One-on-One Consultations to Improve Board Effectiveness

Many foundations have told us that they need help in the following areas:

  • Reinvigorating a board
  • Managing board and staff expectations
  • Recruitment, orientation, and engagement of board members
  • Board governance (board size, terms, meetings, conflict of interest, etc.)
  • Board member roles and responsibilities

We have a proven solution for you.  We can arrange a one-on-one consultation with an experienced and informed professional who will assess the concerns you are having with your board and help you develop an action plan.

Please contact CTCEF  if you would like to set up a time to work with one of our consultants or if you would like more information.

One-on-One Grant-Writing Consultations

Does your education foundation apply to local community foundations, businesses, and corporations for grants to help underwrite the projects you support? Completing and submitting grant applications can be a successful way to raise funds, but it can also be daunting. The process sometimes seems like a lot of time to spend on something that rarely bears fruit. CTCEF can help!

We will pair you with one of three CTCEF board members, who have years of experience in writing grant applications, to work directly on a proposal of your choosing. When you complete your assignment, one of our experts will meet with you for a two-hour visit to work directly with you on the proposal. You will be able to apply the skills you learn on this proposal to future grants.

Please contact CTCEF if you would like to set up a time to work with one of our consultants or if you would like more information.
