Client Case Study

SGO Society of Gynecologic Oncology

Society of Gynecologic Oncology

In 2012, ADS was retained by the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO), a sub-specialty medical association, to implement a proactive fundraising program that would provide sustainable non-dues revenue well into the future. Over the course of the next three years, ADS worked with SGO to raise nearly $4 million in support from members, corporate partners, and other stakeholders.

Because of the tremendous vision of SGO’s leadership and staff, they are now poised for continued fundraising success as they pursue their goals.
