Since its inception, Ronald LaRose & Associates has counseled numerous organizations in strategic planning and management, annual and capital campaigns, institutional audits and feasibility studies, major gift solicitation, leadership enlistment, program development, marketing and public relations.

The firm is comprised of seasoned professionals whose expertise lies in the ability to attract support for an institution with a limited or non-existent major gift or capital donor base.  Ronald LaRose & Associates is a hands-on firm that does the work rather than pass the work on to an often overworked or limited staff - the client manages.  In addition to offering campaign direction, the firm should be seen as an addition to an institution's development operation.  

Ronald LaRose & Associates counsels hospitals and health organizations, arts and cultural organizations, public broadcasting, colleges and universities, civic and human service agencies, environmental and religious groups.  The firm's clients are regional, national and international in scope.
