About Hudson Ferris

With over 50 years of collective professional fundraising experience, we enable social impact leaders to secure the resources they need to implement their vision and achieve greater impact in the world. At Hudson Ferris, we create custom-tailored strategies to help nonprofits problem solve, grow, and achieve sustainability.


Hudson Ferris has a keen sense for unlocking fundraising potential within our clients’ reach. Our firm has raised millions of dollars for charities across every area of the nonprofit sector, including the arts, healthcare, advocacy, environment and international development, just to name a few. Senior staff have held executive development positions at many of New York City’s premier institutions such as Playwrights Horizons, The Public Theater, Bellevue Hospital, and The New York Botanical Garden.

We provide the highest level of professional development services designed to help your organization grow and thrive. Clients often come to us during leadership transitions, on the brink of a growth chapter or looking to diversify funding streams, and we establish sustainable development systems and custom solutions that work in the near- and long-terms. Our team works around the clock to solve your challenges and execute winning fundraising plans.

We can function as your outsourced development operation or provide strategic oversight on a major project or campaign. We will work with leadership at all levels, liaise with your Board, and build the infrastructure your team needs. Our goal is to help clients see a quick return on their investment so they can sustain their programs, hire in-house development staff, and advance to the next level in its growth trajectory.
