Let’s make your nonprofit stronger, together.
Here’s just a few of the ways I can help:
I am a true generalist with the ability to see the inter-connectedness and interdependence of many elements of an organization's strategies and operations.
Much of my work might be viewed within the following context:
facilitation and community consultation
social enterprise development
strategic planning (functional)
organizational and operational reviews
financial sustainability reviews
business plans and feasibility studies
examining existing and potential strategic alliances
board member onboarding, board governance
Are you getting the full story from your financial management reports? The right reporting can help uncover opportunities and identify gaps and areas for improvement.
Together, we can explore how your financial information is being collected and presented so that you can make informed decisions that lead your nonprofit to a more sustainable financial model.
Whether you’re just launching or 30 years in, it can be challenging to know how to focus your organization’s efforts. A well-crafted strategic plan is a map that helps you reach your destination without getting pulled off course.
Using input from the stakeholders that matter most we’ll look back historically on where you’ve been, explore the current landscape to get a sense of how you best fit and formulate a path forward that guides you towards your vision for the future.
Social enterprise has taken off as a new formula for success. Whether subsidized or self-funding, these initiatives combine business methods with a drive to better the world.
Blending financial goals with your mission for social, cultural or environmental impact is one of the most effective ways your organization can work towards financial stability while still feeling connected to your larger purpose. Together, we can build a stable plan to get your social enterprise off the ground.
Nonprofit board members need smarts and a willingness to work hard. Their blood, sweat and (yes, sometimes) tears are what keeps your organization moving forward, but they can’t steer the ship if you don’t point them in the right direction.
Successful onboarding gives your board members the context they need to put their full set of skills to work for your organization. Together, we can work through the three layers of orientation every board member needs so your organization can end board burnout.
As organizations change and grow it’s hard to stop and take time to review. Are the right people in the right places? Is technology being used to ease workflows? Are people engaged and productive?
Organizational reviews gather information from a broad range of stakeholders to give a “big picture” view of the organization as a whole. Together, we’ll zoom in to find the areas that need attention and make a plan for where changes are needed so your organization has the tools it needs to be the best it can be.

You’ve heard it before - “failing to plan is planning to fail.” Your organization has limited resources. Before taking on new projects (or expanding existing ones) it’s critical you have a road map to give you the best chance at success.
Together, we can form a workable business plan with a crucial nonprofit spin: we’ll consider the bottom line while still focusing on the impact of your organization and the non-financial reasons you do what you do.
Marketing is not just for the for-profit world. It’s the way we let our broad range of stakeholders know what we’re all about - from the people we help to those who help us.
Knowing whom to connect with and how to connect with them is what makes your efforts successful, or not. Together, we can make the most of your communications time and resources with a nonprofit-focused marketing strategy that works.
