In communities across the country there are nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to filling a critical need for those they serve. However, providing these resources and/or services involves meticulous planning because so many of the functions of a nonprofit organization are interconnected. My experience with not only the nonprofit clients I serve, but the boards and organizations for which I am an active member, gives me the first-hand experience and knowledge to help you fulfill your mission and vision.
