Charlotte Kresse

Co-Founder of Raise HECK

Co-founder of fundraising consulting firm, Raise HECK, Charlotte Kresse started her career in a small community nonprofit in Providence, Rhode Island. She then moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked in a U.S. senator’s front office, supporting digital communications for NARAL Pro-Choice America, and then six years at Chapman Cubine Adams + Hussey in strategy roles that saw her grow the agency’s digital marketing team from the ground up. She went on to spend six years building strategic partnerships at Blackbaud, where she learned to get to the heart of how best to match a client’s vision with their mission’s true needs. Charlotte sees the forest through the trees and understands how to cut through layers by asking the right questions that ensure the solutions you choose fit your business strategy. Having seen all sides of mission objectives–from advocacy to fundraising–Charlotte understands the intricacies of strategy and what really does make a difference in promoting social change. Charlotte lives in Rhode Island with her husband, two boys, and two dogs.
