Hello, I'm Joanne Oppelt

I help executive directors of small to midsize nonprofits create a vibrant fundraising culture and adopt proven financial techniques to find hidden resources and advance their missions.. 

I've spent more then 30 years in the nonprofit arena as a program developer, grant writer, foundation officer, statewide technical assistance provider, federal grants reviewer, development director, executive director, and consultant, I've developed programs from scratch. I've found funding for new programs. I've rebuilt broken fundraising systems. I turned around a failing agency. I know what it takes for a nonprofit to be successful.

Your main goal is to not only survive, but thrive. You want to be able to meet the pressing needs you face. You want your staff to have the tools they need to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. You want to pay your staff fairly, recruiting and retaining quality employees. And all this takes money. 

Money I can help you get. I know how to fundraise on a tight budget. I know how to leverage resources so costs go down. I know how to rally the community to support your mission. I know know how to build relationships that produce positive, long-lasting programmatic and financial results. I've done it before. Skip all my years of trial and error and learn from me. 

As an international trainer, prolific author, and former college professor, I know how to impart what I have learned to others. Take advantage of my experience so you can start meeting your financial goals today.  

Let me help you you meet or exceed budget, build your reserves,and advance your mission. Contact me. I am just an appointment away.
