Consulting and advisory services for non-profit entities including grant writing, budget development, organizational assessment and process improvement, goal setting, marketing, leadership, training, and event planning, including virtual events. These services also extend to small businesses.
Non-profit organizations do not always have the resources for or need for full time staff. Using consultants is a way for not-for-profit organizations to obtain valuable situational and seasonal expertise and assistance. Small business, especially DBAs and those just starting out may be in a similar boat and can benefit from short term, occasional, or out-sourced expertise.
Why should we donate to or sponsor your organization? Often, non-profits focus on "feel good" aspects to attract corporate donors, which may work but is not always sustainable or helpful in attracting a robust stable of repeatable donors. Non-profits may struggle to calculate the true cost of doing business or make a clear pitch to donors about why funds are needed, especially corporate donors. Return on Investment may be difficult to calculate, but it is often necessary to attract certain donors. Or, the reality is that donors seek the marketing opportunity that comes with donations or sponsorships. Cultivate Advisory Services can perform an assessment of finances and assist with strengthening messages and pitches to corporations.

Not-for-profit organizations, especially those that work with low-income individuals and/or in the health and human services sphere, often provide a few services to clients that are also receiving support from other public and private organizations. We can help your organization understand what these resources are and how these programs may interact or work together to help your clients. We can also assist you to approach and/or coordinate with public agencies if you have a need. We understand public programs such as Medicaid, Title IV-E, and SNAP and can do staff training or provide support on specific initiatives.
