Moira Kavanagh Crosby


Moira Kavanagh Crosby is president and founder of MKDM, a full-service direct response agency that works exclusively with nonprofits to engage donors, motivate action and inspire philanthropy. With the exception of one misguided year in advertising, Moira has spent her entire professional career working with nonprofits - almost 20 years, she openly admits. In that time she has created membership strategies and communications read (and enjoyed, she firmly believes) by millions of donors. When not thinking up integrated direct response strategies to make the world a better place, she enjoys thinking up things like Halloween costumes and birthday cakes for 6-year-old Lucia and 2-year-old Sabine.
