We're active in many aspects of fundraising. We do capital raises with for profit businesses and philanthropic campaigns for nonprofits. We assess feasibility, provide planning, counsel, and in limited situations, direct solicitation.
Working with businesses, we help owners and executive teams identify funding sources for growth capital, for acquisitions, and for exits. We understand private market funding sources and are able help owners and executive teams determine their best funding strategies.
We work with nonprofits to develop plans for major fundraising initiatives, earned income and sponsorship revenue. We explore nontraditional funding opportunities that create continuing revenue allowing nonprofits to effectively budget for their future activities.

“I was part of a collaboration of three nonprofits that hired Chris to write several significant state government grants. So true to his character, Chris went above and beyond. He spent many personal hours in the strategic planning phase helping us to refine our approach and bring to the fore previously unthought of elements that took the plan to a new level. I was continually amazed as I then watched Chris represent the group with eloquent and articulate ease to harness the power of community supporters and resources so critical to the success of each project.
"Small nonprofits especially are often afraid to spend a little money up front where it will do the most good. Personally speaking, I wish I'd known Chris five years ago. I could have saved a whole lot of money along with many wasted hours of time and frustration.”
