What’s New?


Smaller organizations (under $3 million) are in great need of fundraising help because they often do not have sufficient fundraising capacity on staff, and do not have the budget to outsource. That is why Finlay Consulting Services offers Pro-Bono Consultation Grants. Application and eligibility requirements will be published in our SOLUTIONS NEWSLETTER. We anticipate one  grant round each year to support a discrete fundraising project for a deserving non-profit organization in need of consultant support. Questions can be directed to [email protected].

Applications will be reviewed in a competitive process, and a pro bono grantee will be selected. Prior to award, the selected grantee will be required to verify organizational budget, 501(c)3 status, and meet all other eligibility requirements.  Application instructions, deadlines, and eligibility requirements will be always be posted on our FACEBOOK PAGE, TWITTER ACCOUNT, and featured in our SOLUTIONS NEWSLETTER, so be sure to join our MAILING LIST to receive timely updates, news, and special offers.

If you think your organization could benefit from our help, please CONTACT US.
