John Murphy: Head Men’s Soccer Coach, Georgia Southern University

Ted Priestly has a unique skill set that transcends multiple levels of sport and business as a consultant and professional of the highest order. His ability to connect with his clients, assess key aspects of their objectives and goals, and then come up with clear strategies that eventually lead to success is among the very best I have ever worked with. Ted is someone that I have used as a consultant for my own company, and someone that I would fully recommend to help you and your organization. You will not be disappointed.


Christian Figueroa: Head Men’s Soccer Coach, UMass Lowell

I have been fortunate to have experienced Ted’s alumni relations events as a player, as an alumnus and as his assistant coach.  His engagement strategy (including alumni correspondence, reunions, alumni games and mentoring nights) is second-to-none, and has given me a template to work off of now in my career as a head coach.


Fran O'Leary: Head Men’s Soccer Coach, UMass Amherst

We have been so fortunate to have Ted leading our Alumni Leadership Team.  From his quarterly engagement calls and updates, to our annual (and wildly popular) Alumni Mentoring Night, Ted has brought so much to the table in terms of alumni engagement, and our fundraising has improved exponentially as a result.


Taylor Twellman: Founder at ThinkTaylor/ESPN Analyst/Former US National Team Member and New England Revolution Player

Ted has been and will continue to be a pleasure to work with. He has been the key driver of our sponsorship and media partnerships at ThinkTaylor, his attention to detail is second to none and he doesn't micro manage those around him.  His ability to see beyond today is something that has been very important to those around us and thus someone I will work with for years to come.

I have known Ted for about a decade now and he is one of those people that you are lucky to know. He is not only smart and hardworking, talented and engaging and all of those things you look for in a business partner but he is so much more than that.  He is a goodhearted soul that will do anything to make a good situation great!
He is creative in a way that brings you and everyone else along on a wonderful journey of achievement and success while making it fun along the way.  I think his coaching background gives Ted that ability to bring out the best in everyone while holding himself and everyone else accountable. This is how he makes every situation a win-win.
Ted is easy to cheer for because you know he is cheering for you!  I can give Ted my highest recommendation because I know he will deliver on any project anywhere. He is GREAT! If you need to hear more call me anytime.
I am a huge fan of TED PRIESTLY!

Ken Harring: Head Baseball Coach, University of Massachusetts Lowell

From developing our hugely successful ‘Friends and Family’ fundraising program to co-facilitating our annual Hot Stove Dinner to kick off our season, Ted has been a wonderful asset to UMass Lowell Baseball.

His fundraising sense is outstanding, and his professionalism, follow-through and attention to detail has truly benefitted our program throughout the years.  I give Ted and Fundraise4U.net my full endorsement.


Elie Monteiro: Head Women’s Soccer Coach, Southern New Hampshire University

Ted carves out a clear path for success in reaching your goals. He will be invested in helping you build and strengthen relationships so you stay connected with your people which will help future results. 


Bill Brady: Athletic Director, Landon School (Bethesda, MD)

Throughout his career, Ted has had an innovative and entrepreneurial approach to coaching, administration, leadership and most importantly, fundraising.  I have applied many of his best practices in the programs that I have led, and have benefitted greatly as a result.  I highly recommend Ted to help you with all of the ‘additional duties as assigned’ that coaches don’t always enjoy doing, or excel at.

Sarah Monson: Assistant Director of Annual Giving, American International College (Springfield, MA)

Ted has a winning personality and the winning formula to engage and increase donor giving! 
The AIC athletics and Institutional advancement departments collaborated with Ted on a direct mail appeal that focused on current student-athletes’ friends and family.

It was key in new donor acquisition and increased overall donors by 131% during Athletics Giving Week.

Working with Ted is a fundraiser’s dream!

John Barata: CEO and Director of Coaching, Legacy Soccer Club (MA)

We had the pleasure of working with Ted Priestly at Fundraise4U.net over the past year and I have to say it has transformed my thinking on fundraising.

Ted provided the tools for real-time accounting practices to ensure we stay focused and provide terrific service to our donors. His support from the beginning to the end of the process was top-notch.

We look forward to working with Ted in the future and strongly recommend any organization looking for fundraising support to reach out.

Rory Charcholla: MLS NEXT Boys' Academy Director, Empire United Academy (NY)

While providing the most professional youth soccer environment in western NY, our biggest challenge annually is raising the funds necessary for our budget. Enter Ted Priestly, who our Empire United MLS NEXT staff is very fortunate to have crossed paths with. He's taken the lead in planning a more sustainable annual approach to fundraising. Additionally, his execution of the Friends & Family campaign is seamless. Plainly speaking, Ted's efforts have taken a little less stress off of our plate, and allowed us to do more of what we love doing...coaching soccer! Ted is a "doer" and an unofficial member of our staff. We look forward to continuing our relationship in the months and years to come.
