The Campbell & Company East Region team is pleased to announce the addition of a new Senior Consultant, based in the Boston area. Caitlin Bristow joined the team in May from Campbell & Company’s Chicago office.
Since joining the firm in 2014, Caitlin has worked with clients across regions and sectors. She has also developed deep expertise in higher education and independent school fundraising, exemplified by her work with the Fenn School in Concord, MA on a successful two-year, $20 million campaign.
At Campbell & Company, we see every day how nonprofit organizations activate movements and help us all envision a more just and equitable world. It’s one of the reasons we love our work so much.
We also know that philanthropy itself brings up inherent questions of power, especially given inequitable access to wealth that has historically given more influence to larger donors and often benefited already-well-resourced organizations. The sector has often struggled with how to be anti-racist and fully inclusive of people of color, and we are committed to walking with our nonprofit partners in this work.
As such, we are inviting nominations for nonprofits engaged directly in racial equity work who might benefit from our nonprofit consulting services on a pro-bono basis. We are seeking partners who are committed to racial equity as part of their central mission.
At the end of February, Senior Counsel Aggie Sweeney is retiring, capping off a four-decade professional career devoted to advancing the nonprofit sector and strengthening communities throughout the Northwest.
Aggie joined Collins Group in 1999, became President and CEO in 2004, and led the firm as it joined forces with Campbell & Company in 2013. She transitioned to her current Senior Counsel role in 2017, spending more time working with clients, mentoring consultants, and serving as Chair of the Giving USA Foundation Board.
To mark this occasion and celebrate her legacy, we asked Aggie to reflect on her time with our firm and share her perspective on the Northwest nonprofit sector.
Over the past few months, Campbell & Company has welcomed five new colleagues to our team. Each addition brings with them a wealth of experience—from fundraising expertise to analytics mastery and messaging know-how—along with a fresh perspective and a deep passion for the nonprofit sector.
In 2013, Collins Group joined forces with Campbell & Company, a national nonprofit consulting and executive search firm. Over the past four years, we have worked hard to integrate our teams, learn from each other, and build on our collective strengths. September 1st marks the last step of our integration as we retire the Collins Group name and unify under the Campbell & Company name and identity. Collins Group will be known as the Campbell & Company Northwest team going forward. This milestone allows us to stay true to our team approach and advance our mission to collaborate and innovate with people who change lives through philanthropic vision and action.
