Welcome to Bright Light.

Hi! Thanks for checking out Bright Light. I’m Cassie Cramer.

After more than 25 years working in development and communications for local and national nonprofits, I’ve branched out to start Bright Light LLC. Through Bright Light, I provide interim staffing solutions and fundraising counsel for nonprofits. My career includes lots of successes, and some misses, too (you can check out my professional journey on my LinkedIn page). I’m eager to share what I’ve learned about fundraising and communications with good people doing good work for good organizations across the country.
