Hit Your Stride by Concentrating on Your Nonprofit’s Strengths

It’s a valiant effort to try anything and everything to secure funding for your nonprofit. But the truth is, you have strengths — and weaknesses (welcome to the club!).

Executive Director – My Sister's Place

Our experience with Spark Point’s Spark Time was invaluable. It gave us a clear picture of where our fundraising activities were lacking and a plan to move forward. The insights and recommendations we gained from the Spark Time presentation helped us make the case to our Board of Directors to increase our investment in fundraising resources. Overall, if you are looking for a solution that helps you take your fundraising to the next level with insight from a highly-experienced fundraising team at a great value, Spark Time is a great solution.


Kathleen Mogelgaard

President and CEO - Population Institute

At a time when we were seeking to diversify our revenue and build our fundraising infrastructure, the recommendations that came from our Spark Time engagement helped set us on a strategic path to pursue our goals. The analysis and recommendations that we received are resources we rely on to meet our needs. We’re grateful to have worked with Spark Point!

I just wanted to say thank you again for your (Spark Point's) help. Both Thomas Circle Singers and Capital City Symphony have been referring to their respective recommendations frequently throughout this giving season. We are so grateful for our time with you!

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.

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.
