Planned Parenthood Arizona is the largest sexual health organization in the state, serving thousands of people each year. The organization promotes and protects every person’s freedom and right to enjoy sexual health and well-being, to make reproductive choices, and build healthy, strong families. Planned Parenthood Arizona has three core focuses:
Health Care: PP Arizona’s health centers are comfortable places to go for honest information and compassionate care.
Education: The organization offers unbiased, comprehensive programs for teens and parents – that convey accurate information from many different points of view – to increase positive health outcomes for young people.
Advocacy: Planned Parenthood has a strong tradition of protecting sexual health rights and defending the freedom of all people, particularly focusing on women, people of color and LGBTQ folks. PP Arizona is firm in its positions and fierce in its arguments, striving to always be respectful of all.

Brittany was seeking our help to navigate these unusual and shifting circumstances while keeping the team focused on ambitious fundraising goals.
By leading and integrating ourselves into PP Arizona’s development team, and by serving as a strategic partner to CEO Brittany Fonteno, we were able to achieve the following over the course of the engagement (which was extended from two months to a total of four months):
With an effective and engaged development team in place, Planned Parenthood Arizona is deeply committed to securing the resources it needs to help ensure reproductive health and freedom in the state, now and in the future.
I am so grateful for Development Guild’s partnership as our interim management. Their consultant became a true member of our development team right away. With minimal direction, they were able to form strong relationships with our staff, provide stability and guidance, and have a very positive impact. I really appreciated their ability to take note of what our team needed and offer help proactively. They made a time of transition much smoother for us all.
