Company Profile

Company Overview
AltruNext has been partnering with nonprofits to advance the greater good since 2008. Initially, our focus was exclusively on fund development, especially organization assessments, grant writing support, and individual giving program implementation.

Over the years, we saw how smaller nonprofits frequently struggle. Many are simply trying to survive with limited resources while others are ultimately forced to close their doors. These worthy causes wanted to implement best practices, but they weren’t in a position to partner with larger consulting firms or hire highly-experienced staff.

This is where we saw an opportunity to help.

We incorporated as AltruNext in 2016, diversifying our team to reflect the broad needs of our clients. After all, fund development success is intertwined with strong operations, good governance, clear communications, and dynamic programs.

Today, we love to partner with small or medium-sized organizations to help them grow their impact. Our holistic approach helps nonprofits thrive.

We’re here to help you achieve your ambitious vision!

AltruNext is proud to be featured by Forefront on the select Consultants List as part of the Mission Sustainability Initiative (MSI).

Testimonial 3
"AltruNext approaches their partnership with Chicago Youth Programs with unmitigated professionalism and conscientiousness. They do not work on the periphery of our organization but instead take the time and care to deeply understand our values and vision. The breadth of expertise that we are able to mobilize as a result of our partnership isn't something that we would otherwise be able to afford and has paid dividends for us."
- Cinaiya Stubbs / (Former) Executive Director / Chicago Youth Programs
