Holmes, Radford & Avalon approaches each of our clients with individual attention, respecting their particular needs and desired outcomes. Our company name is, in part, homage to Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous detective. In much the same manner that Holmes and his faithful accomplice, Dr. Watson, approach each case with a keen eye for detail and an understanding that we must always be thinking outside of the box, our firm is committed to tailoring a course of action that will most effectively suit your needs.
Good ideas and great programs don't just happen. To go from vision to reality takes planning, hard work and resources; both human and financial. Successful development programs utilize a variety of fund raising methods that can provide those resources. Major campaigns, annual funds and endowment building programs can help institutions meet operational and capital needs. HRA will help you develop fund raising plans appropriate for your agency, various constituencies, community and clients. Together we can help make your institutional vision a reality by helping meet financial goals and purposes.
In a world increasingly filled with choices, we seek to maintain with honor the integrity of the clients with which we work. At Holmes, Radford & Avalon, we ask that you trust us with the success of your organization, knowing that if you don’t succeed, then we believe that we don’t succeed. As proof of the value of those virtues, more than 85 percent of our business come from referrals from current or former clients.
