About Us

Candy Berman & Associates specializes in creating a fundraising strategy for non-profit organizations utilizing events. Our task is to determine the uniqueness of non-profit clients in an effort to position them to capture their share of philanthropic dollars.

Candy's experience in the Atlanta community and her exposure to corporate culture through Leadership Atlanta have served to guide her clients in determining which corporations might be prospects for their particular mission.

As a philanthropist herself, Candy believes that donors want their contribution to benefit the organization directly rather than be used to pay for an elaborate event. She also understands what might motivate individuals to become donors. This specific skill of creatively tailoring a fundraising approach for each of her clients is what makes her firm successful and unique.
