Who We Are

Arthur Alley was founded in 2006 by Derek D. Alley and the late Rev. Dr. William L. Arthur as a niche philanthropic consulting firm focused on providing honest and strategic guidance for our clients. With Arthur Alley consultants as a partner, a wide variety of organizations have planned for the future, secured funding, and strengthened their ability to further your mission.

Arthur Alley consultants become partners in the work at hand. Respect for each client and dedication to ethical standards yield results.

The late William Arthur was a driving force in setting out the values of Arthur Alley and his legacy in the philanthropic community continues to shape the organization.

Derek has been active in the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) on a local, state, and international level and has served on multiple not-for-profit organization boards in his community. As a Presbyterian elder, Derek has also been engaged in the life of his local congregation.  He currently serves as Membership Committee Co-chair of the Giving Institute.

Ann’s varied professional career spans the nonprofit and corporate worlds.
