Mandy Pearce
Owner, Funding for Good
Marie Palacios
Lead Consultant, Funding for Good

“I founded my company, Funding for Good, in 2009 during the Great Recession. It definitely wasn’t easy. But that experience helped me establish a mindset of experimentation and diversification of funding streams that still guides the company today. I’ve built a nimble team of consultants, enabling us to test out new services and products, quickly identify what works and what doesn’t, and prioritize the activities that are both financially and personally rewarding.

“I learned many lessons about launching, running, and growing a business the hard way. To make it easier for the next class of entrepreneurs, Funding for Good launched our 60-Day Nonprofit Consulting Boot Camp. We work with small business owners at every stage of growth, coaching them on how to build profitable and sustainable businesses that can weather economic ups and downs.”

Boot Camp Gets Results

One alum just had their first 6-figure year—without even consulting full time yet.

One alum raised her rates by $100/hour and tripled her monthly income—within the first month after Boot Camp.
One alum went from hourly to project-based pricing, kept 6 of 7 clients, and added 2 new clients—all in the first quarter after Boot Camp.

Funding for Good’s Track Record

We founded Funding for Good in 2009 during the depths of the Great Recession.

We grew from a part-time side hustle making $30K per year to a half-a-million-dollar business. 

We successfully raised our rates from $25/hour to $250+/hour.

We went from a small NC-focused consulting company to a nationally recognized and in-demand consulting company for nonprofits and small businesses of all sizes across the U.S.

Take the next step in growing your consulting business today!

Boot camp isn’t like other business coaching programs.

We limit enrollment in each session because Boot Camp is customized for every single participant.

Over 60 focused days, we’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to:

  • Identify and solve your unique business pain points.
  • Find the best strategies and shortcuts to create your ideal business—so you can benefit from lessons we learned the hard way. 
  • Hone your services, products, and pricing—so you can make more for doing work you love.
  • Help you weed out bad clients and land more of your dream clients.
  • Design systems that will save you time and increase client satisfaction.
  • Customize the templates that every consultant needs (like contract templates) but can never seem to find.
  • Coach you through navigating challenges and opportunities—as they arise.
  • Connect you to a network of experts who can build your website, design your brand and logo, incorporate your business, or upgrade your accounting.

Boot Camp isn’t a cookie-cutter coaching program or business accelerator. Boot Camp is about giving you exactly what you need to take your consulting business to the next level.

“For those considering signing up for FFG Bootcamp, I highly recommend taking the leap! The FFG Team had a great process to tailor the bootcamp experience to my specific business needs. Mandy and Marie asked thought-provoking questions, shared their insights, and provided feedback on my services, pricing, and ideal clients. I now feel confident and prepared to grow my business in 2024!”

Angie Sullivan

Founder and Principal, CEG Results

Funding for Good’s Boot Camp showed me the value of the services I provide and helped me realize how much I was underpricing those services. More importantly, Boot Camp taught me an entirely new way to communicate my services so that I’m highlighting their value. I’m looking forward to putting more work into my business and seeing the results, all from my experience in Boot Camp.

You Have Questions, We Have Answers

Can nonprofit consultants work from anywhere?

Nonprofit Boot Camp is open to consultants all over the country—and the world—who work with US-based clients. The truth is, when you run your own business, there are few geographic limitations. We’ve coached consultants who work in every US time zone—and as far away as Sicily.

What types of nonprofit consultants do you work with?

The array of services nonprofit consultants provide is seemingly endless. Nonprofits are businesses, which means they need many of the same services as businesses need, like IT and accounting. But nonprofits also have unique needs, such as fundraising and board development.

In Boot Camp, we work with every type of nonprofit consultant. For example:

  • Grant writers
  • Executive and leadership coaches
  • Fundraisers
  • Copywriters
  • Board development experts
  • Event planners
  • And more…
Is now a good time to start a nonprofit consulting business?

In 2023, it’s hard to miss the frequent headlines about economic turbulence, pending recession, and compounding layoffs. All of which can make many would-be nonprofit consultants wonder if they should wait to launch their business until the economy is stronger. Here at Funding for Good, we understand the feeling. We launched our business 14 years ago, during the Great Recession.

The truth is, the best time to launch your consulting business shouldn’t be determined by external factors. It’s about whether you are ready to put in the work of building a successful business. 

I'm looking for a career with flexibility and freedom. Will nonprofit consulting deliver that?

We recently surveyed nonprofit consultants online and learned that freedom, time, and flexibility are the top motivators for starting a business. Luckily, nonprofit consulting can deliver that, along with the ability to make more money, choose your clients, and work from anywhere. But we also hear from plenty of nonprofit consultants who are working tirelessly and barely making ends meet.

That’s where Boot Camp comes in. In Boot Camp, we give you all the best tips and systems to create a truly sustainable consulting business that works for you. So instead of having to learn lessons on your own (by making mistakes), you can benefit from our 40+ combined years of experience and everything we learned the hard way.
