Increasingly, nonprofit institutions are realizing the importance of strengthening -- and investing in -- their funding base. Resources such as consulting services are often called upon to help achieve that goal, increasing the potential of a successful effort. At Whaley LeVay, that means not only viewing your organization as unique, but helping you design programs that are tailored to your organization.
