“My first introduction to Mollard Consulting was during a nonprofit conference where we were each presenting. During Mollard’s presentation, it was clear that they understand the unique challenges that nonprofit boards and leaders face. When a partner embarked on a major capital campaign which we were helping to facilitate, I knew we needed the Mollard team to help establish the infrastructure and process to lead to success.

It is essential to have an external subject matter expert to help navigate a major initiative, whether that be a campaign, program development, or updating a governance model. Mollard has the experience and strategies needed to get your nonprofit to the next level of impact.”

Mollard Consulting went above and beyond my expectations; they will definitely be our “go to” partner in the future.”

Their ability to quickly ascertain our immediate and intermediate needs meant that we hardly missed a beat as we pursued funding opportunities in the community.

Kerri has surrounded herself, at Mollard Consulting, with a team all-stars. I had the utmost confidence in their advice, as well as the grants they produced for us.
