Strengthen a nonprofit's ability to fundraise!
Many nonprofits lack the capacity, resources, and knowledge to raise the funds they need in order to sustain themselves financially and deliver their missions. You can help by contributing your fundraising expertise and boosting the capacity of local nonprofits while also enhancing your own consulting skills.
501 Commons provides high quality, affordable consulting, coaching and training services to nonprofits, schools, and public agencies thanks to a corps of skilled volunteers who share their time and talent. The Executive Service Corps, a program of 501 Commons, is dedicated to connecting the skills and expertise of volunteer consultants with organizations in need of planning and management consulting. As a fund development consultant with 501 Commons you can help build the capacity of nonprofits to effectively fundraise by:
- Assessing and improving organizational readiness
- Developing case statements for support
- Creating fund development plans, and more
As a Service Corp Member, you will:
- Have access to our resource library and professional development workshops
- Learn new skills applicable to personal and professional situations
- Apply your background and expertise towards supporting the nonprofit community
While the requirements of each project vary, consultants typically work in pairs and serve approximately 10-12 hours per month each, over the course of 2-4 months.
