The principals of The Winslow Group established the firm in 1983 following years of dedicated service as an employee of and consultant to nonprofit organizations. We each have more than 40 years of experience providing fundraising and management counsel as well as associated research and computer assistance.
We have formed strategic alliances with experts in areas whose specialties enhance our own, including organizational planning consultants, marketing and public relations specialists, architects, graphic designers, and video producers. The benefit of this team approach is that your organization has access to the professional guidance it may need in areas that complement the fundraising process.
We draw on the knowledge and experience of these professionals as needed rather than maintaining our own full-time staff of specialists. As a result, our fees are lower than a larger consulting firm might charge.
By providing the services of known and trusted experts with whom we have successfully worked on other projects, we can ensure timely and efficient project execution at a reasonable cost to your organization.
