With the continued strategic expansion of our portfolio of services to serve North Carolina’s and the region’s nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, Armstrong McGuire & Associates is excited to welcome veteran nonprofit professional Jeff Hensley to our team.
Jeff brings more than 20 years of experience building the fiscal capacity of nonprofits, educational institutions, and churches. His fundraising expertise includes annual and planned giving, strategic planning, major gifts solicitation, corporate/foundation relations, crowdfunding initiatives and social media fundraising, proposal writing, and capital campaign planning and implementation.
Jeff completed his undergraduate studies at Wheaton College and his graduate studies at Yale. Prior to becoming a development professional, Jeff taught theology/religious studies for nearly a decade at both the university (Baylor) and seminary (Virginia Theological Seminary) levels. He served as a fellow at the Erasmus Institute at the University of Notre Dame and has held fellowships from the Pew Charitable Trust, the Lilly Endowment, and the Wabash Center for Religion and Theology. He is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP), and currently serves on two nonprofit boards. He is also a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE).
“Jeff’s unique experiences in theological studies are a perfect complement to our work with faith communities, educational institutions, faith-led nonprofits, and clients needing Jeff’s blend of experiences and expertise,” said founding principal Bert Armstrong. “We are honored to add another extraordinary professional to the Armstrong McGuire team.”
