Teresa Huff - Adeo Development Solutions - Nonprofit Strategic Planning and Grant Writing Strategy

Running a nonprofit can be overwhelming.

When you’re deep in the trenches, you may find yourself wondering…

  • How can we reach more people about our work in the community?
  • How can we get the board more involved?
  • I keep hearing about grants, but where do we start?
  • Why aren't we seeing more success with our grant applications?
  • How can I plan for the future when I'm so busy I can't even keep my head above water?

I've helped nonprofits triple their funding and, as a result, exponentially increase their impact.

My work since 2005 has brought in several million dollars for public and private schools and nonprofits. I’ve written successful federal, state, and local foundation grants and tax credit program applications. 

I specialize in giving nonprofits the support they need to fulfill their vision.

My why is to help you fulfill your why.

Here's how it works:

Step 1.

Choose your package and click to pay and book. 

Step 2.

You’ll get an email confirmation with the meeting details.

Step 3.

Meet | Strategize | Implement = Change the world.

Pick your nonprofit's secret weapon:

Bring a cup of coffee and have a seat on my virtual nonprofit couch.

My clients are amazed at how many goods we can pack into a 45 minute call.

In each session:

  • We'll talk through your nonprofit's biggest challenges you're facing today.
  • I'll give you custom recommendations of targeted strategies and tools specifically for your nonprofit.
  • You'll leave with a list of action steps - things you can implement NOW - so you have a clear path forward.
  • You'll get a complimentary audio recording of the call so you can reference it later.

“This was SO helpful! Because of our call last week, 

I figured out a small shift I needed to make when approaching funders. 

It’s amazing how well it’s working already!”  

-Executive Director of a National Nonprofit

Time to get your second wind. 

It’s your call.

This nonprofit strategy package is for leaders ready to commit to serious action.

The session may be in-person or virtual. Typically the executive director and two or three board members participate.

This intensive is for you if you are:

  • Spread so thin with fundraising you're on the verge of burnout.
  • Considering grants as a fundraising strategy but don't know where to start.
  • Need to shift your services and/or donor outreach online.
  • Looking for new ways to communicate your message to donors.
  • Need help figuring out your next best action steps to maximize your impact on the community.

This is NOT for you if you are:

  • A brand new nonprofit looking to establish a full strategic plan. (You need a much more intense strategy package for that.)
  • Still trying to set up a board of directors and develop clear messaging about your work. (We have other work to do instead.)
  • Only getting funding from 1-2 sources and no ideas for more. (Again, we need to roll up our sleeves with a bigger planning package first.)

With this package, we will:

  • Commit to a 2.5-hour intensive to talk through your nonprofit's challenges and develop an execution-focused plan.
  • Evaluate your nonprofit's current services and fundraising.
  • Look at your grant readiness and help you figure out where to start.
  • Develop goals and outline a plan to get there.
  • Put together a road map spreadsheet of specific action steps and recommended resources.
  • Send you off with a complimentary audio recording of the call for easy reference later.
  • BONUS: Complimentary access to my video course, "Top 10 Myths About Grants."
  • BONUS: 4 weeks of email or Voxer support.

“Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with us

Your suggestions helped and we are moving forward with them. We appreciate you!!!

-Nonprofit Executive Director

Ready to get serious about taking nonprofit action? I am.

The quicker you book, the quicker we get your nonprofit moving forward.

Ready, set, go.

So often, board members want to help. They try to help. 

They believe 100% in supporting their nonprofit strategy – they just don’t know how

They don’t understand their role. They don’t know how grants work. 

I’m on a mission to change that.  

This training is for you if you:

  • Struggle with sorting out a clear nonprofit strategy.
  • Keep hearing, "Just find some grant funding!" but no one seems to know what that really means.
  • Need to evaluate your potential readiness for grant funding.
  • Are not making the best use of your board's time and talents.
  • Need an objective perspective on nonprofit chain of command and operational structure.

With this package, we will:

  • Have a 60-minute board training session.
  • Include training, interactive activities, Q&A time, and discussion.
  • Cover the topics most relevant to your situation.
  • Address questions specific to your nonprofit.
  • Include handouts and recommended resources to reinforce learning and retention. (After all, I was a teacher...)

Example topics include:

  • Grant Basics: What You Must Know Before You Start
  • Busting the Myths About Grants
  • Nonprofit Grant Readiness
  • Nonprofit Organization and Operation
  • Fundraising Strategies That Don't Make You (or Your Donors) Cringe

“I’ve previously attended workshops on grant writing, but never left feeling like 

I had gained any meaningful knowledge about the process. After this session, 

I finally feel like I understand the basics and have an idea of what we need to do to be successful.”  

-Training Attendee

The session may be in-person or virtual. (In-person is ideal when feasible.)

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb

Let’s get together.

“You’ve been a real godsend for us. Working with you has made such a difference for our center.

We appreciate your hard work so very much. I can’t thank you enough for all you do.

-Nonprofit Board President

Some nonprofits need support on a bigger scale.

I work with a few select clients who need ongoing stability, implementation support, and accountability to hit their nonprofit strategy goals.

This long-term approach is ideal because it fosters consistency. We build a cohesive network of stability to promote growth.

Since I’m committed to giving 100% to each client, this premium service is only for a limited number of nonprofits. 

This support may be a fit if you:

  • Have an established board and executive director.
  • Already have funding sources, but you need to expand your capacity.
  • Need consistency to synthesize your team and develop a cohesive nonprofit strategy.
  • Need ongoing accountability and support as you work toward your goals.
  • Are committed to hard work and long-term investing in your nonprofit's success.

“Things sure are different around here since you came along! 

We’ve grown so much and it’s helped our clients tremendously. Thank you.

-Nonprofit Board Treasurer
