Our services

We offer a wide variety of training, workshops, and consulting services for individuals and groups:

Strategic Planning

Organizational success begins with clearly identifying your long-term goals and the path to achieving them, and then tracking where you are on the journey and maintaining the stability and growth to get there

Fund Development

Securing the resources to support your organization’s work requires program planning, finding the right grants, and identifying and cultivating relationships with potential donors


Every organization needs to reach its key audiences to promote its mission, achieve its intermediate goals, and document its role and value to its supporters and the broader community it serves

Board Training

A sustainable nonprofit requires a board that understands its roles and responsibilities, as well as how to structure committees and work with staff, recruit new members, and create a culture of giving
