Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team
(Buenos Aires & New York)
To mark the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team’s 20-year anniversary in 2005, Rachel conducted a development study by interviewing primary foundation funders in the United States and Europe. Her written report analyzed the organization’s appeal to donors and the feasibility of launching an individual donor program. During 2006 and 2008, Rachel’s work included identifying and making personal introductions and appeals to foundation and individual prospects who became major donors, initiating an individual “Match” program for MacArthur Foundation funds, and advising on organization’s ongoing fundraising initiatives.
"I’ve known Rachel since 1989 when we met during a Human Rights Watch Monitors dinner, and over the years at various other events she was directing for HRW. I was always amazed by her ability to connect people, always in a very gracious and interesting way. Working with her as a consultant since then, Rachel’s counsel has helped the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (EAAF) in formulating a variety of fundraising strategies for our work and obtaining funds. We’ve appreciated her ability to think of the field from several different angles, and in leading us to consider new sources or approaches to donors. Her advice has been always incisive, clearly laid out, and consistently offers useful insight into the intricacies of the fundraising world. Rachel’s work with EAAF has left us very satisfied."
