Mark Marshall

Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Owner

During Mark Marshall’s 30+ years in nonprofit and philanthropic leadership, he’s worked with many of the great organizations in higher education, healthcare, human services, and others across the nonprofit landscape. For him, philanthropy is ennobling and powerful in its ability “to help donors see what they can do in the world and help organizations to inspire donors to act—both are incredible ways to help make the world a better, kinder, more just place.”

After several years as a team leader at BWF, Mark joined the BWF principal team as an owner. Mark is fiercely proud of the company that BWF has become and continues to strive to reach new heights.  In his role, he provides leadership to the consulting teams and designing a comprehensive approach to meet and exceed client needs and expectations.

At the firm, Mark’s focus is on comprehensive/capital campaigns, strategic planning, leadership and team coaching, and institutional/organizational growth through philanthropy. Many of his projects have culminated in helping organizations achieve transformational growth by figuring out how to achieve their full potential, push limits in a sustainable manner, and create a bold vision that inspires others.
