"Working with Rob and his team at DeOrio Strategies Group has been a wonderful experience. The team is outstanding to work with - their knowledge of fundraising, development and the philanthropic community is unmatched. They recently performed a development department assessment for the agency and the final product was informative and professional. It will be the foundation for direction of the department. I would recommend them for any organization of any size."

"As a busy nonprofit executive, I did not have the time that was required to update our organization's Employee Handbook and Administrative Policies. I contracted with DeOrio Strategies to handle this work. Rob met with me and handled everything for me so that I did not have to pull time away from our Mission to handle this administrative task. In fact, when the pandemic struck, Rob offered to assist the organization in other ways to ensure that we could continue moving forward. I was very pleased with all aspects of the work that Rob assisted CASA for Kids with and I cannot recommend him enough to my colleagues!"
- Carrie Richardson, Executive Director, CASA for Kids Washington
