Marcy Heim, author, international speaker and development coach, shares Inspiring presentations and coaching to generate major philanthropy – artfully!

She holds the prestigious CASE Crystal Apple, the AFP Outstanding Fundraising Professional award and received her AFP Master Teacher designation.

She is author of, “Empowering Your Board to Serve as Effective Development Ambassadors” and is soon to release her second book, “Strengthening your C.O.R.E. in Advancement.” Marcy’s teaching is backed up by over twenty years as Senior Director, University of Wisconsin Foundation, where she managed constituency development staff and programs for a college unit completing a $50,000,000 campaign under her leadership.

In addition, Marcy coordinated the regional development efforts for the UW-Madison in the Pacific Northwest for 10 years throughout the UW’s successful $1.8 billion Campaign. Marcy’s firm, The Artful Asker provides group and individual coaching programs, board, faculty and staff major gift workshops and is unique in that it combines both the mindset, as well as the traditional methods needed for major gift success.
