what clients say

Professionals and Trustees who have worked with Drury Associates will say:

Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts
“Eleanor has served as counsel to The Bushnell for more than 10 years, providing expertise in capital and planned giving with an emphasis on major gifts development. In addition, she conducted the feasibility study and coached
our most recently completed capital campaign, which exceeded its $45 million goal. Eleanor has been an invaluable resource to the growth of The Bushnell’s development program. On a personal level, she is a delight to work with. She is articulate, bright, and humorous. She has inspired the trust and confidence of both our staff and Board. ”
Ronna Reynolds, Executive Vice President, Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts

Luftig Evans Non-Profit Solutions
“In today’s competitive fundraising environment, you need the best person possible to lead you. Eleanor Drury is
that person. Having worked with her on numerous projects over the past 15 years...I can’t think of any professional better in the industry to work with.”
Douglas C. Evans, Principal, Luftig Evans Non-Profit Solutions

Hilbert College
“Eleanor played a key role in guiding Hilbert College through the application process for a Kresge Challenge grant. Securing the Kresge Foundation matching grant was ultimately the leverage we needed to successfully complete
our capital campaign.”
Cynthia Zane, President, Hilbert College

American Red Cross
“A decade ago, our chapter of the American Red Cross was chosen to be the lead for financial development in the state of Connecticut. Our task was two-fold: to move our chapter from an historic dependence on events and direct mail to a true gift planning program and to work with the other chapters to improve their programs. Eleanor Drury
did a complete development make-over working with paid and volunteer staff to achieve an understanding and
involvement of our new course of action. The time she gave to the other chapters was invaluable. Combining her experience and professionalism with hard work, we were successful. We could not have done this without her.”
Janet Filling, Executive Director (ret.), Mid-Fairfield Chapter, American Red Cross
