WHO WE ARE
From charitable contributions to corporate sponsorships, iConnect pairs organizations with donors who don’t just give to their cause, they get it.

Her talents have taken her from D.C. to Arizona, allowing her to work with donors on a local and national scale while utilizing her talents in all aspects of fundraising — from strategic planning and donor cultivation to event creation and management.
As president and CEO of iConnect, Tami offers her consulting and fundraising services on a contract basis, which allows her to help more organizations get the fundraising they need to succeed.
WHAT WE STAND BY
At iConnect, developing relationships isn’t a means to an end — it’s a means to a beginning.
From individual contributions to corporate donations, every donor has a different reason for why they give. Those reasons are what drive us. Whether it’s finding a cause they believe in or a person they can trust, iConnect approaches donors with a strategy that doesn’t just secure funds for our clients but also sets the stage for their success.
We help organizations achieve their fundraising goals and create a solid foundation for future opportunities by establishing meaningful relationships with donors and offering in-house training and development to improve clients’ solicitation resources going forward.
We don’t want donors to give until it hurts — we want them to give until it feels good. It’s a symbiotic approach that ensures donors aren’t just financially invested in our clients’ success, they’re emotionally invested, too.
