Change is hard… if you let it be. We know it is inevitable that change will come at some point in time – and you have two options: resist or assist. We don’t have to tell you which one works out better.
With thoughtful planning, you can transform change into amazing opportunity to launch your group forward. We can help you lean in to the uncertainty and find your way through “less worn for the wear.” Through our Change Management Plan process, we will help you:
- Identify people and program areas that will be affected
- Design an internal and external response plan
- Provide specialized support for clients, staff and board members
- Merge from “have to” to “get to”

Engage Your Board in Fundraising
Trying to get your board to fundraise for your nonprofit organization?
If we had $1 for every nonprofit board member and executive director who wants to get the rest of the board more involved in fundraising, our entire JVA team would be working from a villa in Tuscany—or maybe a nice house in Steamboat Springs.
The problem with the way most people approach board fundraising is that they demand that all board members do the same thing, e.g., sell two tables to an event. Or they use outdated ideas like “Give or Get” policies.
Based on the latest research in fundraising and in engagement, we have created a product that engages all of your board members in fundraising.
Janine and her team led our board members and some senior staff through a terrific two-hour retreat focused on successful board fundraising. Our board members have traditionally not had to engage in fundraising for the organization so no systems were really in place to enable them to play this important role. Janine had just the right level of energy, enthusiasm and expertise to guide us through a process that helped us all develop our own language to connect new people to our organization. It culminated with a session in which everyone made personal commitments to take concrete steps that play to individual strengths and that will get us on the road to greater funding diversity. A huge thank you to Janine and her team for one of the most useful trainings I’ve participated in!
