Partnering to Unlock Potential
At Giving Tree, we believe organizations of all sizes can change the world. That’s why our not for profit consultants have spent the last decade helping small and mid-size organizations recognize and unlock their philanthropic potential.
Founded in 2008, Giving Tree has worked with more than 200 nonprofit institutions to drive thoughtful, sustainable growth. A woman-owned firm, our team of professionals leverages decades of experience in both consulting and in-house nonprofit roles to offer valuable strategic and tactical support.
While Giving Tree spent its early years primarily serving the Jewish community, our mission has expanded to include clients across faith denominations, human needs, arts and humanities, and other sectors. We call Chicago home, but our work includes partnerships with organizations around the world.
Many smaller nonprofits struggle to effect change with limited staff and financial resources, yet each organization’s challenges, strengths and vision are unique. By collaborating with clients every step of the way, our team builds thoughtful solutions to help nonprofits manage fundraising campaigns, meet professional development goals and plan for a stronger future.
What We Believe In
Philanthropy plays an essential role in solving complex local and global issues, and we’re passionate about doing our part to advance these missions.
We’re always available to counsel our clients, even after a project is complete, with an ultimate goal of giving nonprofits the tools to succeed on their own.
Co-founded by two women, Giving Tree cares deeply about helping our fellow females develop leadership skills within our own firm and in the nonprofit community.
How We Work
What good is a plan if you don’t have the time or knowledge to execute it? We roll up our sleeves when needed to create fundraising development materials, manage event details and provide other tactical support, helping our clients turn vision into action.
Leveraging well-rounded skills in fundraising, executive search, leadership coaching and strategic planning for nonprofits, we help you create an integrated approach that drives sustainable results.
Our professionals have worked in nonprofits of all sizes, so they know the challenges you face. We help lean teams determine where to focus first, and our nimble firm can pivot as fast as you do.
