Look for us to be with you every step of the way

Alex Comfort, CFRE, has 34 years of experience in an extremely broad range of development and fundraising work. His knowledge, skill, creativity, integrity, humor, speaking ability and tenacity have been hallmarks of his development career in New Orleans, the region around Asheville, NC, and nationally.

"My work always involves a great deal of personal time with my clients. My emphasis is helping people raise more money — especially through major gifts for the present and planned giving for the future. Let me help you with the hard work needed to get you where you need to be."
— Alex Comfort, CFRE

We were working with Alex on a planned giving project when the need for a campaign became obvious. He helped us achieve our goal and beyond, on time, with a very smooth process. So now we are looking forward to working with him on planned giving.
