Company Overview
MJ CONSULTS believes that optimal fundraising happens when you effect the environment in which it takes place. Internal and external communications, prioritizing major gifts for high priority programs, strategic planning and operational efficiencies, board leadership and a willingness to envision what long term success looks like -- comprise the approaches principal Mary Jane Keitel can take to increase your organization's fundraising capacity.
MJ CONSULTS customizes the best implementation strategies to raise funds, build capacity, and ultimately expand the mission impact of our social sector organizations. She identifies organizational strengths and opportunities with a keen eye on funding potential. Together with your team, she maps out the groundwork for long-term resource development success.
