About Me


The Boughs: A Legacy for Their Community


Allison M. Bough, MBA, CFRE

Hello! I’m Allison Bough. 

I’ve spent 30 years as an executive coach, fundraiser, and consultant. My super power is to teach, coach, and develop fundraising strategies so nonprofits raise more money and build stronger relationships. That starts with CEOs and professionals like you who lead their team so everyone can do their best work. 

I know the satisfaction that comes with being a community leader, volunteer, and donor. I love seeing board members get inspired about fundraising. And, it’s exciting to see a building rise out of the ground after a big capital campaign. I also understand the challenges you face, and I can help you navigate them and succeed.

When I’m not working with nonprofits, I love to travel, cook Italian food, visit art museums and explore Hampton Roads with my husband, Scott, and our dog, Tucker.

You can learn more about me on LinkedIn, or watch this video from the Hampton Roads Community Foundation to learn more about my commitment to our community.
