"Kathy has significant skills and expertise in project development and implementation and in capturing the essence of the project in a comprehensive and usable written report. She brought her expertise to the table and listened to the needs of our organization. Based on our needs she worked with us to develop the project so that it would provide the information that we needed. She blended her expertise with our needs rather than have us fit our needs into a preconceived package. The project required a variety of skills including developing questionnaires for individual and group use, organizing and facilitating focus groups, and taking many data points and organizing them into a comprehensive set of information. Kathy had excellent skills in all these areas. Kathy delivered a final product to our organization that was comprehensive, clear and usable. I would not hesitate to use Spark Nonprofit Consulting again." Read more >

About Spark Nonprofit Consulting

Spark Nonprofit Consulting, LLC

 ignites nonprofit effectiveness and financial sustainability by supporting nonprofit leaders in their fund development, strategy setting, community engagement, and board building efforts.

We stand for inspiration, self-sufficiency, and integrity in relationships, and we conduct every aspect of our business according to these values.

Led by Kathleen Welsh Beveridge, Spark Nonprofit Consulting, LLC is registered as a professional fundraising counsel with the Department of State’s Bureau of Charitable Organizations, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

An investement in Spark NPC can build your organization in four major areas:


An active development program means more money for a nonprofit organization’s mission and is a critical step toward greater financial sustainability. If funding streams are limited, a new or expanded development program can identify new resources, perhaps supporting mission-centered activities that can’t be funded in other ways. Spark will help you get started quickly and with confidence, whether you are laying the groundwork for a development program, helping a less experienced development professional get up to speed, or seeking the resources to make a development position possible. These efforts will soon pay for themselves.


Board Building

Effective boards can ignite fundraising and other areas of nonprofit growth to enhance mission attainment and financial sustainability. The key is to be ready before you invite exciting, new, high-potential board members into your organization. Spark can help you find the right leaders, philanthropists, and professionals to accomplish your mission, and manage the experience you give them so that they are energized and inspired to take action on your behalf. Whether you need to start a vibrant board or generate new life on an existing board, Spark can get you get moving in the right direction.


Major Gifts

In fundraising, as in many other areas, relationships are king. They are the foundation of any major gifts program. Spark can help you confidently build that foundation with tools to educate and inspire board members, executive directors, and staff to cultivate relationships and ask for gifts. Creating an effective major gifts initiative is one of the best investments that a nonprofit organization can make in its future. Your nonprofit can do it and Spark can help.


Community Engagement

Community engagement is mission critical for nonprofits. The credibility, fundraising success, and ability to attract a quality pool of volunteers and board members are all impacted by a nonprofit organization’s community engagement efforts.

There are strategies you can employ to get people throughout your community excited about your mission and eager to join the cause. Do you have trouble finding volunteers? You need to engage them first! Spark can help you build community engagement that will ignite your mission effectiveness and financial sustainability. Ask us how!
