Putting the Pieces Together

Engagements are led by CauseWired’s senior consultants with decades of combined experience working with leaders in the nonprofit sector. They can help you to navigate the complexities of messaging, cultivation and stewardship – and build relationships to achieve your organization’s goals.

With vast experience helping nonprofit leaders succeed, our team understands that even the most successful nonprofit executives can benefit from a fresh perspective, and from collaboration with trusted, skilled and knowledgeable advisors.

Let’s talk about:

  • Creating a new and powerful case for support
  • Board development and increased engagement
  • Creating a winning annual campaign
  • Staff assessment and professional development
  • Actionable intelligence and research
  • Diversifying your philanthropic base of support
  • Planning for a major capital campaign
  • Building a stronger internal culture of philanthropy
  • Strengthening the link between communications and fundraising

Civil society, the social sector, and philanthropy are changing. We face massive challenges as organizations and institutions. And networks really matter. So does listening and collaboration. We can be your trusted partner for growth and impact. We’re used to working on unique and challenging projects. We’re not the cookie-cutter solution, we’re the problem solvers. 


We are not traditional fundraising consultants. And we’re a good deal less expensive. Our work centers around the case, the strategy, the research and your goals. Whether that’s advocacy, donor relations, a major campaign, or a strategic planning effort. Our work fits you – not the other way around.

CauseWired strengthens the efforts of our clients and their causes by creating an emotional connection with target audiences, online and off. In every assignment, we’re working toward sustainability long after our team leaves. Every campaign should increase capacity. Every communications effort should improve in-house skills and understanding. Every strategic plan should include realistic goals for programs and revenue. Every corporate assignment must address real-life business goals.

Working with nonprofit organizations, foundations, individuals, companies and advocacy groups, we connect a community of voices for change. Our services include:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Development Planning
  • Campaign Strategy and Communications
  • Case Development and Research
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Social Media Strategy
  • Executive and Board Coaching

There is no master template for CauseWired services. Every assignment is unique because every client faces unique challenges and opportunities. You don’t want cookie-cutter “solutions” and we run a small firm because we don’t like delivering them.

Let’s talk.
