning. Later, after strategies and plans are fully worked out and agreed to, Mel and Pearl are joined by experienced colleagues from the Saad&Shaw team. These professionals, working under Mel and Pearl’s guidance, have specific expertise in executing different aspects of your individual plan.

Saad&Shaw clients come from all parts of the U.S. and beyond. They represent different philosophies of giving and serve different populations. But they all have one thing in common: a desire to strengthen society by giving back and making a real difference in people’s lives.
