rh Strategic worked with Hatzolah of Los Angeles, a volunteer emergency medical response organization, to prepare for its annual gala. The organization faced a significant infrastructure problem as an all-volunteer organization in addition to community perception challenges.

Working closely with the organization’s leadership, rh Strategic developed a plan to tackle the fundraising challenges. One thing this small organization had going for it was an immensely impressive mailing list with thousands of names, addresses and emails. Of course, how does a small crew of inexperienced volunteer fundraisers solicit gifts from 5,000+ donors?

Presenting a strategic approach, rh Strategic tackled the mammoth contact list by including prior donation history where applicable.

"We worked with Ryan on our recent Legacy Dinner Campaign. The campaign posed a tremendous challenge for us as the honoree had a very wide reach of parents, grandparents, alumni, as well as community members. His professional guidance during the campaign was invaluable and he became much more than a consultant and more of an integral member of our team. We have worked with other consultants who gave us instructions of what to implement and then moved on. Every suggestion Ryan made was followed up on and he always helped make sure we stayed focused and on target. The most impressive thing of all was that Ryan came to our event and immediately asked what he could do to help out! Shulamith will definitely be calling him for our next campaign!"
“Ryan is a spot-on Marketing and Relations expert. He knows how to portray any company or organization in the best light, and is a pleasure to work with as well.”
“Among the challenges was to educate and sell a new look--a very different one than what had been done in the past. He succeeded and a new design was implemented for this event -- it was very well received by all.”
“Ryan is one of those can do people who actually goes out and does it. Working with Ryan you really start to appreciate his scrutiny to details and the greater picture. Working with Ryan on a project you really see his expertise and experience for Public Relations. It's a breath of fresh air to see someone who takes an enormous pride in his work.”
“Ryan is a highly motivated and extremely professional individual. Ryan and I collaborated on a series of events. Ryan's careful planning and marketing of the events ensured their success. In addition, even while he focused on the details, he never lost sight of the big picture. It was a pleasure working with Ryan on these projects each and every time, and I will certainly work with him again.”
“Ryan's work in coordinating large-scale events and seamlessly transitioning from one event to another was very impressive. Having worked directly with Ryan to coordinate one of these events, I was able to appreciate Ryan's ability to interact with people throughout the country to facilitate the necessary working relationships. Without a doubt, Ryan's hard work, dedication and personality were vital and significant assets.”
