The 2023 Nonprofit Consulting Conference Online is designed to educate, inspire, and engage consultants so they grow their reach and revenue.

Why Are We Doing This?

Consultants asked for it and we are delivering! After a successful inaugural nonprofit consulting conference in 2022, participants reached out to say they want MORE. They want more targeted training, ready-to-use tools, and opportunities to network with diverse colleagues in the field.

Mandy Pearce from Funding for Good and Holly Rustick from Grant Writing and Funding- two leading experts in the sector, are partnering once again to deliver a no-nonsense, high-impact, virtual conference for consultants who are ready to learn and engage.

Why offer a 2-day conference to share our top timesaving tips and secrets to success?

That’s easy. There is more than enough work to go around and in the consulting world and “one size truly does not fit all.” Our conference organizers and presenters believe that nonprofits are the heartbeat of our communities. When nonprofits reach out for support, they deserve to contract consultants who have the skills and experience to help them be successful. Consultants deserve to work in the field they love without compromising their personal health and income.

Nonprofit Consultants have this to say about the 2022 Conference…

“This exceeded expectations. Each speaker was a homerun. They were generous with their time and sharing their expertise. Wow! just WOW!”

“All of the speakers were amazing! But I would say that I learned the MOST from Mandy Pearce, Holly Rustick, and Dr. Bev. Those particular sessions gave me new ideas that I will begin to implement immediately and that I think will reap significant benefits for my consulting business!!”

“It [NPC] was just what I needed to give me the confidence to take my business to the next step. I was struggling feeling like an imposter…forgetting how much I have already done helping launch 2 nonprofits and starting my own businesses. It was great getting to network with other consultants and get some concrete help planning how to serve clients better. My confidence increased….And …I raised my rates! I have had 3 new prospect calls this week and am in the process of setting up 2, 40k contracts with new clients after the conference.”

“To the organizers – you all were so energetic that it made this conference a fun learning experience. To the speakers – I appreciated the passion for sharing their knowledge and skills to train others. I learned so much and grateful for the wisdom!”

“I increased the rate on a proposal that was in progress, created my mailchimp account and invited my spreadsheet list to add themselves, and got all fired up by Dr. Bev!”
