We help communities and causes

  • Small, neighborhood based organizations like WOW Outreach which has 1 staff person, an active board and many volunteers working to end violence and empower kids in their community
  • Non-profits that serve large cities like Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice, which has designated fund development staff
  • Organizations that support a cause, not necessarily a place, like Beacon Tree, which helps families pay for mental health services for children
  • Faith-based organizations like Carriage Town Ministries, where we provided interim fund development support
  • Educational institutions like Kettering University that have sophisticated development departments – we supplemented their work to fund revitalization in the local community


  • City governments like the City of Flint, Michigan that apply for and receive federal grants with consortiums of community partners including non-profits and foundations
  • County governments which are also eligible for state and federal grants
  • Publicly funded entities like Community Action Agencies and Public Housing Authorities that are eligible for competitive government funding and want to leverage public dollars with other sources


  • Philanthropic foundations like the CS Mott Foundation that look for expertise to
    – evaluate best practices in their priority areas
    – build the capacity of their grantees
    – help their grantees work together collaboratively
  • Businesses giving through corporate foundations and sponsorships that are looking for local partners and opportunities to have a greater impact in their community
  • Government agencies that want to build the capacity of both their grantees and those who are eligible for their programs
  • Intermediaries like the United Way and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) that both receive public and private funds and then re-grant money to others
