    Kathleen, I had meant to compliment you on your presentation…..(You) are within a category of people who combine personal passion and capability with your understanding of the organization.

  • Stephen K. Orr, Managing Partner and Co-Founder, Orr Associates, Inc. (OAI)

    Kathleen brings a perspective that is unique and highly valued by nonprofit partners.  Much of that respect is based on her ability to listen and then contribute in a manner that fully recognizes the recipient’s concerns and challenges.  A great advisor/partner listens carefully, quickly assesses the need, and leans into the problem with productive solutions.  Kathleen epitomizes this process.

  • Martha Johnson, Former Administrator, GSA (General Services Administration)

    A game changer, Kathleen understands the dimensions and demands of transformation.  She is deeply intuitive and instinctive with others, recognizing the challenges each individual will face.  She speaks with grace and authority whether she is with one person or talking to a room of 100, clarifying, challenging and celebrating as need be.

  • Matthew T. Lambert, Vice President for University Advancement, William & Mary

    In an era of declining alumni participation and greater dispersion of philanthropy, colleges and universities need to redouble efforts to engage all members of the alumni body, particularly since many institutions have historically underserved women.  Doing this successfully requires thoughtful and intentional design and execution, but it begins with training and re-training staff who may not know how to do this effectively.  Kathleen Loehr is, quite simply, the expert in women’s philanthropy and she worked with me and our executive leadership team in advancement to design and execute a first-rate training for our entire team.  Kathleen’s training model helped our advancement leadership first to learn and apply a highly effective whole-systems model and then for all of our advancement staff to commit to a well understood and agreed upon direction for women’s philanthropy at the university, together with a systemic, detailed plan of action to achieve this.

    Kathleen has a deep history and expertise in women’s philanthropy. She approaches the work holistically, working with both the women and institutions so as to tap into the growing resources that women have to offer. I’ve been pleased and proud to recommend her because she is thoughtfully building on the work that Sondra Shaw-Hardy and I started. In addition, Kathleen is addressing the integrated and practical behaviors and metric conversations needed today for successful and sustained women’s philanthropy across the country.
