FOR NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS

Fundraising in difficult economic times

In difficult economic times donors become increasingly discerning. Competition for philanthropic dollars intensifies and it becomes necessary for even the smallest nonprofits to become more strategic and professional in their fundraising initiatives.

A consultant can help you measure and articulate your unique contribution to the community. Once your niche is defined within the philanthropic marketplace, we can direct you to resources that will bring you the dollars you need to fulfill your mission.

We help you create a fundraising strategy that is affordable and sustainable within your culture with your available resources. We work with you to define the fundraising roles of your staff, board, and volunteers, with all efforts aimed at uniform goals. Our approach is personal and customized to help you raise more money.
