    smart strategy 

    a compelling message


    Banyan Nonprofit Strategy works with you to strengthen your team's fundraising, marketing, operations and strategy with the long term in mind - but with the budget and capacity you have today.

    We deeply understand that nonprofits cannot sustainably support and grow their efforts without smart strategy and a compelling message that they can execute with the team they have in place today. And how difficult it can be to 

    We work with the capacity and budget you have to help you go from scattered to strategic so you know the work you are doing will move your mission forward. 

    We wrap all of this together to support nonprofits on a budget they can afford. From 1-on-1 mentorship to on-demand on-the-go support, we are the lean nonprofit team's right-hand.

    Banyan Nonprofit Strategy's services were designed by a former "nonprofit-do-it-all-er",
    specifically with lean nonprofit teams in mind.

    Ways We Can Work Together

    more about me

    I have been working and learning in the nonprofit field since 2011. All of my roles have been in lean nonprofits that didn't have the luxury of clear-cut departments or teams. Everyone truly did a bit of everything - which often left us all feeling overwhelmed and in crisis mode far too often.

    But learning to put in place straightforward systems and intentionally plan 
    helped me go from scattered to strategic in these roles. And now I'm on a mission to help you get there, too!

    At Banyan, we focus on  smart fundraising, communications & organizational strategy to help you go from crisis-driven to mission-driven in your work.

    My goal? To help passionate, purpose-driven teams and people (you!) to grow with intention as an organization. 

    and I've been in your shoes!

    Hi there, I'm Bonnie.

    From the first interaction, Bonnie was knowledgeable and informed about our organization. Her suggestions were valuable and targeted to our particular needs making the entire process efficient and productive.

      For the first time since becoming Executive Director, I feel comfortable and confident with our fundraising targets for 2021 thanks to her guidance and detailed plan!
