"I understand the barriers and growing pains that can accompany both everyday and game-changing development efforts. While I bring my depth of fundraising experience to every client, I strive to know each organization singularly through staff engagement and research. In this way, I am able to address my clients’ specific needs and partner with them as they further their mission."

About Molly Stack
Molly Stack knows the value of starting with a strong relationship and the right information, which can then allow ideas and innovation to flourish. Molly’s ten-year career has led her through all aspects of fundraising operations, which helps her see how incremental changes lead an organization to transform—it also helps her guide clients through rough patches that accompany change. She does this with the understanding that an organization’s staff and history are some of its finest resources. In working with clients, Molly enjoys opportunities to:
- Help clients overcome perceived barriers by uncovering and utilizing their own innate strengths
- Supporting and enabling passionate staff who undertake meaningful work
- Co-develop new techniques and procedures that simplify processes and relieve organizational stresses
- Assist in the achievement of strategic goals that increase or expand the breadth of service an organization is able to provide to their community
- Work with staff and volunteers to identify and empower leaders among themselves
Prior to joining Campbell & Company, Molly most recently served as Development Director for Architecture for Humanity. During her tenure, Molly doubled annual fundraising by facilitating major donor engagement and solicitation. In response to the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, she drove a six month rebuilding fundraising program that secured $3.4 million in private, corporate and foundation support combined.
Molly previously served as Campaign Associate at Convent & Stuart Hall, a member of Schools of the Sacred Heart in San Francisco, where she worked closely with Board Members, staff leaders and colleagues in securing more than $14 million in capital campaign gifts and multi-year commitments. This campaign recently met its goal of $22 million.
Molly’s professional experience also includes serving as Development Associate for the ALS Association, Greater Bay Area Chapter, where her careful segmentation of the donor pool was integral to substantial Annual and Endowment Fund growth.
