What We do
We’re helping public figures and organizations make informed & effective philanthropic decisions… and changing the world while we’re at it!
Now more than ever, it is crucial to be focused on how we can invest in a positive future. In our fast-paced and technologically connected world, there is the unmatched opportunity to make massive impact.

Giving of any kind…taking an action…begins the process of change, and moves us to remember that we are part of a much greater universe.” -Mbali Creazzo
Don’t miss valuable opportunities to give back.
You want to use your platform, voice or funds for good, but how?
We at AE have spent the last decade mastering the skills required and understanding the intricacies, priorities and discretion that is required to achieve overall success in your philanthropic efforts.
If you have the desire to make a deep and lasting social impact, we can build the perfect program for you, bringing together the ideal partners and maximizing opportunities and exposure.
Why We Do It
Because scrutiny is real.
From high profile investigations into non-profit organizations’ practices to a constant negative chatter on social media, charity in all forms is under ever-increasing scrutiny.
What may seem to one person as a simple attempt to be charitable can quickly become a public relations disaster.
We help you avoid landmines by carefully vetting the partners and causes that want to work with you, so you can be rest assured that your philanthropic efforts are beyond reproach.
Philanthropy is a full-time job.
“Giving effectively requires a different set of skills.
It necessitates a different level of collaboration and relationship building, deep humility, and a recognition of how difficult it is to chart cause and effect.”
Founder of the Center for Effective Philanthropy
Philanthropy is all we do, so when you work with us, you put our skills and knowledge to work for your cause!

We’ve had the wonderful pleasure of working with and raising funds for these amazing nonprofit organizations!
I worked with Nicole for two straight years as Host of the Hope for Heroes Children's Cancer Fund event. What immediately grabbed me about the event was the clever tie with the show "Arrow" and the promotion around the event. It felt larger than life. She engaged the crowd, ensured everyone was comfortable and ran the program excellently. Nicole always kept me informed throughout the process and was a pleasure to work with in this endeavor. Helping kids and kicking Cancer's ass are a great combination, and so is Nicole Herring with any charity event. I look forward to teaming up with her in the future!

We did it! Another successful event thanks to Altruistic Events! Your expertise and managing, ‘always with a smile’, helped us stay on track, meet deadlines and navigate challenges. Your set up and execution – all of the onsite work – registration, food management, silent auction organization and check out as well as dealing with issues (ugghh!) was met with happy determination which was instrumental in making our annual Top of the Hill event the success it was! We are sincerely grateful!
Kathy Greene,Chief Operations Officer, The Hamels Foundation. Springfield, MO
You and your team were a total pleasure to work with at our Big Brother Premiere event. I am thrilled that you were able to assist in us raising over $1000 at the silent auction. I did not imagine our small party was able to collect that much money. I'm glad I was able to donate an additional $250 from my ticket's proceeds. It was truly a very fun and successful fundraising event and I hope to work with you again in the near future.

I had the pleasure of working with Nicole in the past on a few charity events. Can’t recommend working with her enough. Her heart is truly in the right place.
Bryan Greenberg, Actor. Los Angeles, CA
Wow, Nicole! You really outdid yourself. This was the definition of a multi-platform community fundraising event and you organized it and ran it to a “T”. I had a great time, too, and was blown away by the fun-loving fans, who are also so caring and compassionate. Many, many thanks for bringing this unique group of people together with Hope & Heroes.
Jeremy Shatan, Former Senior Director of Development, Hope and Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund. New York, NY
We have used Nicole to plan and manage events on more than one occasion. Each time we have been impressed by her professionalism, creativity and ability to meet deadlines. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Dan Raisbeck, Co-Founder, The Cybersmile Foundation. London, UK
Thank you so much for helping me find "Dream Foundation", a charity that is so close to my heart and based in my home country Jamaica. Nicole is amazing and no matter how hard the task is she will get the job done! Very professional and passionate. I hope to work with you again!
