In the words
of our satisfied clients

If you want to know how good a company really is, ask their customers. Teresa Moore and Moore Ink. are committed to providing the best in creative PR and strategic communications. Let our clients tell you the rest:

“Teresa has transformed the way that Husky Athletics communicates with its donors and, without question, has helped us raise more money. In everything from a stewardship magazine to solicitation appeals, major gift proposals to speechwriting, her expertise shows donors the impact they make when they support UW student-athletes. Teresa is a critically valuable member of our fundraising team.”

Shannon Kelly, Associate Athletic Director for Advancement,
University of Washington Tyee Club

“I always thought I was a pretty good public speaker. That was before I met Teresa Moore. I admired a speech given at a nonprofit fundraiser and learned that Teresa had written the speech and coached the presenter. I decided to work with Teresa, and to my surprise l discovered that a skilled professional speechwriter can transform a message so it is heard, understood and felt by an audience. Teresa can also write, coach and craft the flow of all event speeches so the overall message holds together and builds for maximum impact. The comments after our major fundraising event told me something had changed; the audience understood our organization’s ability to change lives better than ever.   have continued to use Teresa’s assistance on many occasions and highly recommend her speechwriting and coaching services for novice and experienced public speakers alike.”

Joyce Jackson, President & CEO,
Northwest Kidney Centers

“Your (Writing for Dollar$) session was inspiring! Although I have worked in higher education for five years, writing for a new organization can often be intimidating. I am writing a one-page information sheet for an upcoming fundraising event and I am writing with your strategies in mind. Thank you!”

Asha Bhaga, Director of Development
Highline College Foundation

“Our annual report is out in the hands of the public and it’s a hit! I’ve received so many compliments from donors, staff and volunteers – everyone is so proud. Thank you for helping us to conceptualize this baby and the wonderful writing that brought the message to life.”

Grace Chien, Former CEO

“Teresa has earned the utmost respect of hundreds of nonprofit leaders with good reason. She’s an absolute pro, a no-nonsense communications expert who cares deeply about the transformative power of great storytelling. It’s been a highlight of my career to work alongside her.”

Liz Gillespie, Writerly Liz

“With our Centennial looming and having big expectations from the Board, I was totally overwhelmed. Having Teresa come in to assess strategically what would be of the most value to our organization was a huge help in itself, but she’s also made sure all the activities are on track and moving forward. The resulting overhaul of the messaging and branding is amazing. The Board and our President now can’t imagine life before Teresa and Moore Ink. and feel like their services are an amazing value!”

Andrea Solomon, Former Vice President/Resource Development

“We hired Teresa primarily to do media relations for our capital campaign, and she produced great results. But it soon became clear that her value to the YWCA went way beyond that role. From providing strategic counsel on communication to donors and employees, to writing our annual report, to generating new ways to build support for ongoing fundraising programs, Teresa is a tremendous asset. On top of that, she truly cares about and personally supports our mission.”

Maureen Frisch, Former Board Member and PR Committee Chair YWCA of Seattle King Snohomish

“Teresa Moore is the most gifted speechwriter I have known in my 35-year career in nonprofits. On many occasions I have witnessed her interview someone and write an extremely powerful message in the voice of the speaker. She is also an expert when it comes to editing speeches.  She is clear about the purpose, audience and intended outcomes before discussing the speech. You will be so proud of your remarks if you get help from Teresa!”

Patty Shepherd-Barnes, President, National Multiple Sclerosis Society/Greater Northwest Chapter
