Our Services

While we work with a broad range of organizations and issues, most of our clients have budgets of less than $2 million and boards comprised of their constituency.

We have a great deal of expertise working in low income and marginalized communities, with progressive causes and controversial issues, as well as fundraising in rural communities, for start-up organizations, and organizations moving away from reliance on foundation dollars.

Our fees are reasonable; we can travel to meet in person or work by phone and teleconference.
