Terry J. Cusack’s goal of helping his clients’ and their communities thrive and prosper.
Terry’s introduction to professional fundraising came while working at the Chamber of Commerce.
Advancing rapidly to the director of economic development position, Terry led a $10 million economic development campaign, Cornerstone, Partners-in-Progress.
As a loaned executive, Terry’s efforts helped make sure that the 30th NFL franchise wound up in Jacksonville.
That effort – which included selling $75,000 luxury suites, and a highly-visible, community-wide, 10-day, club seat sales drive called NFL NOW! — in a stadium that had yet to be built, for team that had yet to exist – which prompted then team president to acknowledge that,
“Terry is among the group of people without whose efforts the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars would never have been won.”
Terry contributed to the growth of more than thirty communities and other nonprofits around the country.
Terry’s success continues to earn him national press coverage. He appears around the country, speaking on fundraising, organizational growth and economic and community development.
Terry has demonstrated a belief in service by volunteering with Big Brothers of America. Terry need only look to his “little brother” Ben Nowland – an Auburn University graduate, masters’ student and former All-SEC Auburn football center who went on to play for several NFL Teams – for proof that people can make a difference.
Terry attended the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Organization Management.
