 How Can We Help?

The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits can help build and transform your organization at any stage of growth – be it starting a new nonprofit or a mature organization. The Center specializes in these areas:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Board Development
  • Leadership Development – Team Building, Facilitation, Coaching and HR Assistance
  • Financial Services
  • Marketing
  • Fundraising

STRATEGIC PLANNING: Build a roadmap for your nonprofit

A strategic plan is a roadmap for your nonprofit to successfully deliver its mission. Whether a single session to devise a short-term, strategic directive, or leading a process over time to develop a long-term plan that directs the work of the organization, our consultants can guide you through a tailored process to meet the unique needs of your organization.

BOARD DEVELOPMENT: Build a solid support structure

Strong boards build houses – they also build nonprofits. Identify a healthy nonprofit, and you will likely find a healthy and well-functioning board of directors. Our consultants provide a wide range of board-focused services to improve the stability of your organization. These services range from an assessment of your current board to help identify gaps in skills and abilities that need to be filled, to leading seminars for your board members on collective board roles and responsibilities and best-practices. We will work with you to fit your board event, whether that is a board orientation, planning retreat, group training, or general meeting. We can also give guidance related to the role of fundraising and provide practical tools to guide your organization in board recruitment.

Leadership Development and Team Building: Unleash Creativity and Potential

The strength of your staff and leadership speaks to the strength of your organization. With staff assessments, team-building exercises, and one-on-one coaching, our consultants can increase the capacity for the leaders in your organization. From staff retreats, to leading change processes, our consultants can help your team know how they communicate best, process new information, and are “hard-wired.” Trained facilitators in a variety of personality and professional course work can lead your organization towards understanding themselves better and creating synergy.

Facilitation: Stay on Track

Sometimes you need an expert third-party to keep your meeting, retreats, or planning sessions moving in the right direction and OKCNP can provide the neutral facilitation that lets your entire group participate. Whether your organization is solving a problem, making a decision, or simply exchanging ideas and information – for a few hours or a full day – our consultants can lead your board, staff, or group in the right process for your organization’s future.

HR Consulting: Put People First

A strong staff can build a strong nonprofit. We can help keep things running smoothly with our HR consultants. If you have new hires, or are reorganizing your current staff, our custom compensation studies can help you target the right numbers. Looking to improve your leadership skills? We offer one-on-one coaching to help you further your potential and develop your leadership capacity. Additionally, with staff assessments, you can be sure that your team is working as effectively as possible

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT: Solutions for complicated budgets

Strong boards build houses – they also build nonprofits. Identify a healthy nonprofit, and you will likely find a healthy and well-functioning board of directors. Our consultants provide a wide range of board-focused services to improve the stability of your organization. These services range from an assessment of your current board to help identify gaps in skills and abilities that need to be filled, to leading seminars for your board members on collective board roles and responsibilities and best-practices. We will work with you to fit your board event, whether that is a board orientation, planning retreat, group training, or general meeting. We can also give guidance related to the role of fundraising and provide practical tools to guide your organization in board recruitment.

Marketing

Marketing trends are always changing and it’s a challenge to keep up with fresh content and changing mediums. Nonprofits need to communicate the value of your mission, raise brand awareness, and draw support for your cause. The Center can help create and implement a marketing plan to amplify your organization’s efforts, communicated your story, and help you reach your selected audience.

Increase Revenue: Sustain your work with Fundraising

Every nonprofit is challenged to build a fundraising strategy to sustain their organization. Our consultants can help you in your fundraising efforts by assessing your current fundraising plan, recommending fundraising practices, and even training your board members to “make the ask.” We can also craft feasibility studies to assess your fundraising potential for special projects and capital campaigns.

We have the breadth and depth of management and consulting expertise needed to answer your organization’s unique questions.
