"Fundraising on a Mission developed and delivered a capital campaign feasibility study report for Southern Coos Hospital’s Foundation (SCHF).  The Hospital immediately began to put some of the suggestions in the report to work as we plan for the remodel and expanded emergency department. Clarinda and James offered a much-needed objective viewpoint on how the community perceives our small rural hospital and the services we provide; developed a clear roadmap of tasks to tackle in preparation for a campaign; and gave us data to make informed decisions.  We are grateful for the insight from Clarinda and James look forward to continuing our work with them we launch our capital campaign."
