Production of plans, study reports and tools for implementation are only a first step in building capacity. Through Periodic Counsel we provide important coaching, technical expertise, facilitation and an independent perspective. Our timely coaching and training sessions, guidance and expertise provide volunteers and staff with a greater level of comfort and knowledge as your organization moves forward with its growth plans.

One of our key objectives is to increase your organization's capacity to the point where our services are no longer required. Thus, we often begin with intensive support, including workshops and coaching, and then adjust the level of involvement as your in-house capacity and expertise evolves.


In addition, many smaller organizations operate with limited staffing. Periodic Counsel provides access to senior level expertise in a number of key areas enabling a small team to leverage its work to the greatest potential for an organization.

"Dree's guidance and mentorship throughout my fund development career has been instrumental in helping me to build confidence and develop the skills and expertise necessary to reach new heights, personally and professionally. Her coaching helped me secure significant gifts, navigate nuanced relationships, and build meaningful and enduring relationships with donors, colleagues, and stakeholders. I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from Dree and to work alongside her."
