 Our Impact

Since 1981, Cause Effective has helped thousands of nonprofits to become more strategic in how they fundraise and “friendraise,” which has contributed to the improvement and support of countless communities and individuals.
As a result of the work we’ve done together, Cause Effective clients have:

  • Raised more than $75 million in additional funds
  • Secured $6+ million worth of in-kind support
  • Added 600+ new board members to their teams
  • Established 200+ board fundraising committees
  • Produced thousands of successful special events and anniversary campaigns that raised visibility, funds and friends

In 2016 an outside evaluator hired by Cause Effective to do a three year retrospective study confirmed that capacity-building consulting can result in substantive long term change among our clients. Read the proof:

“By working with Cause Effective we were able to identify the missing pieces on our board and recruit people who will be able to inform our larger strategic vision with real intention.”
