Campbell & Company Midwest

Over 40 years of bold visions, smart strategies, and lives changed in the Midwest.

Full-Service Nonprofit Consulting in the Midwest

Anchored in Chicago since our founding in 1976, we are rooted in the Midwest. From Ohio to Wisconsin, Kansas to Indiana, from large cities to small communities, we understand the diversity of the Midwest landscape, and we know that philanthropy runs deep in the region.

There’s a genuine commitment to volunteerism and community building. At the same time, many communities have a limited group of multi-generation families headlining philanthropic efforts.

Campbell & Company can help organizations capitalize on regional strengths and navigate challenges by growing their fundraising programs, harnessing their data, communicating their story, and recruiting visionary leaders.

Our Midwest team includes on-the-ground experts in fundraising, analytics and database, communications, and executive search. We couple regional knowledge and a full suite of services with national perspective, drawing from our work in communities across the country.  

  • The Campbell & Company staff is exceptional. They didn't come to the Goodman with a formulaic approach. They never said, 'That's not possible because that's not how it's done.' They listened, learned, and made great recommendations for the Goodman.

  • We wanted a firm that understood Catholic higher education, private institutions, women's colleges, and fundraising with women. Campbell & Company understood these aspects of fundraising and helped us not only achieve our goal but surpass it by $25 million.

  • Campbell & Company partnered with us on our strategy and helped keep our focus. They helped us persevere during the last phase of a decade-long campaign.

  • Working with the Campbell & Company team was quite rewarding. The dialog and exchange led to new ideas and language that has helped us to position ourselves differently with donors. Campbell & Company helped us to change and elevate the conversation.
