Map Your Nonprofit’s Path to Financial Stability

Strategy Spark includes a thorough analysis of your organization's inner workings, an in-depth information gathering and goal-setting phase, and a strategy conversation that leads to a customized fundraising plan that paves a path to success.

After all, your nonprofit is one of a kind. Your fundraising strategy should be, too. 

Let us guide you in navigating the funding landscape as your organization evolves. 

Elevate Your Fundraising With a Fresh Perspective

If you have a bold and innovative new approach, are going through a transitional period, or are looking for a catalyst to drive growth, then you're at a critical turning point and require a fresh fundraising plan. One that…

  • Reveals what’s working and what isn’t. 
  • Separates your strengths from your weaknesses.
  • Informs a sustainable model for financial growth. 

Because you don’t have the resources to put toward fundraising strategies that won’t work.

Increase Your Impact With an Implementation Plan

A plan for change is good. But what’s even better? Knowing how to make it a reality.

Strategy Spark provides an integrated, customized fundraising strategy based on your organization’s mission, theory of change, and fundraising strategies to date. But it also gives you a detailed task calendar that breaks down the big ideas into actionable steps.

We've designed fundraising plans for numerous organizations that have gone on to successfully achieve their fundraising goals because of our expert guidance, coaching, and support.

Strategy Spark projects typically take between six and twelve months.

Director of Development – JOIN for Justice

Spark Point was an amazing thought partner and helped us develop a strategy  that was creative, bold, and achievable, and would enable us to raise the funds needed to implement our strategic growth plan. They tailored their work to our unique circumstances, and they brought experience, expertise, and fantastic listening skills, and it led to an incredibly strong set of deliverables -  our growth campaign strategy and detailed plan to achieve our goals  Spark Point was responsive to us at every turn, and we really felt they were “in it” with us. They were great to work with throughout the process and I am grateful for our strong partnership.  If we need to go through another planning process like this in the future, we will definitely reach out to them.

Executive Director – District Alliance for Safe Housing

DASH began working with Whitney and her team in 2019. Throughout that time, I've been impressed by their collective skill in the full-cycle of non-profit fundraising - from strategy design to implementation and stewardship. With a lens on equity and impact, Spark Point took the time to learn the unique needs of DASH and effectively assisted in the delivery of successful high-yield campaign that surpassed year-end target goals by over 20%!

Chelsea Geyer

Executive Director - DC127

I was worried we were going to get a distant consultant who would try to apply cookie-cutter solutions to our organization. Instead, Spark Point provided intensely individualized plans, took time to understand our organization, and created workloads that matched our available resources. They made sure we walked away with a plan that we could implement on our own. They were responsive and gave me the tools to be a better fundraiser.

Former Interim Rector - The Church of the Epiphany

I love Spark Point. They are nimble and results-oriented. They were able to look at the whole picture—the people, the programming, and the day to day cycle of having multiple people come through the doors -- and see where we had opportunities to make even more of a difference. They made me feel emboldened, renewed, and that I could do more for the community.

Chief Program Officer - Young Survivor Coalition

In working with Spark Point, we gained a relationship with a team that understands our mission and wanted to use their skills and expertise to further that mission. I felt that Spark Point was invested in our work, even though they weren't here full time, and they are approachable, enthusiastic, and professional. Ultimately, we didn't just win a big grant, we gained a partner that we could run things by and a new level of knowledge.

Co-Founder - Brightest Young Things and Presenting Partner for FotoWeekDC

As a small arts organization, funding is for FotoDC is a constant struggle and a high priority. Whitney really took a personal interest in our projects, which I believe gave her AND us the edge to be successful in these applications. Knowing that this part of the job was handled allowed us to focus on programming and our core mission. In effect, Spark Point helped us grow and mature as an organization.


Steve Sagner

Former Associate Dean for Development - NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Whitney Brimfield is an excellent proposal writer, prospector, and strategist for approaches to institutional funders, and I know that many clients love and value her work. She undertook a complex diagnostic project for NYU's engineering school—identifying academic and programmatic areas where we might have potential fundraising success with foundations and corporations, and developing approaches for each field. I recommend her highly, and just this week gave her name to someone looking for a great consultant!

Marjory Moore

Former Chief Development Officer – National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association

Spark Point’s team has a lot of integrity and they really drive for results. They have the ability to establish credibility quickly, address tough challenges, and move things forward. They are very insightful about the ways that different people approach their work, which makes them a great resource and a real thought partner.
