"When folks have allotted themselves a task and work together
in unison, they escape unhappiness."

Demont Associates provides philanthropic counsel and related services to not-for-profit organizations.

We offer an attentive group of consulting professionals committed to volunteer-driven fund-raising and advancement programs.

Our team approach to each assignment affords each client maximum expertise, optimum accountability, and prompt and reliable service.

“Demont’s senior officer was very adept at ‘seeing the forest for the trees,’ and helping on major strategic issues along the two-year campaign period.”

Bob Clark, Chief Professional Officer
Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine, Portland, Maine

None of us envisioned that we had the capacity to raise over $3 million in a year, and our fund-raising programs are stronger than they have ever been.

Mary Ann Allen, Chief Executive Officer
Wildwood Programs, Inc., Schenectady, NY

The Demont team grasped the nuances of our parish and stood out in their preparation, understanding, and ability to comment intelligently about our particular challenges.

This was a challenging campaign with several unique obstacles, some unanticipated, and Demont Associates met every one of these with intelligence, perspective, and imagination.

The American Camp Association, New England, Lexington, MA

People were impressed by Demont’s flexibility in meeting difficult deadlines and meeting our requirements and need for changes… As a fellow consultant working in this field, I learned a lot.

Bay Chamber Concerts, Cambridge, MA and Camden, ME

Quite simply, we could not have accomplished what we have achieved (raising $9.4 million to date), without Demont’s expertise, professionalism, and passion.

Keene Family YMCA, Keene, NH

We were really pleased with the guidance, structure, expertise, and warmth that Demont provided us with in our campaign.

The Demont team clearly had personal passion for our mission, which was crucial to earning trust and respect among our volunteers.

The Demont team members are creative problem-solvers that connect very well with our alumni. Most importantly, they are willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.

Peter Hare, Executive Director
Keewaydin Foundation, Salisbury, VT and Ontario, Canada

Demont Associates was exceedingly helpful with what was a very ambitious campaign for a relatively small rural hospital. They made us think “outside the bun,” and they were able to frame issues in a way we could understand and relate to.

Franklin Medical Center, Greenfield, MA

Hyde aspired to raise about $8M; however, before launching our last campaign, we decided to hire a consulting firm to help us. It was probably the single smartest thing we did. Demont Associates helped us raise $16M – far more than any of our staff or Board members imagined we could raise and six times more than any prior campaign.
