Capacity Building for Nonprofits

Strong communication is at the heart of all strong organizations, especially service and nonprofit ones. Clearly, forcefully describing the WHY of what you do generates the energy, commitment, and relationships that yield sustained success.

I work with community-based nonprofits and local governments to help achieve mission. Areas of focus include:

  • Broad, deep public/constituent engagement and listening
  • Fundraising (assessments, campaign feasibility studies, campaign design and execution)
  • Board and staff internal communication training
  • Organizational capacity building
  • Strategic planning, trend¬†assessment, emerging opportunities
  • Governance, including board structure and right-sizing policy governance
  • Navigating change, including: growth, down-sizing, trends, mergers, strategic partnerships, new leadership, cultural shifts
  • Strengthening/retooling brand and identity; building reputation and trust
  • Helping organizations discover where and how to focus finite resources to achieve mission
