What Our Clients Say
  • Sandy was invaluable to our organization after the earthquake in Haiti.  She came in and developed database systems for us to help withstand the immediate spike in donor activity which caused our workload to double overnite.  We survived and thrived because of her! These systems Sandy put in place also afforded us cost savings that we still benefit from today.  Sandy continues to be a reliable lifeline for our organization at a critical times  for us. Her enormous expertise not only helped us solve current database challenges, but increased our knowledge as she taught us the skills to manage an exploding database, teaching us to think ahead, not just solve immediate problems – her database planning skills are the best in the industry.  She is able to add value with simple issues as well as very complex issues and her unparalleled competency with Raisers Edge allows us to customize our applications for our needs.  She has an ability to dive into our database and unlock its mysteries, making it work for us rather than us working for it.

    Sandra Smith, Executive Director Love A Child, Inc.
  • Sandy Wilder is a first-rate consultant. She not only knows the Raiser's Edge, she knows how to train others to use the system with just the right mix of patience, humor and professionalism. I highly recommend Sandy and intend to invite her back to our school for ongoing training and system clean up.

    Mary Coleman, Director of Institutional Advancement, The Covenant School, Charlottesville, VA
  • Sandy is genuine, passionate, and a consummate professional. Sandy presented at our Delaware Blackbaud Users Group meeting and her in-depth knowledge and experience along with her expert understanding of the needs of The Raiser’s Edge users shined through. Sandy’s creativity, vision, and insightful attention to detail makes it easy for her audience to understand and grasp complicated concepts.  Sandy’s training is invaluable for anyone who wants to get the most out of their Blackbaud software.
