Historically, our specialty has been and continues to be providing full-time and residential direction to fundraising appeals for non-profit institutions.
We operate on a flat weekly fee basis, agreed upon and confirmed by a contract with each client. In addition, all of our work is based on an "at-will" agreement with all clients. The client is only charged for the time that the Campaign Director is working on-site whether it meets the full term of the contract or not. Operational expenses of the campaign, such as printing, postage, campaign materials, and kick-off celebrations are under the control of the client. An estimate of these expenses will be provided by our firm prior to the beginning of the fundraising campaign. When a Client establishes a schedule and signs a contract with WD&R, our Officers select the best person available from our professional staff to serve as the Campaign Director. Campaign direction is provided only by our professional and permanent staff. Our Directors are members of the firm and are motivated to serve our clients well.Read More

- This letter is to offer tremendous gratitude to Klote and Associates for the phenomenal job both the agency and their consultant have performed while working with Central Lutheran School (CLS). Quite honestly, there was some skepticism as to the impact a consultant could make on a capital campaign, but those concerns were quickly dispelled when the consultant, with the Christ centered guidance, took the lead in the campaign. He not only provided training, but more importantly spiritual guidance and leadership based on Christ’s stewardship teachings. There’s a saying, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” However for us at CLS, when the going got tough the consultant, with the help of the Holy Spirit, lifted our steering committee up and kept us going.
I have no doubt at all that Christ lead us to Klote and Associates, and delivered the consultant to lead and guide our campaign. He is a great leader, motivator, and inspires those with whom he works. I firmly believe that he has enabled CLS to reach levels of giving that have never been seen since the 1950s. I have nothing but great respect and admiration for him, as well as the service that Klote and Associates has provided our school and our member churches. I would, without hesitation, strongly encourage other schools and Christian Churches to utilize the services provided by Klote and Associates. I know in my heart that the consultant is a man of God, as it is shown by his leadership and guidance, and I want to thank him for all he has done for CLS.
