GoodWorks Group provides a variety of consulting services to nonprofits, foundations and corporations. GoodWorks specializes in training of staff, volunteers, boards and executive leadership while providing counsel for annual funds, capital campaigns and other fundraising and cultivation initiatives.

"The next big idea in fundraising goes beyond the donor-centric mantra. It's about a true partnership between donors and the institutions they care about. Nonprofits that fail in integrating this two-sided market approach will fail to retain donors and will be fighting a battle to maintain rather than prosper." Daniel J. Mansoor


GoodWorks has provided ideas and advice to nearly a hundred organizations in the US and abroad. This advice includes annual fund and ongoing fundraising assistance and counsel and capital campaign feasibility studies, campaign preparation, campaign execution and monitoring. The three most popular workshops are the "Art of the Ask" on successful solicitation, "Seven Habits of Effective Boards" on sustained advancement and transformation of your governing board,  and the new "In the Donor's Mind: Science of Giving" which will dramatically alter how you think about fundraising and your donors.


Family foundations, federations, and corporations seek advice from GoodWorks to become more satisfied donors and effective grantmakers. Strategic philanthropy is the focus of this effort leading to more efficient, effective and rewarding giving.
