We’re happy to announce that KG Consulting is now Abundance Strategies.

Our new name reflects our fundamental belief that a culture of abundance empowers our clients to succeed. For more than ten years, our team has been putting this belief into action and helping nonprofits raise millions of dollars. We’ve demonstrated again and again that a well-developed fundraising plan backed by a culture of positivity and participation enables organizations to tap into abundant resources and meet their fundraising goals.

principles

What We Believe

Abundance Strategies brings the following principles to all our engagements. We believe they are essential to ensuring organizations are equipped to grow and sustain their important work while reducing the strain that fundraising often creates.

  1. Mission Driven

    We are a mission driven firm. We work with progressive organizations that are making a difference in the fight for democracy, justice, equity and a healthy planet.

  2. Culture of Abundance

    Our philosophy is that when high impact organizations bring a positive attitude, full participation, and a well-developed plan, that resources will follow. Often groups approach development with a scarcity mindset. This leads to stress, turnover, and can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Our goal is to work together to build a culture of abundance.

  3. Capacity Building

    Our goal is to support clients to implement successful fundraising programs. We train staff, build systems, and work behind the scenes to develop the skills and structure needed for sustainable, diversified resources. We expect to end our engagements with our clients fully able to carry out the fundraising strategy and continue to grow.

  4. Systematic

    We believe that good fundraising is both an art and a science. By developing strong systems and processes, and implementing them with accountability and regularity, an organization greatly increases its chances for growth.

  5. Reality Based

    Abundance Strategies carefully considers organizational capacity, the environment, the issue area, the pipeline of prospects, staffing, and a number of other factors in crafting our development plans. We make sure that our recommendations are realistic, based on data, and immediately actionable.

  6. Integrity and Humility

    We continuously assess our impact and evaluate whether our clients are achieving the needed results. We ask whether our ongoing efforts continue to provide a return on investment. We also recognize that while we have extensive experience, we can always learn. We welcome input and maintain an open mind.

Abundance Strategies Fellowship Program

Launched in 2020, Abundance Strategies’ Fundraising Fellowship program trains, mentors, and supports the next generation of progressive fundraising professionals. Our immersive program provides fellows with a holistic understanding of development in progressive, political and non-profit organizations and offers the opportunity to connect with other fundraising professionals. We believe that increasing the diversity of the pipeline of fundraisers and supporting young fundraising professionals is critical to the success of the progressive movement, and strongly encourage people from diverse backgrounds including people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, disabled people, veterans, and others from historically underrepresented communities to apply.
