Become an Irresistible Force for Your Cause!
In a competitive fundraising arena, it's not enough for an
organization's leadership to simply convey the facts to secure the support of volunteers and donors. In most
cases, facts and figures have already been spelled out. What makes the difference between getting a yes or a


no? The answer isn't mysterious, but it also isn't easy to execute. Volunteers and contributors need to feel moved to act, to get it deep in their bones why the organization's mission merits their investment.

14001 N. 50th Street, Scottsdale, AZ 85254 Telephone: 602-380-7230 Email: info@solutionsmc.net We realize how challenging it can be in the nonprofit sector. Demand for programs and services seem to increase every year, yet funding sources are an ongoing struggle. Just like the for-profit sector, nonprofits cannot generate revenue without marketing their causes and missions. So many charities are doing great work, but as many have told us, "We're the best kept secret in town," or, "We wish we could do more." That's why we want to help your nonprofit stand out more so it can make enough money to do more. Its mission is too important to accept the status quo. Let us partner with you on your next project or plan. We know a thing or two about doing things creatively, strategically, and affordably. Visit our website and check out our Services, our Portfolio, and what others have said about us. Then, give us a shout to discuss your needs. No charge for the first telephone or in-person consultation and no obligation after that. We think you'll like what you hear. VisionConnect Consulting
