I have been impressed with the abilities of Cynthia Wright as an accomplished professional in the university advancement field. Cynthia has exceptional communication skills in written and spoken form, and her proven expertise in grantwriting, donor cultivation, special events planning and advisory board development have provided her with a depth of experience that have served her well in her previous assignments.
I also observed her work in leading the advancement staff at California Baptist University, where she demonstrated a professionalism, a commitment to quality, a sensitivity to donors and a loyalty to institutions that I found to be commendable. She thus has my highest personal recommendation. She has also been an outstanding leader in the great Riverside community.

I am enthusiastically recommending Cynthia Wright as a potential consultant for your organization. Cynthia worked with me for more than ten years. In her position as Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement, she was an exceptional, proven, and successful development professional. She understands all aspects of advancement.
Cynthia has excellent written and verbal communication skills, is well organized, works well independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. In addition to setting up and writing our donor communications, Cynthia wrote and supervised most of our fundraising events. In addition to her development responsibilities was in charge of supervising the department. Cynthia effectively scheduled and managed personnel to maintain efficient office operations. Cynthia was always willing to offer her assistance and had an excellent rapport with the many constituents served by our office including but not limited to donors and professional organizations.
