Strategic Thinkers. Skilled Tacticians. Creative Problem Solvers.

At Focus Fundraising, you’ll work directly with principals at the firm. However, we believe in the value of collaboration so we join forces with select consultants to provide key guidance so you raise more money.

Our network of skilled colleagues provides expertise in fundraising messaging and case development, prospect research, board development, and event management. Together, we are all focused on helping you and your development team meet — and exceed — your goal
