    About Us


    Our Experience

    Our team has over 30 years of combined fundraising, philanthropic and civic engage experience.  We know nonprofits.  We create public-private partnerships and we maximize the impact of philanthropic dollars.


    Our Approach

    Unlike many other consulting firms, we are a hands-on partner with our clients.  We will facilitate meetings, recruit board members, coordinate events, raise dollars, vet nonprofits.  We will do the work with you.  Our bias is to work in partnership, rather than creating a plan then walking away.


    Our Services

    Assisting nonprofits and philanthropy-based organizations in the fields of fundraising, donor stewardship programs, cultivating stronger relationships with donors, board development, executive level coaching and development, business management for nonprofits, executive searches for nonprofit and philanthropic organizations.
