PMA Consulting, LLC

Down Syndrome Assoc. of Charlotte

PMA worked with Down Syndrome Association of Charlotte in 2009 and 2010 to help them identify an optimal staffing design, source candidates for those positions and design a fundraising platform to help them advance the mission of the organization.

PMA conducted a full organizational assessment and led the board through a planning process that resulted in the hiring of two part-time positions – Program Director and Development Director. In late 2010, the organization’s Buddy Walk exceeded goal by more than 40% (from $80k to $140k), and the new staffing design and fundraising platform was credited as having made a big difference.


“It was been a pleasure working with Patton McDowell & Associates. We feel as though the Down Syndrome Association of Charlotte is well ahead of where we would have been had we gone it alone.

PMA’s counsel throughout the entire process was both prudent, but yet still forwarding thinking. We look forward to more opportunities to partner with PMA in the future.”
