BLB Consulting is committed to helping you develop a successful fundraising strategy and create a seamless event that invigorates your leadership and engages past, current and future supporters. We believe the best events are just one part of your cultivation pipeline and we creatively incorporate your organization's mission and uniqueness into every event element.


Blake Bradford, CFRE has over 25 years of professional fundraising experience working both in-house and as a consultant. Her background in arts-related funding, board development, grant writing and program creation paved the way to a broader focus on the non-profit sector nine years ago. This backdrop enables her to think in innovative ways about donor engagement, event storytelling and fundraising opportunities. She has worked with the majority of her clients for several years, allowing her to forge strong relationships with organizational leadership and provide an outsider’s eye along with an insider’s understanding. It is this insight that has helped her grow events and donor bases for her clients and guide them in establishing strategies to enrich their donor pipelines – elements vital for any non-profit that wants to continue to expand its breadth of work.​​​​

Blake was an integral and important member of our gala team. We greatly appreciated her astute guidance, attention to detail, and positive attitude throughout the planning process. Above all, she managed the whole spectrum of event logistics with complete calm and grace, allowing me to focus on our guests and not worry about anything else.

Thank you Blake for your professionalism and good humor.

It was an absolute delight to work with Blake and Nako on LIFT's 25th Anniversary Gala. I was impressed with all aspects of their work with us, including fundraising strategy, program planning, logistics and tracking, communicating with board members and donors, and above all, being calm, cool, and collected at all times, always displaying the utmost professionalism and genuine partnership. We look forward to working with them again on next year's event!

I not only enjoy working with them, I learn from them every day. I am grateful to Blake and her team for their cheerful attitudes, their vast expertise, and their endless dedication to making sure our event is the best it can be. I trust them deeply.
