How I Can Help

Fundraising & Communications

From capital campaigns to grant applications, from crowdfunding to direct mail, I bring decades of expertise to help you craft and implement a successful growth plan for your organization.

Impact Strategy

The first step toward transformational change is strategy. I utilize a dynamic tension model to guide your team to create a comprehensive, multi-year strategy that will be operationalized into annual plans.

Project Management

Projects come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a social entrepreneur in need of an execution specialist or an NGO in need of a brand refresh, I bring the core approach of human-centered design to project and program management.


What People Say

I worked with Gita as a member of the same Individual Giving Leadership Team at CARE. Gita did a wonderful job of developing a strong case for support for CARE’s new Impact Fund, demonstrating to donors and strategic partners exactly how their unrestricted, flexible funding supported CARE projects and program beneficiaries throughout the developing world. This good work on Gita’s part enabled our major gifts team to raise more and more unrestricted revenue annually, and it brought our donors and partners more closely to CARE through insightful, thoughtful, and detail-oriented illustrations of direct impact.

Tom Hanschman

Gita and I worked very closely together at CARE. She’s articulate, bright, and an excellent colleague. Gita is without question one of the kindest and most considerate people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, all while also being a creative and positive influence on her colleagues. She sees the big picture of her job, and is able to help influence others in thinking similarly. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Gita for a position. She’s a true joy!
