Services in Action supports Nonprofit Professionals in three ways, by providing resources for professional development, information and research so you can save time and still have all the answers, and by helping you define ideas and mentoring you through projects. For free.

Resources

Professional development is an important part of all livelihoods, and not always easy to navigate. Especially when there isn’t a line item in the budget. Here we provide information on how to access educational tools and supportive resources to help you grow as a nonprofit professional.

Here you’ll find book and podcast recommendations, software comparison charts, and other free resources.

Information and Research

You need to learn about something you don’t know anything about, understand, or just learned? Pass that over to us. Nonprofit professionals need to be experts in a range of topics as well as make decisions quickly and efficiently.

We can take on this task -find the best CRM solution, strategic planning program, fundraising software, and industry experts for you.

Project Mentoring

Turning an idea into a list of action items can be overwhelming. We can help you talk through your ideas and goals into actionable steps.

Contact us to talk or walk it out. This is a free service we offer, we don’t sell anything

Website Evaluation

Is your website working for you?

One of the more surprising activities Services in Action has taken on is website development.

It’s surprising because it was never an area we actively pursued. However, in helping people organize a program, realize an idea, or communicate a mission, a website is an essential component. So evaluating and (re)designing websites became a natural part of our work.

Many times, our website work hasn’t even been for a nonprofit, but for someone on a tight budget. If this has you thinking about your own website, or lack thereof, here are six questions to ask your website:
