Sarah K. Moore, CFRE

Senior Consultant

Background & Expertise

Sarah brings a commitment to education and faith-based institutions that has spanned her 30-year career in development.  She has a diverse understanding of philanthropy as both a Development Director and as a professional fundraising consultant.  Her passion for helping the institutions that educate and enrich people both intellectually and spiritually has been recognized within the community with her innovative programs being used in schools and churches throughout Ohio.

Her management style is very hands on.  She understands the day-to-day demands of running a development office and has been instrumental in bringing an education-based model to religious institutions to increase their annual funds and offertories.

She has been able to incorporate the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ pastoral letter on stewardship into a program that makes time, talent and treasure a basis for fund raising in Catholic parishes.

Her philosophy is that she has been extremely blessed to find a profession that allows her to form long-term relationships and find a way to further the organization while fulfilling the dreams and wishes of an individual or family.

Sarah is a Columbus native. She received her BA degree from the University of Dayton and her MA from The Ohio State University.  She resides in Dublin with her husband and two daughters, Cecilia and Madelyn.
