Welcome to Social Velocity, I’m glad you’re here.
I believe very strongly that there is a better way for our great nonprofit sector to operate.
Over the course of my career in the nonprofit world (see my bio) I became increasingly aware of how hard nonprofits are struggling to create social change amid growing demand for their services and fewer resources. Nonprofits are wrangling ineffective boards, putting out fires instead of planning for growth, and chasing low-return fundraising activities. All of this results in burned out boards, staffs and donors, underfunded programs, and ultimately less social change.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
In order for nonprofits that are on the frontlines of the growing problems facing our country to create social change and become more sustainable, they need help. If a nonprofit could articulate the value they provide to a community, strengthen their organization, develop a groundbreaking board, chart a strategic direction, and attract more support, the critical solutions they offer our society could spread far and wide.
That is why I created Social Velocity — to help those nonprofit organizations that are solving problems to do so more effectively and sustainably. There is a tremendous opportunity to remake, rework and re-envision our great nonprofit sector.
At Social Velocity I am giving nonprofit staff, board members and donors the insight to use their limited resources more effectively, build a stronger board, attract more support, grow their programs, and sustainably finance their organizations. I consult with a nonprofit over a 3 to 12 month period to create a strategic plan, develop a financing plan, assess their fundraising function, launch a capacity capital campaign, engage their board of directors, or coach their staff to greater success.
The nonprofits I leave behind are more strategic, more sustainable, more engaged, more invested and above all, creating more social change in our communities.
I invite you to learn more about my approach:

There is a better way. I’d like to help you find it.
