Raise your hand if things have gotten easier for your not-for-profit organization in the past few years. OK - everyone with your hands up - see you later.
For the rest: you have too much on your plate, too few hands to do the work, and too many people relying on the critical services you provide to your community. You probably spend way more time shaking your fist at the backlog of administrative and development work piling up than in raising your fist in support of the powerful work you do for the people you serve.
We should talk. Let Nacy Warner Associates provide you with the support you need to remain mission-focused and on-task.
Nacy Warner Associates can help your organization with strategic planning, administration, fund-raising, campaign development, communications, board engagement, event planning and execution, and even web development and graphic design. If you need it done, let's talk about how we can work together to make it happen.
We focus our work on organizations and causes that promote equality, social justice, LGBTQQIA+, HIV/AIDS and sexual health, reproductive rights, community-building, civic engagement, and empowerment. Fox News viewers and Conservatives need not apply; there are plenty of consulting firms out there who would be happy to take you on. Nacy Warner Associates isn't one of them.
We will 100% work within your organization's budget restrictions to create a strategy to meet your needs. In accordance with solid fund-raising principles and industry standards, we NEVER contract with clients on a "we'll-take-a-percent-of-funds-raised" basis [and if you're looking at other consultants - as you should! -and they want you to enter into this kind of contract, then you should run away....fast] and will be happy to discuss fee structures on a per-project/campaign basis. We generally charge 25 to 50% up-front, with additional payments scheduled upon meeting key deadlines or deliverables.
Step One: Send an email or call us. We'll chat a bit to see if our firm might be a good fit for your organization or cause.
Step Two: Let's definitely meet for coffee. [Tea is a suitable alternative, as is Italian soda, cappuccino, hot cocoa, or the liquid refreshment of your choosing. Our principal doesn't drink alcohol, so as long as you don't mind drinking alone, cocktails for one can also work.]
Step Three: Profit!
Just kidding. The third step will be us encouraging you to meet with other prospective consultants so that you are aware of the range of amazing people who can help you achieve your organization's goals. If we're the right fit for you, you'll be back. If not: no harm and no foul! We'll be cheering you on as you continue your great work!
In addition to maintaining both general liability and "errors and omissions" insurance policies, our principal is registered as a Professional Fundraiser with the New York State Attorney General's Charities Bureau (#44-31-49) and carries bonding in New York State as required by the Attorney General.*
