Fundraising + Advancement

The Global Leader in Finding the Right Fundraising Professionals

Lindauer’s expertise in the fundraising and advancement arena is simply unmatched. We make more placements in this arena than any other firm in the world. We place leaders and build teams, understand the intersections and nuances of myriad functions, and know how to interview hard for skills, cultural competence, and proven success time and time again.

With our experience, we understand the transformational power of the right leader. And we have deep expertise across every advancement function, from principal gifts to major gifts, annual to planned giving, events to engagement, direct response to strategic marketing, stewardship to communications, and analytics to AI. We recognize the opportunities and challenges of leadership transitions, new and waning campaigns, governance, regulation, and the global economy in every era.

Our consultants have been advancement leaders and practitioners across every segment of the nonprofit sector, and personally understand the expectations of Boards, Presidents, CEOs, and key volunteers in achieving philanthropic and contributed revenue.

Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in nonprofits – including in the fundraising and advancement arena – since the firm’s founding. Today, our team continues its leadership in the advocacy for equity and anti-racism work with boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.

Let us help your organization recruit + retain top nonprofit talent

“An international placement can be tricky — you are looking at an enormous decision for candidates to even entertain, let alone commit to. Our process was fantastic, the Search Consultants knew and understood our needs, and the final placement was a home run.”
