Reinier has helped the team in a relatively short period of time to find their belief in achievable and ambitious results. With his knowledge of how to raise funds he was a huge asset at a time when the team really needed help. What I liked about Reinier is that he is not an outsider. But from day 1 he is really part of the team - he connects and genuinely shares enthusiasm for the goals of the organization. And is clear and sincere about what should and needs to be done. Thanks Reinier, and we will see you again in our new office!
Together with Reinier Oranje Fonds has developed an excellent private fundraising strategy and plan for the coming five years. We can now invest based on a strategy that combines individual giving fundraising principles with our mission, and the possibilities and opportunities within Oranje Fonds. Reinier truly lives up to the mission of “The Future of Fundraising” every single day. Furthermore, I really enjoyed working with Reinier. He is not just a great consultant; he is also a very pleasant and fun colleague. Honestly, he was the best sparring partner I’ve had in more than a decade! I would recommend him to every fundraising organisation.
Reinier started working with our team at UNHCR as a senior advisor in 2017. As a new office in a crowded fundraising landscape, Reinier offered us a fresh insight and a positively critical lens that has helped us mature in a rapid speed. Reinier excels in bringing teams to a higher level, particularly when it comes to analysing data, diving into the true meaning of donor loyalty and continuously asking the right strategic questions. In doing so, Reinier always maintains a strong sense of professionalism as well as an open and constructive attitude. I will never look at our numbers in the same way and I have Reinier to thank for that!
I asked Reinier to help me out with an almost impossible interim job. Leading the fundraising team, developing the yearly fundraising plan (based on the strategy he developed earlier on), and helping to find the best head of fundraising out there. He managed to deliver on all three of them in just a few months time. Reinier is one of those rare individuals who knows everything there is to know about his craft fundraising. And he is willing to share it all with a contagious enthusiasm. Combined with his likeable personality makes working with Reinier a great pleasure.
Reinier has assisted us, Stichting Vluchteling, to develop a plan to professionalize our fundraising department. Reinier proved to be an experienced, skilled and pleasant colleague. We’re still trying to convince Reinier to come and work for us, which will underline we wholeheartedly can recommend Reinier to you.
Reinier is not just highly skilled in fundraising, he is also a strong manager. In the middle of the reorganization at Oxfam Novib, he was staying calm in a very hectic environment. He was well aware of the needs of the team and at the same time Reinier used his fundraising skills to contribute to the public engagement strategy. He also managed the development of the new multiple year targets in his final month. He was a pleasure to work with and I can highly recommend him.
Reinier has been very instrumental in the analysis of our fundraising capabilities. He mapped the situation quickly, came with clear and powerful recommendations and has been a great help in rolling them out. We also asked Reinier to train staff and recruit a new head of fundraising. It was a great pleasure working with him and I will not hesitate to call on him if necessary. I warmly recommend Reinier Spruit.
Reinier’s work at MSF (Artsen zonder Grenzen) has been outstanding. With a creative approach to fund-raising he and his team were responsible for sustained income growth in new and existing markets, allowing MSF to expand its medical humanitarian activities.
