Let me fight for your nonprofit!

Fundraising and Development Audit - 
A Development Audit is an internal assessment of your fundraising program and your readiness to embark on development ventures. An audit can identify what your organization needs to be working on to get ready for sustainability tomorrow.

Strategic Planning Workshop - 
Strategic Planning is key to developing an effective and comprehensive plan of action. Having an expert facilitator takes the pressure off staff, creates a focused atmosphere and allows for non-bias consensus.

Fundraising & Executive Coaching 
My coaching and mentoring services allow your organization to work with an expert and shorten the learning curve. I can help you write a case for support, create an annual fundraising plan, and work with your fundraising team to develop a robust multi-channel campaign for year-end fundraising.

Transition and Interim Executive Succession Planning and Facilitation - The average vacancy for an executive director is six months. Can your organization afford that? Hiring me for interim work can keep the organization on track, and mentor the new hire to get them up and fully operational.

Board Development and Governance - Boards often need an orientation session and materials to help them understand how to be more than just a “good board” but become a “great board.” This is best usually accomplished with outside guidance. I can train board members individually through coaching and in groups through workshops.
