Ted Sudol

Managing Director
Working with a diverse array of clients, Ted Sudol taps cross-disciplinary experiences in philanthropy & fundraising as a consultant, practitioner, lawyer, and executive in the voluntary, public and private sectors.  Currently Managing Director at Carter, he draws on his roles in arts & culture, healthcare, higher education, and human services at the national, regional, and local levels for an unparalleled perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing nonprofit organizations today. 

He has raised millions of dollars at every level of fundraising, from annual fund, principal & major giving, and gift planning to endowments and capital projects for new facilities and services.   For four decades, he has demonstrated a relentless focus on crafting simple solutions for complex matters to attain optimal outcomes. 

Ted creates strategies, tactics, and plans that are both imaginative and effective.  His counsel balances an appreciation for the lofty aspirations that inspire the pursuit of philanthropic support with the pragmatic realities involved in fundraising.  Ted’s attention to detail is evident from the conceptual and design stages to implementation and operation.

He has had leadership roles with a large public university, a large church-related long-term care organization; a boutique tax and estate planning law firm; and a multi-disciplinary financial services firm. He spent 15 years with United Way at the national, regional and local levels, in roles ranging from intern to chief executive officer.  He began his career in philanthropy as a student at Georgetown University, where he created and raised funds for a scholarship endowment memorializing the University’s advisor to Mu Alpha Chapter of the National Service Fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega.

Ted frequently speaks at the national, state, and local levels on such topics as the campaign readiness imperative, legal & public policy challenges for tax-exempt organizations, ethics in fundraising, and the value of philanthropic estate planning. 

A graduate of Archbishop Stepinac, Georgetown University, and Temple University Law School, he serves on the Association of Fundraising Professional’s International Education Advisory Committee and the board of AFP’s Shenandoah Valley Chapter in Virginia.  He also is a member of the AFP Westchester County, NY Chapter.
