We’ve helped more than 200 agencies achieve their goals & raised more than $72M for your peers.

We know that you can sometimes feel like:

  • if we had just a little more money, and
  • if our board were a little more organized, and
  • if more people knew about the great work we’re doing, and
  • if our agency had a clearly articulated, inspiring vision

We could have a much bigger impact.

Well, we’re here to tell you that YOU CAN!

We know from experience that it can be…

  • a struggle to make budget every year.
  • a challenge to engage your board in fundraising.
  • an uphill battle communicate with our donors, volunteers & stakeholders on a regular basis
  • difficult to articulate our agency’s mission and vision in an easily-understood, inspiring way.

We know also that nonprofit staff often feel stressed out, overwhelmed & overworked.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

It IS possible to:

  • raise more money
  • build a dynamic board
  • invest in strategic planning
  • communicate with the world about the great work you’re doing.

When you do, you:

  • can serve more people & have a bigger impact.
  • experience less stress; your workday is less frantic.
  • have more time to truly help your clients, connect with your donors & conduct outreach with prospective donors & volunteers.
  • can increase your visibility & credibility, which attracts new donors, volunteers & board members.

Having nearly three decades of experience in the field, we have experienced the tension between trying to meet the increasingly complex needs of clients while managing an agency in an ever-changing environment.

That’s why we focus on best practices; on solutions that work & have been proven in the field, by your peers; on strategies that will help solve the problems you’re experiencing today & position your organization for success in the future.

Sarah’s Workshops were a Huge Hit!

We asked Sarah to deliver two workshops at our 2014 state-wide conference — which drew 525 nonprofits — because of her track record & because of her knowledge that spans the arena of fundraising, leadership, human resources & more. Both of Sarah’s workshops were a huge hit!

Sarah always jam packs her workshops with valuable information that someone can apply to their own jobs today. There are take-a-ways from every workshop Sarah presents. If asked to present, Sarah learns about the audience and customizes her message for the attendees.

Strategies for Growth

It’s been a great opportunity for the agency to reflect on strategies for growth, to discover new funders, and to bring new funding online so we can sustain our important work with ex-offenders in Worcester. Sarah is our go-to consultant — she’s responsive, effective and really fun to work with.
