The Bridge Over Troubled Waters (TBOTW)is dedicated to providing services to victims of domestic violence; it is one of the largest facilities in Texas by the volume of people they care for and serve. TBOTW retained Dini Spheris to plan and launch an $8.7 million quick-response campaign for a much-needed new shelter. The resulting campaign plan devised a phased strategy while deepening its donor relationships and widening the prospect pool. Dini Spheris shepherded the TBOTW team of volunteers and staff through a successful campaign, supported by a strong push from the Kresge Foundation and a challenge grant that TBOTW was able to leverage in the community. Dini Spheris has partnered again with TBOTW to serve as campaign counsel as they look to expand this campus to reach the growing demand for dedicated space for children and youth. TBOTW has launched the $9M A Bridge for Kids campaign and has been granted another challenge grant, this time by the Mabee Foundation, which will be an impetus and drive for the campaign’s success.
