“It’s my personal mission to make the world a better place one database at a time.”

Mary Hackett has a keen understanding of how established fundraising operations support and elevate the work of the entire development office. When data and procedures are properly structured and utilized, fundraising staff are aligned and working from a united foundation.

Mary operates Alford Analytics and Alford Diagnostics, providing deep insights into donors, trends and gaps in giving, fundraising programs and infrastructure that inform organizational decision making. She also works shoulder-to-shoulder with clients on their data migrations, builds complex campaign reports, performs database clean-up, develops processes for database management and writes customized manuals.

Fun Fact: Mary and her husband (and their dogs Matt and Debra) have traveled to 34 states in their RV.
