Consulting & Coaching Testimonials

Thank you so much, Robin,

I enjoy our calls and all of your help. You are helping me to start a new pattern in my operations. That I will use for years to come. Thank you.
I am putting notes up where I can see them now.

Your professionalism and wisdom were a plus for the PEARSON Foundation!  All the best!

OMG, it is like you are reading my mind – the pdf resource you shared is EXACTLY what I need, and just when I need it. Thank you so much!

Thank you for everything you have done for Taylor. Getting Taylor Community on the path for development was huge!…and not easy. You are a joy. — Susan ( Denopoulos) Abrami

I wanted to send a note to express how much I appreciate what you are doing for our organization and who you are as our development professional. You bring a depth and wealth of experience to our institution that I not only admire but we so desperately need. I don’t take for granted how organized you are helping us become, and how well you manage your Associate to be efficient and effective on our behalf.

I would recommend you to anyone. Your audit last year was fantastic and is really helping me with my development plan. We have a lot to do here but you have put us in the right direction.

I have worked with Ms. Cabral for a couple of years. She conducted an audit of my former organization and when I moved on and realized my new organization needed her expertise and I commissioned her for our development audit. She has the knowledge and organizational skills to put a wavering board and agency on track in the area of development and best practices. Her process of identifying challenges and strengths works as she creates a document that you would not want to sit on the shelf. She also offers support to walk you through her recommendations and projections. She responds quickly and professionally via e-mail and teleconferencing. She is sharp and keeps herself informed about the most recent trending practices in development.

Robin is an absolute pleasure to work with. So patient and talented.

I thought it was incredible that she “met” with me literally in the middle of the night for her, as she is currently stuck in Australia. Bless her…it was 3:30 in the morning for her when we spoke, and she was rocking it out like it was the middle of the day. Just an extra note of praise for her dedication to her work and appreciation from me for compromising precious sleep for our time together! 🙂

Adding to the chorus!  It has been a great partnership, and I have learned so much from working with all of you.
And yes, I look forward to the future together.

Through her development audit, she provided us with the long-term vision for our fund development efforts. She helped us to see the big picture and provided us with a blueprint for moving forward.

Many thanks! To our surprise, without any kind of ask at all, just an envelope enclosed-to date we have received $10,208.40! We mailed to about 600 and have received returns from 152. One donation was for $2,000-That is the largest single donation we have ever received!

Robin L. Cabral is one of the most dedicated professionals that I know. She is driven by results. Dedicated to the cause.

This is a darn good direct mail appeal letter. We make a great team together.

Robin Cabral is an amazing, professional fundraiser with a winning attitude who commands results!

Refreshing to have an outside perspective of your work!

Great facilitator!

I think our organization should be proud of this effort and approach to planning for the future!

I am heartened that our strategic plan will be solid and well crafted, due to your diligence and commitment.

We have had a great response to our campaign.  I did some face to face that resulted in a $15,000 gift, and we are presently at $105,350 on our $102,000 goal.

Congrats, your application to Amelia Peabody for EMR was funded. Thank you!

Just wanted you to know how impressed I am with your responsiveness. It is quite unusual, and most appreciated.

It was a pleasure to speak with you, and we’re confident you are the person to map out the path ahead for our organization. Looking forward to our next meeting.

I so loved working with you and realizing all the blogs and workshops and web meetings I’ve been inhaling over the last two years at least allow me to understand fully what you are saying!

Your report today was comprehensive, on the money, and will help us focus our development efforts in the right direction.

I couldn’t be happier. Here’s to a long and prosperous partnership!

Thanks for all you do, Robin. I tell you, I sleep better each night AND have actually FINISHED two novels!
xoxo the happy camper

Thank you so much for all of your hard work, you did a great job last night and it was truly appreciated! I can say I was inspired by it to truly look at how I carry on, not just in regards to the organization but in all aspects, so thank you!

This case for support is a monumental and fantastic asset to our organization. It will pay dividends. Great job Robin.

Thanks Robin. What would we do without you.

We were blessed with a very dedicated development consultant, Robin Cabral, who has been working with us for the past six months and developed our fund development plan. Robin is now helping us implement that ambitious plan.

This case for support document is fantastic and strong and will be SO effective!!!

Thanks so much for your excellent organization and direction.

The results have been pretty unbelievable for us, believe me!

I’m most thankful this year for having such a wonderful development guru ALWAYS on tap and teaching and leading the Friends on the path to “Best little non-profit in New Beffa”

Thank you, Robin. We are so grateful that you have joined us to further this very important work. I can’t begin to imagine what it would be like without you there.

Robin, in only 7 months, has managed to not only get our very uneducated board on a more professional track but also increased our revenue 200%! She is ORGANIZED. She explains her plans clearly. She writes beautifully. She is always prompt in answering my many emailed questions. We have never had ANY paid help in our 30 years but I knew it was time and I am so thankful we found Robin…she is a perfect fit and is leading us on our first capital campaign, and trust me, without her we would not be even considering such big project!
To sum up my feelings… Robin is what I’m most thankful for this Thanksgiving! I have “a life” back as she has taken such a big burden of leadership off my shoulders.

You have been a godsend to us. I cannot thank you enough for filling the breach, and doing it so brilliantly.

God bless you for all your efforts to help us end our year strong. You are a great lady with terrific ideas. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction. You are a wonderful woman!

Thanks so much for todays session. I think it was helpful to hear your input….definitely! I left the meeting with our Campaign Chair and he walked out saying he really thought this was a good use of our time and it’s apparent that we have to stay focused on the A list askers and prospects….and actually do some asks!!

I feel so much more confident about fundraising this year with your help.

Thank you so much again for your help, this has been, truly, an incredible learning experience. With your help, we’ll have the funding to afford your services again in the near future, to reach even greater goals! I feel so much more at ease with having a plan in place.

I have worked with Robin for over a year at our organization. We brought her on to help us with fundraising and development. She is the consummate pro in her field and has extensive experience with faith-based organizations.

Thank you, Robin for all you have done. You are a delight to work with.

Thank you for your dedication to our mission! We are eternally grateful for the progress we’ve made as an organization building our culture of philanthropy–we could not have done it with your guidance, patience, persistence, and prayer.

You definitely brought us true value, which we’ve found to be extremely difficult to find in this area, and I want to thank you for all your hard work and time.

Great proposal, Robin! I don’t know how you found the time to put this together, but we are very grateful that you did. If approved, this will allow us to move forward with our plan!

You have been of inestimable value to the organization.

Thanks Robin,

I am deeply encouraged by your coaching — my hopefulness of growing is increasing.

You are an amazing coach. I would not have been able to go very far without you. Thank you for your patience, understanding and kindness.

I have been fortunate enough to work with Robin as a coach for the past year.  During that time she has been my strongest advocate, my go-to for all things fundraising and my sounding board for a variety of challenges.  Robin’s coaching has given me the courage to take the necessary steps to begin moving towards all my career goals.  I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today without all her help, encouragement and faith.

So it’s going well I think we might be getting …spoiled!!! Your coaching is invaluable!  Connecting donor’s passion with our vision.

Robin is very helpful, patient and a great teacher/coach.

I have the best coach ever!!

The reason I checked they should choose a different coach is because I don’t want to lose her. 🙂 She’s incredible!! NFG should use her to train your other coaches. I can’t say enough praises for the work she does – this is her wheel house.

Actually I’d give her a 10 not a 5 – she is one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. You would do well to ask her to train your other coaches.

I love my coach! She is an amazing teacher.

Robin is amazing and helps me so much. She’s a great teacher….

Robin is very black and white when it comes to setting goals and staying on plan. I like her approach very much.

Robin made me feel very comfortable.

Robin is the best…she is so willing to show me step by step when I have a problem or don’t understand.

Robin is very patient and understanding.

Easy to talk to, knowledgeable and had done homework to know more about our organization in advance of our first talk.

She listens, challenges, offers insights, holds me accountable and shares her notes of our session. I always go away challenged to More, and encouraged to keep pressing on and taking risks.

Robin is terrific!

Honestly 10 minutes in I knew I choose the best coach for us. Robin is a perfect fit.

She is the best!!

She is the best – seriously. This is not hyperbole. She listens, understands, challenges, helps, and gives me our session notes, follows up, checks in, – Thank You!! for hiring her. A huge difference from my previous coach.

She walks me through those issues that I have problems with. I have learned so much!

Robin is always very helpful and patient.

Robin is stuck in Australia, slammed, and made room for us in her schedule (in the middle of the night for her!) to give us an emergency coaching session. We serve seniors who are at high risk in the pandemic, and had an urgent need. EVERYTHING about what she is doing for us is spectacular.

What’s NOT spectacular about Robin?!

This work can feel so overwhelming but Robin has helped break it down into actionable small things to get done.

You gave us a much-needed shift in our thinking. Well worth our time and investment.

I can’t thank you enough for your time with DATMA. You’ve taught me a lot and helped me become more courageous in approaching donors. Thank you for your willingness to get to know DATMA.  I couldn’t have been happier than to have support from DCS during COVID… so crazy, but you guys were reassuring and helped us work through this bizarre time. We are really pleased with your work and hope to engage another contract in the next 6 months or sooner.

I am really glad that we engaged with you for our upcoming grant and it is such a relief to have the final part done with 4 days to go!

This time around it has been exciting and rewarding to be able to help add the finishing touches of information.

I had lots of ideas in my head and you helped me to put them in order.

You helped me to realize that if the Board is not part of the goal-setting process, they won’t own the process.
