Who We Are

For over 35 years, Cause Effective has strengthened the nonprofit sector by helping more than 6,000 nonprofits build sustainable communities of supporters.  

We provide carefully tailored counsel to help nonprofits diversify funding, raise more money from individuals, activate boards of directors, and get the greatest value from special events and anniversaries so they can achieve long-term community change.

  • We design in-depth, customized interventions: from one-day board retreats to multi-year governance and fundraising strategies.
  • We lead interactive workshops that engage our client organizations and their peers.
  • We offer timely ideas through our in-person counsel, e-newsletter, Blog and the Special Events Toolbox.

We partner with each client to create a powerful, customized roadmap that builds on the organization’s history, relationships and cultural values to expand its resource potential.
