Our Services

While we work with a broad range of organizations and issues, most of our clients have budgets of less than $5 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 you in person or work by phone and video conferencing.

“Fired Up”

Your fundraising workshop really fired up the board, and that is a real first. I also appreciate that you had such an intimate feel for our organization just from the literature I sent you. No one has quite connected to the important stuff as you did. ”
