How Can We Help?
That is the driving question behind Jessica White Associates. By providing counsel to nonprofit organizations, Jessica White Associates helps its clients energize fundraising efforts and enhance organizational effectiveness.

The firm was born out of a need recognized by Jessica early in her career. As a one-person shop at one time, Jessica found it difficult to find affordable, competent counsel on a short-term or per-project basis. Many consultants assisted with capital campaigns and planned giving, but few worked with annual giving  and even fewer provided a complete package of services to implement the counsel.

The response was the creation of Jessica White Associates. Founded in January 2000, Jessica White Associates saves clients time and money, producing excellent results at a cost below what they expect to pay. By working through a network of associates who bring a broad-base of expertise and experience, Jessica White Associates matches clients with only the specific services each needs.

  • Because the client has sensibilities, we must be considerate.
  • Because the client has urgency, we must be quick.
  • Because the client is unique, we must be flexible.
  • Because the client has high expectations, we must excel.
  • Because the client has influence, we have the hopes of more clients.
  • Because of the client, we exist.
