COUNSEL

How to Choose the Right Fundraising Consultant for Your Nonprofit?

The decision to engage outside counsel is a valuable move for your nonprofit organization.

You are entering into what will be a long-term relationship with a partner to attain an important, likely crucial, goal. As competition for donors’ dollars continues to increase, attitudes of givers change, and the tactics and methods for reaching your fundraising goals must evolve. Therefore, choosing the right fundraising consultant can dramatically affect your organization for years to come.
