“I feel the greatest sense of pride when our clients are successful in their fundraising programs and I know that we made a difference.”  

Michael credits the Boy Scouts of America for teaching him resilience, teamwork, friendship, and the love for the great outdoors. An Eagle Scout, Michael spent 11 years working for the national organization before shifting his focus to development and fundraising at NC State University, UNC-Chapel Hill (his alma mater), and most recently, the Conservation Trust for North Carolina as development director.

Drawn to Crouch & Associates for its unique fundraising approach, Michael travels all across the country helping clients discover ways that will make them more effective and efficient. When he’s not hard at work, you’ll find Michael outside with his canine companion Kota, running races, and enjoying the local bites and brews around his hometown of Durham—“Scratch, Monuts, Foster’s Market, and Fullsteam Brewery, just to name a few”.
