Hey there, I'm Mary Hackett...Your go-to bestie for all things fundraising and nonprofit operations!


With over 20+ years of major gift expertise and fundraising operations experience, I am here to guide you with actionable advice, resources, and a friendly voice when you are feeling stuck.

My fundraising and operations career was filled with big wins and big failures. The wins were spectacular, but the failures compelled me to launch Databasey and Hey Fundraiser. No fundraiser should struggle to identify the right prospects, understand how the philanthropic landscape is evolving, or which tools they need to succeed.

Is Your Infrastructure a HOT Mess?

I can sing the praises of Mary Hackett for days. She leads with her heart for the work. Mary's calm amidst the storm, that sometimes is the world of development, is incredible. She has been on the front lines in several not-for-profits. She's seen and done it all. -Carol B.
