View from 30,000 feet

You’re most likely to find Clinton Crow cruising at 35,000 feet, music on, gadgets out, planning his next big fundraising venture. Each year, Crow logs 150,000 air miles (the equivalent of circumnavigating the globe six times), helping organizations reach goals, change lives, and shape the future.

Known for his positive attitude, enthusiasm, and personal attention, Crow partners with colleges, universities, and other non-profits to build successful, impactful fundraising strategies to yield scores of new donors and dollars.

Crow’s interest in fundraising sparked in 1992 during his freshman year at Alma College, when a phonathon sign caught his attention. He applied, was hired, and named the school’s top student caller four years in a row.

After graduation, Crow worked first with Central Michigan University and, later, Spring Hill College. He was then hired by IDC/Harris Connect, where he rose through the ranks to oversee and manage annual campaign planning, design, and execution with nearly fifty different non-profit clients.

Crow Fundraising Concepts, based in Denver, CO, is his latest venture.

More about me

I was born and raised in Wellston, Michigan (population: 300). During high school and college, I honed my people skills as a radio DJ, teacher’s aid for migrant children, bus boy, landscaper, and night manager at an A&W Restaurant, where I developed my love of frosty root beer.

I’m a foodie and love trying new recipes. I also enjoy music, spending time with family and friends, walking my rescue dog, Duke, going to sporting events and theme parks, and enjoying the Rocky Mountains.
