Having both worked at non-profits for years Jen & I understand their mission centered perspective as well as the constraints they face when it comes to funding. We also know from experience that the day-to-day work of planning, operating and growing a non-profit is very similar to the day-to-day activities it takes to run a successful for-profit business. We use our experience with both sides to create revenue generating & self-sustaining programs that help non-profits be more self sufficient and reduce their dependence on donors for operating funds.
You are allowed to charge for services and make money. We can help you design programs that provide value, stay on mission and also help pay the bills.
Non-profit program planning & consulting services
Grants, Funding plans & Cases for support
Clearly communicating why you & your programs are worth investing in takes a specific type of writing & its not suited for everyone. Making sure you address the questions donors have about viability, sustainability & mission focus shouldn't be left to chance or a template.
Custom Consulting & Collaboration
Sometime there are so many questions i'ts hard to separate where one begins & another ends. It's OK, we've helped lots of people through that. If you aren't sure where to start we can help you unpack your thoughts, goals and obstacles to clarify your vision and what it will take to make it real.
Program Concept Evaluation & Next-steps
" The planning & strategy sessions with Tracy helped us refine our focus, set our budget and develop a plan of action we could implement and get traction with early on despite having a non-traditional business model where we develop profitable programs inside a non-profit entity. Tracy’s recommendations have been very helpful, and he continues to be a friend & trusted partner of Square Mile Industries." - Braden Clark , Square Mile Industries
