Allison Willner founded and leads CCS Fundraising’s Systems practice area, partnering with complex organizations to holistically analyze fundraising operations and assess the integrity of key development workflows.
Centered on ‘data in practice’, her work evaluates the ability of client systems and processes to support effective, impactful development programs – given where each organization is now, and where they aim to grow. A strong believer in the power of storytelling, she helps clients take ownership of their data narratives and create clear sight lines from individual activity to big-picture goals.
Allison has an MBA from Columbia Business School, and a BA in creative writing from SUNY Binghamton. She loves good coffee, magical realism, unusual houseplants, and making data visualizations for fun.
