WHY CHOOSE KENNARI?
Kennari Consulting has been an invaluable guide and support in improving our fundraising. In our years with them, we have increased revenue by nearly 30 percent, and developed the infrastructure to keep increasing as we expand our vital programming. They have always been there when we called. They have improved our board, our donor software usage, and our special events. If you follow their advice and do the work, the reward will be far greater than the cost.
Kennari Consulting has been an invaluable partner in helping us navigate through leadership and staff changes, and has provided a strong framework to lead us toward sustainability. The staff provides a wide array of experience, skills, and expertise, but it is their passion and dedication that makes them so much fun to work with.
It is challenging for a board to evaluate its own health and effectiveness. Kennari helped us create a deliberate board development process, and now it’s part of our regular agenda. It has been especially helpful with board recruitment and fundraising, but it has also strengthened our board by increasing member engagement with one another and our programs.
We wanted to expand awareness of our mission and the impact of chemical addiction to the community, build our donor base, and provide an opportunity for others to become involved and make an impact. Kennari Consulting provided information, training, and technical and moral support. After five years, we can look back and see how important and valuable their knowledge and skills were to our success.
Through the feasibility study process with Kennari Consulting, we were able to develop our Moving to Main capital campaign in a way that fit our community. By responding to the results of the study, we let our stakeholders know we valued their input. The community has responded favorably by supporting our facility purchase and our move to downtown Lowell.
