IGNITE Your Nonprofit Organization


Are you:

 Burned out by fundraising events,
➡ Frustrated trying to manage your volunteers and board
➡ Uncertain how to raise more money
➡ Struggling with your strategic plan
➡ Overwhelmed with all that you have to do

Being a nonprofit leader can be challenging and lonely. Where do you turn when you are stuck on these issues, trying to work though an idea or concept before acting on it, and just can't figure out what to do next? Your spouse, friends, significant other, family or the local bar tender.

Did they really sign up for this and what strain has it had on your relationship?

What if it didn’t have to be that way?

What if you had someone to provide feedback, give suggestions, and just help you feel less lonely in your leadership role. How much would that benefit you and your organization especially if this person has spent 30 years in the nonprofit sector? Someone who knows the questions to ask to help you find the answers and solutions you seek?

At Advancement Designs, we help nonprofits and nonprofit leaders through:

Leadership Coaching
Strategic Planning

Fund-Raising Audits, Plans
& Execution

How would things be different if you had the support you needed to keep you accountable and helped you turn things from chaos and confusion into having more confidence and control? 

People are looking for you to be decisive.

But you struggle to make sense of things, much less make decisions that could have lasting effects.  

Are you:

  • Feeling the overwhelm of chaos and need a roadmap to find some order and clarity?
  • Worried that your the path is unclear and need direction to find your way?
  • Struggling to gain control and seek clarity to put the pieces back together? 

While the pandemic and economy created some of this, you may have felt this way before.

Wherever you find yourself, you need the resources to find answer quickly and confidently or everything you have built could fall apart.

It is hard to think clearly, to make key decisions, and act decisively when everything feels out of control and moving to fast. No wonder it is hard to have any confidence in your next step. 

Before you know it, you are paralyzed and can't act.

Whether the challenge is to:

  • Communicate your message to the community
  • Pivot from lost opportunities
  • Recognize what is really going on.
  • Evaluate those efforts without judging them
  • Create actions based on your efforts
  • Learn from those actions rather than place blame
  • Stay accountable to the things you say you are going to do.

It is critical to get REAL, take the first step, and create momentum!

It seems easy to ask for help, yet so few actually do!

Are you worried about being "right" or not being "wrong"?

At Advancement Designs, we will craft the solution that fits what is real for you and your organization.  We know that every nonprofit is unique. Unique Resources, Unique Challenges, Unique Opportunities, and unique needs, so we help you find your unique solutions.

Whether you're in the path of the storm, hit with the brunt of it, or left to deal with the aftermath, your next step is crucial.  Take action, create movement, and build momentum to get you to solutions.


A rapid response is critical to find your way through any storm.
