Are you an Executive Director of a nonprofit organization?
What keeps you up at night?
Are you passionate about your mission?
Do you want do more, but fundraising is just one more thing to do?
Do you wish your board would do more?

I specialize in the needs of small-sized nonprofit organizations located throughout Florida by focusing on fundraising and board governance. Every nonprofit is unique. Every coaching and consulting project I work on looks slightly different. I tailor the service to the organization’s needs and desired outcome. My goal is to provide you with insight and direction, and ultimately, save you time down the road. My style is to partner with organizations and staff to be a sounding board, a resource, and champion for success. Rarely do “quick fixes” ever work long-term.

Fundraising Coach – My coaching and mentoring services give your organization the opportunity to work with an expert and shorten the learning curve. I can help you write a case for support, create an annual fundraising plan and working with a fundraising team to develop a robust multi-channel campaign for year-end fundraising.

Transition and Interim Executive Succession Planning and Facilitation – The average vacancy for a director is 6 months. Can your organization afford that? Hiring me for interim work can keep the development plan on track and I can mentor the new hire to get them up and running.

Marketing and Social Media – Let me help you develop a strategic communications plan with consistent brand messaging.

Strategic Planning and Retreat Facilitation – Board retreats are key to developing a plan. Having an expert facilitate takes the pressure off staff and creates a focused atmosphere.

Special Events – Planning a gala, cocktail reception, or other fundraiser? I have planned dozens of nonprofit events. Consultation must be minimum of four months prior to event, preferably eight.

Board Development and Governance – Boards often need an orientation session and materials to help them understand how to be more than just a “good board,” and become a “great board.” This is usually accomplished with outside guidance, as staff are stretched thin wearing many hats. I can train board members individually and in groups through workshops.

Fundraising and Development Audit – A Development Audit is an internal assessment of your fundraising program and your readiness to embark on new development ventures. Does a part of your strategic plan include a capital plan in the near future? An audit can identify what your organizations has to be working on now to get ready for a feasibility study tomorrow.

Nonprofit is a tax status not a business model! Let me help your nonprofit run more like a business and achieve long-term success.
