We understand that each organization is unique and do not provide “cookie-cutter” solutions. We develop tailored and innovative strategies to meet each of our nonprofit partner’s needs. This specialized approach allows us to remain flexible and creative, and demonstrates our ability to navigate complex assignments.

  • We provide a practical, hands-on approach. For example, we counsel on board development and major gifts and also stand ready, alongside our nonprofit partners, to implement our recommendations.
  • We provide an experienced team structure for each nonprofit. This allows work to happen in parallel and cost-effectively—you are not paying a senior consultant for administrative work.
  • We are honest, action-oriented partners—we don’t just say what you want to hear.
  • We create realistic, implementable campaign, fundraising, and strategic plans.
  • We provide interim fundraising and leadership solutions on a short or long-term basis, to help you achieve your revenue goals despite staffing gaps.
  • We are a full-service company. In addition to the full suite of fundraising support, we provide event management and production, and nonprofit management services.
  • We use technology to help nonprofits achieve their fundraising goals smarter, faster and more cost-effectively.
