Leading by example.


Businesses receive an overwhelming number of requests for donations each and every day. Your messaging needs to differentiate and intrigue. The goal is to make your request impossible to turn down. We will look at your business and corporate partnerships and make sure that you are providing benefits that align with their business goals and give them something new. By doing this, we build loyalty and commitment to the partnership. It’s about fostering a strong and mutually beneficial relationship. 


A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say; we did it ourselves. – Lao Tzu

An organization is only as good as the board that defines it. Committees and boards should be the backbone of your organization and the megaphone into the community. These groups are usually made up of volunteers with limited time and resources but with huge hearts and unlimited compassion. 

We will look at the makeup of your board and the structure of their involvement. We will help you create a model that allows your board to be successful in their role by motivating, inspiring and tapping into their strengths…all while remaining focused on the mission of the organization. 

We will also talk about temporary leadership such as chairs, co-chairs, honorees and other dignitaries within your organization. We can create a strategy that maximizes their involvement with a realistic time commitment. 

Finally, we’ll talk about you. Are you a good leader? Are you able to make decisions without the consensus of your organization and then lead the efforts for the betterment of your mission? Being a leader can be lonely…we can help you have faith in your work and show you how to capture the positive reinforcement you need to stay effective.
