  • Funding Strategy. Broaden or deepen your sources of revenue and work toward long-term sustainability through effective fundraising. Receive recommendations on untapped sources for funding, screen out less promising sources, improve communication, or evaluate earned income ventures.
  • Partnerships, Collaborations and Mergers. If you’re interested in working with other nonprofits, we can assess the value and implications of strategic partnerships, collaborations, and mergers.
  • Strategic Alignment. Articulate your strategic goals so the entire organization is aligned. We can examine your mission, vision, programs, targeted beneficiaries, desired changes, strategic objectives, supporting activities, and alignment of financial/staff resources and strategic priorities.
  • Strategic Marketing. Identify and evaluate opportunities for expanding your services in existing and new markets. This project can create a positioning statement and a strategy around new opportunities.
