Shana Davidson

Shana Davidson is a rare talent in the fundraising profession. 

After working at the Viguerie organization for several years, Shana joined The Fund for American Studies and began to focus exclusively on high dollar direct mail fundraising. Beginning with only a handful of donors, Shana grew The Fund’s donor file to 6,000 high value donors in only a few short years, with no net loss. 

In 2007, Shana joined ClearWord Communications Group. At ClearWord, Shana has been the go to executive for clients requiring complex strategy, planning, analysis, and painstaking implementation of complex fundraising plans. 

Shana’s work with The Fund for American Studies and ClearWord Communications, offers text book examples of how mufti-channel, mufti-layered development programs ought to be run. 

Shana is a graduate of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts and holds a Masters Degree in Political Science from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She lives outside of Washington, D.C.
