About Us


Toni Turner and Karen Knox have a combined 55 years of nonprofit management experience in fundraising, grant writing, special events, and communications. They have each held senior development positions in a variety of organizations, including educational institutions, state agencies, and health and human services organizations.

Through workshops, programs and services, we can help nonprofit organizations plan their development strategies and work through their plans.

In today’s turbulent economy, communities need the support and services of nonprofits more than ever before. Capacity building includes practices that improve and enhance an organization’s ability to achieve its mission, attain its goals, and ensure sustainability.  Our workshops offer objective analysis and best practices to help nonprofits identify ways to strengthen their ability to fulfill their mission and enhance their capacity to make a positive impact on the community.

To attain your funding goals in this highly competitive economy, you first need to understand the current philanthropic landscape and how to triumph over the competition.  Our seminars introduce you to the trends that define philanthropy in America today and offer insights, tools, techniques, and strategies to win the ultimate prize – funding.

In this Darwinian environment, the competition for funding increases every year. It is no longer survival of the fittest, but of the smartest. We can help those in the nonprofit arena understand the challenges of today’s funding climate, how to identify potential donors, and with tools to develop winning strategies for success.

Before beginning the quest for funding, grant seekers must understand the current philanthropic environment. Who are their best prospects for funding?  What do funders look for in a proposal?  What are the best strategies for requesting funds? Our Grant Writing Workshop provides participants with insights, tools, and strategies for fundraising success.

We are a “Boutique” Consulting Firm, here to work with you to identify your development needs, and help you meet your goals.
