Our mission is simple. Help you change the world, faster.
PhoenixFire offers phenomenal versatility and customization to consulting. We make working with skilled consultants easy and tremendously valuable to organizations anywhere in the world.
Whether you're looking to increase revenue, manage expenses, create inspiring content, plan your long-term strategy, or need extended operational support, we're with you every step of the way.
Our focus is on your sustainable future. PhoenixFire works hard to ensure that you're set up for success not only for tomorrow, but for what happens beyond.
Best of all, no client has ever paid more for our services than we have delivered measurable value in revenue or savings. $ for $. None.
You simply don't have time to become an expert in everything, all of the time. That's ok. We do it for you.
We're experienced in strategic planning, marketing, data analysis, financial management, fundraising, operational efficiencies, regulatory and compliance issues, donor and grant prospecting, social media, and industry best practices.
And if we don't know how to do it, we know who does.
PhoenixFire will help you build your strategic plan and assist you in executing it. From organizational structure, budgeting, or development plans, strategic planning is critical for the long term success of any organization.
Just as importantly, how do you do it without burning out?
We'll also help you measure your success. There is a real difference between a good plan and a well executed strategy - and the proof will always be measurable.
It all starts with inspiring content. You have a vision that is worth working for, volunteering with, and donating to. Content is how you convey that vision. We'll help you identify the key messages that will most resonate with people, and the voice to deliver it.
Everything from social media, newsletters, or training material will serve to inspire people to take action. Inspiring content is how you'll attract great people to your organization. It's also how you'll retain them.
Successful organizations need great people, solid processes, and funding to ignite their potential. Phoenix Fire will help you differentiate and maximize your revenue streams so that you're less dependent on any one source. This can include grants, major giving, social campaigns, B2C or B2B sales, or any number of funding channels.
Having more money isn't the end goal, but it absolutely will make your work easier.
You've got the vision. You've got the strategy, You've got the inspiring messaging. You've got the money you need. There's only one problem left... resources are not infinite.
You're competing for the same staff, volunteers, marketing, funding, time and energy as everyone else.
To succeed you must be different. PhoenixFire can help drive innovation so you remain competitive.
We don't help you manage change in the future. We'll help you create it.
