Paul has advised hundreds of clients on nonprofit management and capital campaigns. As a result, he's worked on fundraising goals ranging from $1 million to multi-billions. Because Paul believes in "hands-on" counsel, he has made more than 4,000 personal solicitation calls. Consequently, the gifts have ranged from $1,000 to $100 million.
