Who I'm Working With

Thrilled to be collaborating with these wonderful organizations!

  • Creative Abundance Group
  • My Possibilities
  • NOAH HOMES
  • BTR LIVERPOOL
  • Biblica
Creative Abundance Consulting is fortunate to have forged a partnership with the foremost expert in the field of disability resource development in the country. Our fundraising partner, Linda Smith is an icon in the fund-raising, community relations and developments arenas. Linda has raised over $450 million for disability organizations in her storied career. She has pioneered cutting-edge development processes, board development techniques and multi-million dollar signature events. She is fearless and fabulous and we are proud to have her on our team.

What People Are Saying...

  • “What Linda has done for our community, and on a larger scale, the community of those living with intellectual disabilities, is just astonishing. I am not a religious man, but this woman should be sainted.”

    Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller
  • "Linda is one of the most extraordinary development leaders in the US. Her stories about how non-profits and their boards can connect with funders, all while making the process enjoyable, are unlike any you’ll hear. I highly recommend her to speak and engage with any group who wants to strengthen their non-profit, their board and/or their fundraising process. She puts the fun in fundraising!"

  • "The first thing you learn when meeting Linda Smith is that “no” is not an option…and “yes” is not enough."

    Steve Wynn
  • "Linda is to Las Vegas as Dorothy is to the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion."

  • "Linda Smith has been a wonderful addition to the Noah Homes Development team in her role as consultant. Her dynamic style and her demands that we "think big" and value what we have thus far created, resonated into more fundraising dollars generated in the short time she has been with us. I appreciate her energy, enthusiasm, and her never ending ideas! We have embraced her philosophy and are on the road to smarter fundraising and collaboration within our community. So glad she has become a part of the Noah Homes family."

  • "I would highly recommend Linda as a speaker, lecturer or moderator for anything having to do with fundraising, life skills, coaching or leadership."

    Robin Joyce
  • "In just the 30 minutes that I heard Linda speak, I learned more about what to do, what to say, and what not to do and what not to say as well! I was so encouraged by her!"

  • Linda Smith is a consumate philanthropic professional who leads by example.  I found myself captivated from beginning to end by her scope of knowledge and strategy, her charisma and her motivational style. Impactful, inspirational, memorable!
