Nopar Consulting helps nonprofit organizations build financial sustainability based upon maximizing existing revenue potential and identifying new opportunities. Using a pragmatic, inclusive approach, consulting clients receive a customized solution based upon their unique business model.


  1. Strategic Solutions: Maximizing Philanthropic and Earned Income opportunities
    Nearly all nonprofits have a unique set of assets that can be monetized for fundraising purposes. Nopar Consulting helps identify these resources and cultivates new revenue streams. The process begins with a development audit of the organization’s existing assets followed by the creation of a customized development plan and set of tactics specifically for your organization.

“Carolyn is the consummate professional and took on the challenging task of writing a development plan for a relatively new community foundation without trepidation. She was able to gather, synthesize and organize the information provided to her quickly and asked important and relevant questions reflecting a strong grasp on the task. In a very short timeframe, Carolyn put together a detailed, realistic and outstanding plan and in presenting to the board was articulate, confident and able to achieve consensus and understanding from the board members.”
