Founding Philosophy

West Wind Consulting Strategies in Fund Raising, LLC was founded to promote philanthropy in all its forms. Philanthropy is a powerful thing. It is the result of sound, ethical and meaningful fund-raising programs and initiatives. It is rooted in the tenets of mutual respect and trust between a nonprofit and its donors, and is nurtured through careful thought, creativity, positive energy, and grace. It can propel an entire organization to reach new heights well beyond the success of the programs directly supported by the dollars raised. When philanthropy is inspired by creative vision, a powerful mission, exceptional leadership, and a sound and strategic business plan, it can help an organization become its very “best self.”

West Wind Consulting helps clients climb to that higher plateau by providing focus, strategy, professional expertise and coaching throughout the climb. We offer our clients a safe space and a calm and experienced sounding board where they are free to test ideas, talk through challenging circumstances, ask questions, and be assured that they will always receive honest, respectful feedback.
