Your business values the importance of giving back to the community through philanthropy. You want to realize maximum impact from the time, resources and money you contribute. With hundreds of worthy nonprofits (NPO) and dozens of requests for everything from money to board representation, it’s challenging to know who, what, when, where, how and how much is going to make a significant difference, and what will resonate with your leaders, associates and customers. I can help.

Your nonprofit is growing - demand is high and resources are short. You need more money, more community awareness, more mission engagement, and there’s just not enough time in the day to get it all done. Change is constant and your teams are passionate about their work, but the messaging isn’t consistent. Your board is strong but you need a different type of involvement to get to the next level, and you were ready to get there yesterday. I can help.

Dear Partners In Empowerment,
Navigating philanthropy isn't always easy. During my career as both a for-profit professional who made recommendations on community involvement and then as a nonprofit leader striving for increased impact and sustainability, I found myself at several challenging crossroads. Unclear communication and missed opportunities had me considering how we could do better, because the rules of engagement aren't always black and white. I learned valuable lessons, got creative with resources and collaborations, and achieved the unexpected by aligning with diverse civic-minded partners and forging forward for results with lasting impact and life changing outcomes.
A strong, active commitment to civic responsibility serves corporate interests as well as community needs by increasing employee productivity and moral while boosting team and customer loyalty. It’s a win for the community and a win for the business.
I help businesses and nonprofits eliminate the grey areas of community involvement, achieve meaningful social change and build bridges to lasting significance by leveraging my three decades of professional experience in community engagement, corporate philanthropy and nonprofit leadership.
My life's purpose is rooted in lifting others because I have witnessed the absolute transformation of people, communities and futures when a path for good is forged.
I believe together we will change the world for a better today and a brighter tomorrow. Ready to start? Let's connect!
