How can Peter, Betsy and the Heller Group Team help you? A sample engagement:

Heller Fundraising Group brings decades of experience and accomplishment to the non-profit table. Our tagline line is: Your Aspirations, Funded. Our firm advises nonprofits on powerful fundraising strategies. And we stick with you every step of the way.

In the initial 10-20 hour consultation, we will work with you to assess your fundraising program and analyze your staff’s capacity for raising funds effectively. We will strategize with you to develop a road map of next steps, and “hold your hand” for your first three steps. For instance, we will work with you on strategies for getting organized, scheduling your meetings, and meeting with donors – including training on how to “make the ask.” Your Aspirations, Funded!
