a word from a Red Olive client

Due in no small part to Red Olive Creative Consulting, Cave Canem Foundation not only met its 2017 year-end goal, we exceeded it by more than 300%. Such support begets further opportunities for poets, who beget poems, that beget, one homes, a world made more livable. –Nicole Sealey, Executive Director 


After a successful 2017 End of Year campaign, Cave Canem renewed its contract with Red Olive Consulting for an 11-month engagement in 2018. Red Olive supported Cave Canem’s transition to a small shop supportive CRM (Client Relationship Manager) platform. Now, Cave Canem has one place that collects and stores information–freeing up staff time, while ensuring proper fundraising protocol. Additionally, Red Olive worked with Cave Canem to recoup lost donors through a Spring Appeal. This encompassed a targeted approach with a highly personalized touch. The emails reactivated 5% of those who had for whatever reason taken time off from supporting us!  –Nicole Sealey, Executive Director
