All things public
For most, the connection between the public and private worlds is distinct and well defined; however, for those who operate in that reality, that definition is more dynamic than clear. Whether it be in a for-profit business, not-for-profit, or an institutional setting, the importance of fund development, financial management, and relationship-building is vital to organizational success. At Totem, we strive to establish that value by planning, engaging, and adapting, so that our clients can maximize the benefit of that public-private connection – and focus on what they do best.
