ZIM Consulting's Services
ZIM Consulting offers an array of services to help nonprofits build their capacity, improve their organizational structures and procedures, and, most importantly, increase their impact. All of ZIM's services are customized to your organization's needs, and there is a constant emphasis on taking projects beyond the planning phase and into implementation. ZIM's services fall into the following categories, but if you have a project that doesn't fall into one of our standard services, we'd be happy to talk to you about it to see if we still may be a fit. We also have partnerships with many other consultants and can refer you to the right person for your project if we're not a fit.
Grant writing takes a significant investment in time and resources and requires a specific skill set to be effective. ZIM offers customized grant writing and research services to help your organization broaden your funding base, increase your capacity, and have a greater impact.
Every nonprofit organization needs more resources. ZIM can help you find strategies to increase funding from current sources, identify new potential sources of funding, and diversity your revenue streams to increase long-term sustainability.
If your organization needs some guidance, ZIM can help. ZIM staff can lead you through the facilitation and/or training processes to help you define/accomplish your goals, increase your internal capacity, or train new staff and board members about a key area such as governance or fundraising.
If your organization is at an important crossroads in terms of mission, programming, or staffing – or if you just want to start planning ahead – ZIM can help you set a course and develop a plan for the future. We can help with overall strategic plans, program- or operations-specific plans, succession plans, emergency plans, and much more.
