Customized Consulting

Cause Effective’s “in residence” consultancies build nonprofits’ capacity to sustain themselves so they can achieve long-term, community-based change. Organizations often come to us at critical junctures to explore new avenues of support, to lift their boards to a new level of productivity, and to rethink fundraising strategies that have become stuck and unproductive.

Cause Effective consultancies achieve transformational impact by our careful attention to the needs of each client, based on their trajectory within the organization’s lifecycle, as well as other indicators. We apply carefully selected interventions, which are designed to match the nonprofit (board & management) leadership’s openness to change – and the ability to put our guidance into practice. Explore Cause Effective's approach to transformative consultancies and hear directly from our clients.

Funding partners we have supported by providing individual consulting support to their grantees include: Dyson Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The New York Community Trust, New York Women’s Foundation and United Way of NYC.

“Our grantees in the Mid-Hudson Valley are ingenious at stretching every program resource to serve their clients. We asked Cause Effective to help them extend their creativity to private fundraising and to kickstart their board members to become more confident askers. Cause Effective’s approach has inspired nearly every group to enhance their fundraising, driven by board leadership.”
