Brooke Belott
Senior Consultant

For the past 10 years, I have worked in development at a range of non-profit organizations in New York City. I developed expertise in institutional grant writing, while also playing a role in strategic planning, board development, direct mail, individual giving, and database management. Additionally, I have worked as an editor and writer for various publications, as well as in digital production for an e-book collection.

I hold dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Dance from the University of Maryland, College Park, a combination which led me to early positions at an arts consulting firm and various arts organizations. I spent six years performing professionally with a dance company in DC, and then continued training and working with various artists in New York City, while pursuing a career in fundraising. I’ve worked with non-profit organizations with missions in the areas of dance, theatre, arts education, the environment, disabilities, youth development, and human services.

Most recently, I was Development Manager at GallopNYC, a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic horseback riding to children and adults with disabilities. I first came to the organization as a volunteer, and I was quickly hooked by the unique way the program uses horses to inspire people with disabilities to grow and achieve greater independence.

During my four years at GallopNYC, I helped the organization ramp up its fundraising and also served as the Salesforce system administrator. I became increasingly interested in Salesforce because I could see how it was helping myself and my colleagues become more effective as non-profit managers and fundraisers. Using this skillset, I helped GallopNYC streamline its processes, develop better fundraising analysis tools, and improve its program evaluation.

My growing interest in the intersection of non-profits and technology led me to join Heller Consulting in March 2014, where I am excited to continue helping non-profits make a powerful impact on their communities. I am also a Salesforce Certified Administrator.
