Leadership
Greg Ring
Co-Founder
Greg Ring (Co-Founder) has been a recognized expert and thought leader in the Planned Giving arena for the past three decades. The firms launched by Greg have served more than 200 ministries and nonprofits, developing and executing more than $3 billion in documented planned gifts. His passion for the nonprofit sector has led to continual improvement of the service model. “How can we make Planned Giving easier for the nonprofit? Can we make Planned Giving cash flow positive for them?” are questions Greg has focused on strategically. Fulcrum builds on this rich history, engaging technology so that both the local church and the mega nonprofit can participate effectively and efficiently in "the greatest transfer of wealth in history". Greg is married with three daughters and four grandchildren, and lives in Colorado Springs.

Richard Blackmon
Co-Founder
Richard Blackmon (Co-Founder) has spent the past 20 years working on current gifts in the nonprofit arena. Before co-founding Fulcrum, he was CEO and President of one of the largest campaign consulting companies in America that provides services to a wide variety of nonprofit market verticals. He has helped clients raise hundreds of millions of dollars and helped conduct some of the largest "major donor efforts in history" (over 20 billion dollars raised). Richard has had the privilege of working with schools/universities, local churches, social service agencies, denominational bodies, the arts, and worldwide health organizations. He has a high understanding of philanthropy and aligning donor desires with specific needs. Richard and his wife Debby have five children and five grandchildren.

Merger of Disciplines
The successful history of these two founders brings a unique blend of skills. They bring a deep understanding of charities’ needs as well as the needs of donors. Their proven track record in creating massive current capital gifts as well as dramatic planned gifts creates a Merger of Disciplines like no other firm in America. They have taken this history and introduced a technology suite that is unrivaled. This allows Fulcrum to boldly state that their desire is to “Serve the Masses and Surface the Few”.
