With an overarching aim to achieve the greatest social impact, our commitment to clients embodies both our professional and personal values, resulting in our fully embracing the cause and mission of those assignments we accept. We also work with a limited number of clients at any one time to ensure we can provide intensive, strategic counsel and comprehensive services.
An effective nonprofit is relevant, strategic and supported, with strong leadership, a clear, distinctive and compelling mission, quality high-impact programs with both measurable and anecdotal results.
We believe fundraising success hinges on relationships, numbers, and leadership that not only drives but also supports the organization’s strategic agenda. Hartley Consulting focuses on all three essential elements with every client to meet or exceed fundraising goals, build successful development programs, develop strategic positioning and case statements, engage major gift and planned gift prospects, and conduct pre-campaign studies and capital campaigns.
Long-term effectiveness relies on the vision and strength of leadership to prepare for successors and establish the context for future support. Hartley Consulting has substantial expertise in working with leadership to build greater support through board and management assessment, governance, re-structuring, planning initiatives, recruitment and coaching.
