"Hiring Capital Affairs six years ago for the very first miSci (Schenectady Museum) Gala was one of the smartest things we've done! Six years later, we still depend on Eileen and Christine to help us create an even more successful event – and they have never disappointed us!"

"Capital Affairs event, The Back to School Expo, has been an extremely rewarding event for CapitalCare. It has given us a chance to connect with children and parents and bring several of our specialties together to distribute important health information with interactive displays like our healthy breakfast, autism display and hand washing demonstration . The celebrity appearance certainly drew a large crowd, which is exactly what you want as a sponsor, and as a result our booth traffic was fantastic!"
"I know that when Christine and Eileen are involved, the event is a success. There is no need to worry. Capital Affairs has organized the Royal Tulip Ball for the Albany Tulip Festival for many years and it continues to be the stunning highlight of the spring season. They are true professionals and absolutely great to work with."

"In community-based not for profit organizations, financial resources and staffing are tight. As a board member and/or Chair of many community events, I look to Capital Affairs to work closely with various staffs to help meet integral fundraising goals through innovative events and promotions. With their creative expertise and guidance, they help charitable agencies established a reputation for polished, innovative events that keep guests coming back, year after year! I consider the staff at Capital Affairs to not only be an important part of a charity's team, but, more so, an integral part of our community."

“The Duramed FUTURES golf tour is an important sporting event in the Capital Region for professional female golfers aspiring to go on to the next level, the LPGA. Marketing and corporate fundraising for the tournament were identified as a vital component to the success of our event. Understanding that, we engaged Capital Affairs LLC to organize a working committee and redesign sponsorship proposals for the event. Through their efforts we were able to identify new corporate donors, personalize prospect proposals and move through the solicitation process in an organized, methodical manner. As a result we watched corporate donations increase by nearly 25%. I found them to be responsive, insightful, professional and considerate of our needs, the kind of consultants that go above and beyond to ensure their client’s success.”
"With their creative expertise and guidance, Capital Affairs helps non-profits create top notch events that not only reach or exceed financial goals but also delight volunteers and guests alike! They bring new meaning to the “special” in special events.”
“Capital Affairs has been one of our greatest assets, especially when it comes to event planning! After working with Capital Affairs last year for our organization's annual fundraising event, we were very impressed with the overall outcome. This creative team is dependable, hard working, and definitely knows the intricacies of event planning. They worked with us every step of the way, and always had creative ideas when it came to budgeting and day-of logistics. On the actual day of the event, they were calm, collected, and handled all vendor, sponsor, contractor and attendee issues with diplomacy and a smile. We would certainly recommend Capital Affairs for event planning - they will be part of our team again this year!"
"We are very satisfied with the professional guidance offered by Capital Affairs. They have helped our Board of Directors and executive level staff create our agency's comprehensive fundraising and development plan, as well as our public relations materials. Most importantly, they take the time to understand the vision of the agency and the members of the Board so that our specific efforts were tailored to match our mission. Their input has energized our agency to go forward with a sustained plan of action."
“Capital Affairs goes “above and beyond” their call of duty like no other organization that I have dealt with in my 16 yrs of being in business. They have successfully made my foundation a household name in this community and have assisted greatly in getting out the message that I hired them to try and accomplish years ago. Their passion to achieve objectives, along with how personal they take each task, has amazed me and I look forward to many years together.”
