Our Experience Matters

The Nature Conservancy (Maine)

Partnering for Unprecedented Success

After a campaign hiatus and leadership change, TNC Maine sought help to ensure they were positioned for success. Compass conducted a Planning Study which laid the groundwork for a $130 million campaign with a bold theme. Compass was retained for Campaign Management, training staff and bringing discipline and accountability to the campaign. Through its five-year partnership with Compass, TNC Maine was committed to getting the campaign right. Ultimately, they exceeded the initial target and increased the campaign goal to $200 million.

The Compass Group took us to a whole new level. From the very first meeting, it was clear we were aligning ourselves with a philosophy and a practice around philanthropy that would allow us to clarify our needs and achieve our goals.
