Nonprofit Consulting Services
Strategic planning for nonprofit organizations in Milwaukee, Madison & Brookfield
Reach more donors & raise more funds with effective nonprofit consulting.
Giersch Group consultants provide nonprofits with core organizational management guidance and leadership development through our general executive counsel service.
General executive counsel is similar to our general fundraising counsel services but broadens the focus from strictly fundraising to include other management issues faced by nonprofit executive directors. Strategic management consulting from the Giersch Group helps nonprofit organizations gain clarity, identify problems and establish goals important to your mission. Book a free 30-minute consultation today to learn more about our affordably-priced nonprofit consulting services.
Many executive directors are new career people who have never run a nonprofit. GEC services can serve as executive director training classes and complement our bookkeeping service for nonprofits.
While there are a few executive director training options, the Giersch Group general executive counsel has the benefit of:
- Working with you in your own office
- Discussing your own issues
- Moving the organization forward
- Growing your ability to run a nonprofit

Highlights of Giersch Group Nonprofit Management Consulting
General executive counsel is a monthly management discussion & analysis between the Giersch Group, the executive director of the organization, and sometimes key staff. This service aims to keep operations and fundraising in line with mission and program, bringing a long-term outlook to day-to-day operations.
This monthly meeting targets the issues that limit the growth potential and success of the organization. Meetings generally take 1-2 hours, scheduled for a recurring time and location. Your Giersch Group consultant will record minutes and present action items.

Sample Agenda of a General Executive Counsel Meeting
A typical meeting with your Giersch Group consultants may include a strategy for developing a board of directors, quarterly financial review, budgeting, and strategic planning, cash flow analysis, foundations & grant writing, and fundraising through major donor cultivation and individual donations.
Each month the Giersch Group will provide a short white paper on a topic essential to running your organization. We will review the topic and discuss its application in meetings.
