Fundraising & communications for social justice.

Hi!  I’m Jocelyn.
I’ve helped raise over $60M for nonprofits.

If you need:

  • More money to achieve your mission
  • Greater capacity for your fundraising team
  • Increased support for your leadership

I can help.

I provide fundraising, donor communications, and coaching services to help social justice organizations and leaders achieve their revenue goals and create greater impact.


Work with me to develop and execute your fundraising plan.

This may include honing your case for support, building and qualifying your prospect list, training your board members and volunteers, or writing winning appeals, and grant proposals.




Work with me to create messaging and materials that make your donors merry!

This may include drafting your CEO updates, impact reports, blog posts, and articles.




Fundraising is hard, and leadership can be lonely. I’ve been there. Sometimes you need a partner to review your strategy, advance a funder relationship, or address a challenge on your team.

I provide fundraising and leadership coaching to a few existing clients each year.

In addition to being a skilled professional, Jocelyn is anchored in the values of truth, compassion, and excellence, and her work is delivered in that spirit, making her an immensely effective contributor to this sector.

Jocelyn’s writing and storytelling cuts through all of the noise.

“In an age of information overload and fake news, Jocelyn’s writing and storytelling cuts through all of the noise. She lifts up the voices of people and organizations doing incredible work in a way that is informative, credible, accessible, and most importantly, actionable. She also beats every. single. deadline!

Every time I’ve collaborated with Jocelyn, she’s taught me something new and challenged me to think more deeply about the world around us. She’s bold, thoughtful, curious, and an absolute delight to work with on every project.”
