Success Stories

Dionne is absolutely fabulous when it comes to fundraising for the arts! She leveraged Reichhold Center for the Arts as a cultivation tool for university donors and helped secure new grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the Brabson Library & Educational Foundation.

Dionne has the ability to easily inspire and offer positive recognition while holding her teams accountable at all times. She is a wonderful mentor who “invites stakeholders to the conversation.” She is an ambitious leader who created a team infrastructure and had the vision and initiative to create a strategic plan that will take our team from $22M to $50M annually.

JEN FUGES, Director, Philadelphia Region, Lehigh University

While colleagues at a state university, I witnessed Dionne’s commitment to her profession. Her tireless work ethic, subject matter expertise, and determination allow her to successfully forge relationships with donors while strengthening the bonds between an institution and its community.

In addition to being extremely bright and hard-working, Dionne is an absolute delight to work with: polite, good-humored, utterly reliable, articulate, and kind. We collaborated closely on an effort to secure Vassar’s first corporate sponsor for a dance residency, and Dionne’s presentation to the Bank of America representatives was one of the most professional and compelling I have ever seen—a model of clarity and liveliness.

Dionne Jackson is a creative, visionary fundraising professional. Her work ethic is strong, as is her desire for success. While at Lehigh she was pro-active in reaching goals. Her team was one of the top producers within our Development office. She also oversaw the creation of a six-year strategic plan to double the team’s output from $22M to $50M each year.
