Unlock the full potential of your business with our consulting services. From business transformation and strategic planning to fundraising, we offer a wide array of services tailored to your company's specific needs. Let us help you achieve your goals.
Business & Strategic Planning
Strategic planning helps an organization define its vision and direction as well as pursue strategies that will achieve that vision. Our unique approach helps you evaluate past performance to determine "stuck places," review operations to ensure efficiency and effectiveness, and complete a functional analysis to restructure operations when needed. Additionally, we compare current operations to product, market, and organizational trends, explore strategic restructuring including alliances, mergers, and acquisitions to ensure sustainability, and integrate culture change based on core values when needed. We also identify strategic investment budgets and fundraising needs, achieve enterprise transformation when needed, and engage stakeholders through research and analysis to identify needs and help inform the plan. Furthermore, we identify organizational and funding strategies to achieve the vision and goals, analyze demand, and complete financial forecasts. Lastly, we facilitate talent management, succession planning, or CEO evaluation to ensure systems are effective.
Governance & Board Development
When an organization practices good governance with full disclosure, the public will feel that the company can be trusted. Ultimately, this helps the reputation of the organization to grow. For-profits, nonprofit corporations, and boards supported by another organization or entity should all take steps to increase the quality of their governance systems. By doing so, they can improve outcomes. We offer various services to support organizations in achieving this goal, including board retreat facilitation, board and staff training, learning and applying best practices, board effectiveness assessment/restructuring support, and an annual legal and operational "check-up" in collaboration with our attorney partner(s). These services are based on the Standards for Excellence:® An Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector.
Fundraising & Resource Development
Our expert fundraising team offers a comprehensive range of services to help build your organization's resource development capacity. These services include customized training, consulting, and coaching, all aimed at achieving your fundraising goals. In addition to development department performance audits, we provide training and coaching for staff, leaders, board members, and volunteers. We also assist in annual and long-term fund development planning, as well as annual appeals and major gifts campaigns. Furthermore, our team is experienced in grant research and grant writing. If needed, we also offer outsourced development and fundraising services.
