Who We Are

“The Hodge Group has raised over half-a-billion dollars during our thirty-five years in philanthropy. With CFREs, PhDs, and MBAs on our team, we have used our skillsets to increase the fundraising prowess of all types of clients, from libraries and the education sector at large to agriculture, museums, and arts institutions. All of us at The Hodge Group believe in servant leadership and take pride in working with nonprofits to develop comprehensive solutions that focus not just on fundraising, but also better techniques for management and branding as well so that your organization can tell its story in the most effective way.”

What We Do

“At The Hodge Group, we set the stage for giving. That means we empower our clients so that they are well prepared to go into their communities and be successful in soliciting gifts. We enjoy working with our clients through any and all of the services below in order to effectively set the stage for giving:

Feasibility Study: We have a tried and true process for facilitating studies. We’ve spoken with over 100 interviewees in the past year alone, and have our finger on the pulse of American philanthropy. Our reports will reveal the community’s voice with regards to your proposed initiative, allowing you the best chance of funding success.

Who We Serve

“We've had the privilege to work with small and large nonprofit organizations and associations across the country. From Ohio to Florida to New Mexico and beyond, The Hodge Group has helped organizations increase their impact. One specialty of ours is public-private partnerships. Most recently, we’ve been privileged to play a role in eight-figure capital campaigns involving a library in Illinois and a mental-health facility in Ohio. Russ understands the dynamic array of government tools that can supplement philanthropy, such as New Market Tax Credits, and has a rich appreciation for the synergies between public and private giving that allows communities to succeed.”

Personifying Your Organization as the Hero/Heroine in a Story of Recovery

Vice President Kim Horton, as part of Donor Search's "Masterminds" series, recently presented about how a non-profit can position itself toward successful, response messaging in our current environment. The presentation is built upon data our firm collected in 2020, when we spoke to almost 1,000 individuals about philanthropy and how it's been impacted by COVID-19, and is supplemented by information gathered from our national partners.
