Starting and building any nonprofit organization requires funding. While the hope is that there will be a flood of donations and countless individuals joining in support of your cause, significant contributions are not likely to happen until your organization is well established, has success stories, and builds credibility.
To succeed it’s imperative to employ a team of volunteers and engage them in an ongoing fundraising plan. The success of the team will depend on training, motivation, and reward. For many nonprofits, fundraising is daunting. Raising money when much of the nation is struggling financially can be even more challenging, but you shouldn’t lose hope!

No. Our trained fundraising representatives are resources available to you who will create tools for your use, and provide education on how to undertake various fundraising techniques. We do not directly raise funds for you or relieve key staff and volunteers of their fundraising responsibilities. We will provide you the education, fishing pool and tacklebox, but it will be up to you and your team to do the fishing.
We encourage you to begin by contacting our consultants to share more about your organization so we can best guide you. This will give us the information necessary to make the best recommendation in regards to the most appropriate services to meet your needs. Once a service is selected, a short client discovery questionnaire will be sent and a telephone interview will be scheduled. During the interview your annual fundraising plans will be discussed, and you’ll receive details on the specific tools you’ve selected. Some services may require several follow-up contacts between the consultant and client to ensure that you have a full understanding of how the tools you’re provided can be most effectively utilized.
