Who We Are
Convergent Nonprofit Solutions is the merger of five respected national nonprofit consulting firms, comprising dozens of the most experienced nonprofit experts in the country.
Our team has worked with several hundred nonprofit organizations in 49 states and internationally. Through our unique collaboration, we are able to provide outcome-driven solutions that help our clients overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.
The Investment Driven Model™ utilized by Convergent has been implemented successfully for two decades, helping all types of nonprofit organizations achieve significantly greater fundraising results. Our innovative tools have consistently maximized the dollars raised from individual funding sources by effectively translating specific outcomes into specific benefits for existing stakeholders and potential investors.
Convergent does more than implement innovative fundraising techniques. Convergent is a comprehensive solutions company dedicated to addressing our nonprofit clients’ organizational, resource development, and sustainability needs. Our experts focus on providing outcome-driven solutions customized to fit each unique situation.
In every Convergent campaign we develop an Organizational Value Proposition™ that helps us to make a strong investment case to potential “investors,” which is what we call the businesses, individuals, foundations, and public entities that provide funding to our clients. We don’t beg for charity or take up donations. We make a strong rational appeal for substantial financial investment in projects that deliver value.
More about the Convergent approach:
- We provide comprehensive campaign management services that minimize the burden on your staff. We can manage the day-to-day details of your campaign so that you can focus on your own full-time job.
- We make professional presentations to each funding prospect, detail a customized investment proposal, and actually make the “ask”, minimizing the burden on your volunteers. We do the heavy lifting and strategically focus your volunteer leadership on a small number of tasks that can have an outsized impact on results—without a substantial time commitment.
- We maximize funding by complementing traditional emotional appeals with strong rational appeals for support. By demonstrating value, benefits, impacts, and ROI (return on investment), Convergent is able to get its clients to the front of the funding line in a competitive fundraising environment.
