"MINDset is a transformational partner for leading non-profits who want data-driven
results and a commitment to the bottom line. As a former client, I truly understand the impact this can have on a partnership and how it benefits clients. I am delighted to be a part of the MINDset team," said Kirchoff.
Kristin McCurry, Founding Principal of MINDset, said "Like most of our staff, Karin has
deeply valuable experience in the commercial sector and for advocacy groups, as
well as on the agency side. This, along with her leadership and expertise in integration and enterprise-wide strategy, make her a perfect fit for MINDset and our clients."
MINDset direct, a woman-owned practice located in
Arlington, Virginia, was recently acquired from the CDR Fundraising Group. MINDset is dedicated to guiding non-profit organizations as they build deeper donor commitment through innovative strategies and effective communication. Utilizing the "new currency" of donor needs, preferences and communication and relying on the power of data, MINDset helps leading-edge non-profits like St Jude Children's Research Hospital, United Cerebral Palsy and AARP Foundation to identify, understand and influence the dynamics of donor groups in order to drive higher value relationships.
