Strategic Fundraising For Non-Profit Organizations

Constellation Advancement is a boutique consultancy firm that provides professional advice and hands-on help for your non-profit organization. We counsel about how to raise money and best manage your institutional advancement function with reliable revenue results and rational expenses.

Constellation is made up of nonprofit vice presidents who later turned to consultancy. We understand your challenges. We respect your hard work. We are not talking heads who disappear at the end of the day. We give you a real sense of value and partnership. We use hands-on approaches that improve effectiveness and bottom-line numbers.

The challenges of the world since COVID are like nothing we have seen. Employment markets are disrupted, economies are fitful, feasibility studies have changed, and outreach is different. We were in the trenches during 9/11 and the Great Recession. We understand crisis environment fundraising. We can help you with the new challenges of the day. We furnish insight based on industry best practices. We design muscular, productive weekly outreach meetings that drive results. We also counsel about restructuring and even merger scenarios.

At Constellation, we like to say that your mission is our mission.
