I have been involved in fundraising of all types for the last 40 years. Over that time I have met some of the best in the business. I would rate Jason Mida as one of the those. His personality, drive, follow thru, intelligence and his ability to have everyone feel special—makes him a rare breed. Mida Associates is a company that provides excellent customer service and follow through. They are a team of professionals headed for greater success. Any organization looking for consultants to assist in the development area should have Mida Associates as part of your team.

Mida Associates has played a crucial role over the last 7 years in working with AAPD to ensure that we have the resources and standing to advocate on behalf of millions of Americans with disabilities. As Board Chair, I’m proud to have Jason and his colleagues as part of the team.
Ted Kennedy, Jr.
AAPD Board Chair
I met Jason from serving as board member, officer, and Chair of board of the American Association of people with disabilities. He serves as the consultant for all development—fund-raising. He is one of the most effective and productive people I know. Also, he has a high-level of professionalism and integrity. If you ever need a Consultant with expertise in Fund-Raising, Event Planning and Client Engagement—he is just the best—period. I highly endorse him.
Founder & CEO
Bender Consulting Services, Inc.
Since 2011, Jason and his team have been leading my organization’s development efforts. He is a smart, articulate strategic thinker, and always a consummate professional. Jason has garnered the utmost respect of my staff, board, and funders. Not to mention he is a joy to work with. When you hire Mida Associates you get 110 percent all the time, but what has impressed me the most is how he has come to embrace our mission and connect with our community. Having no knowledge of disability rights five years ago, Jason, today, is a passionate advocate. It’s that passion and authenticity, coupled with smarts and skills, that make him an outstanding fundraiser and a highly valued, respected member of my team.
Past President & CEO
I’ve been working with Jason and Mida Associates since 2013. With Mida Associates you always feel like they are only working for you.

Jason and his team provide strategic perspective and honest feedback to best position an organization and showcase its leadership qualities. Whether that’s achieved through messaging, web design, event planning or fund raising strategies, Mida Associates ensures remarkable results.
Mida Associates really cares about the organizations they work for. The customer service attitude is uniquely personal. They treat each client business as if it’s their own.

Mida Associates has been a valued partner of CAIR Coalition over the last few years as we have worked together to enfranchise current and new stakeholders to keep immigrant families together. With their support, we have grown our major donor base during a critical time in the fight for immigrant rights and feel prepared for the fights ahead.

Jason works well in big organizations and small groups, as his personality allows for customized innovation and team building. A quick study, he gets to the point rapidly, and strikes a great balance between the need for reflective study and unnecessary time delay.

I had the opportunity to work with Jason and his time and I’ve got to say – they produced. Jason was highly recommended as a leader who can jump right in, roll up his sleeves, and get the job done. Jason and the team did just that. Their work was professional, complete, and extremely valuable to support the organization’s capacity to succeed.
