Experience

For more than thirty years, Bennett Samson has been providing fundraising support to some of the nation's leading nonprofit organizations and institutions.


Organizations large and small have already had the benefit of his experience and expertise.  


  • Designing and managing all aspects of successful multi-million dollar capital campaigns … 
  • Originating and managing a direct mail program that has built a donor base of more than 200,000 and net income in excess of $10 million annually for a Washington DC Museum … 
  • Writing successful funding proposals for programs and operations up to $20 million ... 
  • Helping a statewide arts organization secure its first six-figure gifts in its more than 80-year history ... 
  • Helping a local arts organization to develop a strategic plan ...

 these are some of his accomplishments.


Now based in West Hollywood, CA and forging affiliations with some of the region's most talented marketing, graphic design and communications professionals, he is the moving force behind "Strength in Numbers," an organization designed to help your organization meet its funding goals.

Mission

In forming Strength in Numbers, my mission has been to provide support to organizations that contribute to making the communities in which they operate -- be they local or global in scope -- better places for all who live there.  My special concerns are for organizations serving children, advancing human rights, providing social services for those in greatest need, providing improved access to the arts, education and cultural facilities.


Like the best of the organizations I've served in the past, my aim is to help my clients to help themselves; to teach you how to fish rather than hand you a fish to eat.  For my part, I shall bring the tools you need to succeed, including proven planning methodology, publications and other presentation materials that put your organization and its need in the most compelling light, and leadership training and support.
