Learn More about Me
Hi! I’m Kattie and this is Black Burro Creative. I am honored to work with so many incredible clients. My goal is to help each client find more customers, donors, and supporters by creating quality content, websites, and experiences. I specialize in nonprofit consulting, fundraising, and marketing. I can work with any organization and just about any budget.
Prior to starting Black Burro Creative in January 2022, I served as the development director for MCPAWS, a nonprofit animal shelter in McCall, Idaho for 8 1/2 years. My work with MCPAWS included overseeing every aspect of fundraising and marketing. During my time at MCPAWS, I managed all the social media, advertising, media relations, special events, grants, and fundraising. We raised over $4 million in donations, grants, and special event revenue. I also started a monthly giving program which will continue to generate sustainable income for the organization for years to come.
Prior to my time with MCPAWS, I worked in development for multiple nonprofits and in marketing for several for profit businesses. From food banks to river conservation and retail; my past experience is diverse. I currently have over 15 years experience in marketing, fundraising, event planning, and media relations. In 2001, I graduated with honors from San Diego State University with a B.A. in journalism and a minor in Spanish. It is important to continue my education and I have completed several courses and trainings in marketing, fundraising, and development over that past several years and I continue to educate myself on latest trends in social media marketing, website development, and fundraising strategy.
The name Black Burro Creative is in honor of my dog Jake; a 120 pound Lab/Great Dane mix who had the nickname “Donkey” since he was a just an 80-pound puppy. Unfortunately Jake passed away in 2022, but his memory lives on in my heart and in my business.
Please feel free to reach out to me for a consultation. I’d love to chat about ways I can help you find more donors or customers!
