From the Desk of The Consultancy

It is my hope that The Consultancy solidifies its place in society as a contributing factor to the success of the nonprofit sector — providing education to newly established charitable organizations in management structure, programmatic, and grant-related resources — they will acquire an improved capacity to serve their communities. It is one thing to be impactful but it critical to be adept in acquiring and managing adequate funding that supports its initiatives. For many Black and Brown-led organizations, the grants management skillset is not an innate function in the start-up process. In honing this experience over my professional tenure, I am able to benefit my clients and align with their endeavor. Our shared values, goals, and passion to serve others is what aligns our individual Missions. We want our communities to thrive!
