“Our clients devote a significant portion of their time to do something about making a positive difference. When you work with people with that as their primary motivation, the work is always meaningful.”
Eric Javier is a principal and managing director with a diverse portfolio of clients across the nonprofit spectrum, working on more than 200 major fundraising initiatives since joining CCS in 1998. He has a specialized focus in both higher education and independent schools, as well as Jewish organizations. He’s also assisted several well-known institutions in healthcare, arts and culture, and social services with raising funds to support their needs.
“It’s important to remind yourself that even though the work can be really challenging, that the ultimate goal, the reason why we’re all doing this, is to make a positive impact. Philanthropy is really the fuel that makes so many positive and good things happen in the world,” says Eric.
Eric frequently speaks at professional conferences, including the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). He has also designed and facilitated numerous training courses at CCS on major donor cultivation and solicitation, prospect management, and proposal development.
Eric currently resides in Westchester, NY with his wife Kristin and their two daughters.
