Uncompromising integrity, unwavering support, incomparable success.

Averill’s President, Robert C. Happy, Jr., has served as a trusted advisor to Seton Hall Preparatory School through three capital campaigns. Most recently Bob and the Averill team have guided The Prep through the ‘Generations’ Campaign, which has raised more than $25,000,000. I would give Averill Fundraising Solutions my highest recommendation.
