American Philanthropic provides nonprofit organizations with experienced advice, coaching, and mentoring. We also help by providing high-value time on task in the areas of analysis and strategy; direct mail and other programs; research, writing and design; and publications and communications.

All of our services are customized to suit the particular needs of our clients. And all of them revolve around what we believe to be the essential components of nonprofit success. These components emphasize:

  • the importance of planning.
  • the necessity of building strong relationships with your supporters and incorporating them into the life of your organization.
  • working with—rather than against—the philanthropic marketplace.
  • creating systems that allow your staff to execute on the little things with patience, persistence, and consistency.
  • making development central to your organization's operations—in the conviction that good development leads to organizational effectiveness.
  • telling your story through compelling communication strategies and materials.
  • being transparent and accountable to all of your stakeholders.
