What People Are Saying About Us

Don't just take it from us, let our clients do the talking!


With the help of Wingo NYC Parity was able to double our budget and move from a mismatched, uncoordinated fundraising strategy to a consistent, thoughtful development plan. Without the comprehensive and kind support of the Wingo team we would never have been able to move into a new area of growth and effectiveness, making a huge difference in our particular field. We would recommend the Wingo team to any group looking to learn, streamline and reduce their anxiety around fundraising.

Rev. John Russell Stranger
Executive Director

Your knowledge, enthusiasm, wisdom, and stellar sense of humor provides a clear standard of excellence and integrity for your clients, donors, and prospects – it also makes it a lot of fun to work with you too!

The Wingo team is fantastic to work with! With their help, we more than doubled our fundraising total from our most recent year-end appeal compared to last year. I highly recommend Wingo NYC to any social justice org!

When the Dutchess County Council on the Arts needed to step up its fundraising, Doug Wingo and his team helped us identify where we needed to build capacity and worked with our staff and trained volunteers to help us get there. More importantly, they were just a pleasure to work with: easygoing, supportive, tough when needed, and professional. I would absolutely work with Doug and his team again.

Wingo ushered the Bronx River Alliance into a new stage of donor relations. Doug took us step by step through the process of creating a membership program, and coached us to strengthen our relationships with major donors.  He and his team are unfailingly positive, helpful and reassuring.

Wingo helped Lambda Literary institute a more rigorous program around our major donor and corporate fundraising efforts, supported by very professional development materials that clearly communicate our mission and priorities.  By leading strategy discussions around our organization's goals and objectives, Wingo created a customized development approach to support our work on behalf of LGBTQ readers, writers, librarians, booksellers and publishers.
