Does This Sound Familiar?
You want to start, or you've launched a nonprofit (or taken over one that someone else started), and you're ready, willing and able to do whatever you need to in order to grow. But now, what?! What exactly are the steps you need to take, and in what order? You need money, but how to do you get it? Do you just write a grant a hope for the best? What do you do with your board? How do you engage them and other volunteers in your work? Do you need a business plan? How about the legal issues, the IRS, the State?
So much to think about, and no where to turn. It can be overwhelming and frustrating!
If you're like me as a nonprofit leader - you have to think that there's just no way that growing a nonprofit should be this hard.
Well, it doesn't have to be. Based on our personal experience in the real world, we believe there are three distinct, but interrelated reasons why some nonprofits succeed and others fail. And when you understand how these three elements work together properly, you can create an effective and highly impactful nonprofit organization.
If you are not engaging your key stakeholders and prospective stakeholders by building meaningful relationships with them, you will flounder. We create the best platforms for you and provide the proper tools for cultivating people, so they can be both informed and engaged. And, the best part is, it can all be set up to happen automatically, leaving you time to focus on running your organization, instead of writing emails, creating Facebook posts or determining how to put together an impactful video!
Great nonprofits don’t rely solely on good intentions but instead are flush with talented and skilled leadership that can, and do, turn those intentions into actions which propel the organization forward. The right leaders, well-trained and well equipped, make all the difference in the world. We help by identifying, recruiting and training (or retraining) your board or your staff so that everyone understands their proper roles and responsibilities, the expectations that come with those roles and then give them the tools they need to do the job properly!
Although many nonprofit organizations manage to squeak by financially, few have enough money to really expand, grow and flourish. We all know it takes money to operate your nonprofit, plain and simple. We help you identify and capitalize on your unique income streams. As professional fundraisers, this is our bread and butter, and we know it is yours too! From appeals to crowdfunding to grants and special events, we develop a funding plan that is right for you, and then help you implement it to ensure your success!

How Do You Grow a Nonprofit Organization?
The one thing we know about growing a nonprofit organization is that you need help doing it. It's a team effort from start to finish. You wouldn't be here if you could do it on your own. You wouldn't be searching for help, for someone to lighten the burden you are facing. You wouldn't be struggling, feeling like this work you are doing shouldn't be so hard.
We've been where you are. In the trenches. Sleeves rolled up. Fighting the good fight. Feeling alone and unappreciated. Totally frustrated. Doing all we can (and spending every moment possible) trying to bring in more money for the cause and to manage the chaos that seems to consume most leaders in nonprofit organizations. It's exhausting!
But after 30+ years serving the nonprofit sector, we've also been on the other side of that coin - seeing over 14,000 new prospects attracted to a charity in less than 90 days, watching as thousands of new dollars rolled in every week as a result of the automatic cultivation we set up for those prospects, witnessing the miracle of a client's nonprofit name being listed just below FEDEX in brand recognition worldwide and excited and energized as the board of directors sought out the executive director with new ideas and strategies for engaging people, rather than the other way around!
We've been in this business long enough to know that's probably what you want too. And we're happy to tell you it all can be yours!
All you need is a guide to show you the way - to provide the shortcuts you are currently missing, to help ease that burden and provide a bit of a sounding board, too.
We stand ready to be that guide, friend and mentor. We're ready to show you the way. So you can raise more leaders. So you can raise more exposure. So you can raise more funds.
