No problem is too large or too small.

Brenda Helget is the President and CEO of Helget Consulting. She has over 18 years of experience in the nonprofit field, with 14 of those years focused on fundraising.

She also took an employee campaign to record-breaking heights in 2012, achieving 72% participation from over 4,000 employees and raising nearly $400,000.

Helget has been sought after as a speaker, with sessions for AFP Nebraska, the University of Nebraska-Omaha, the Lincoln American Marketing Association's Cause Camp Conference, the Mid-America Conference and the AFP International Conference. Her standing-room only session at the AFP International Conference gained notice from the Chronicle of Philanthropy,...
