Organizational Development

it's what we do

Internal Controls

Operational controls create efficiency, consistency of service, establishes accountability and, among other things, positions your organization to pursue funding. We assess your highest need and provide customizable:

  • operational manuals
  • employee & volunteer handbooks
  • policies and procedures
  • operational guides
  • self-auditing templates

We also re-configure your website and create an internal structure that enables you to make these critical documents available to staff, volunteers, board members, and auditors. These are private password protected pages that enable you to create order and access, which is important given these documents guide your organization. It truly impresses auditors and funders alike!

Funds Diversification

Developing a funding diversification strategy is key to any nonprofit’s ability to sustain itself over time. Nonprofits can fund their work through individual giving, corporate giving, sponsorship’s, grants, events, fee-for-service, virtual store, contracts, and more. They can also leverage their resources by seeking in-kind support and establishing a volunteer management program. We provide the following service:

  • identify a diversification model that fits your organization
  • develop an implementation plan
  • guide you through the process of establishing the model
  • redesign your website to maximize it’s capacity

No one model is the same for every organization, but there are some consistent pieces in terms of donor solicitation as well as leveraging resources and capitalizing on free social media marketing. Our goal is to develop focused diversification that fits your organizations capacity.

Grant Readiness & Grant Writing

Become more efficient and effective at seeking grant funding. Our grant readiness tool strengthens your organization’s ability to pursue funding and reduces the overall cost related to grant writing. During the process, we identify gaps and build a road map to address those gaps.  We provide the following:

  • self-assessment tool
  • guided assessment
  • outline of activities needed toward grant readiness
  • implementation guide with required inputs/outputs, task assignments, and built-in timelines

We also provide grant writing, grant administration, and grant review/editing services. The purpose of Grant Readiness is to help you develop the infrastructure needed so that you spend less time writing/revising and more time focused on the effective delivery of your service/program.

Website Capacity Building

A website should be multi-functional. It is not enough to tell your story and publish your outcomes. We utilize your organizations website to do many things – from housing internal controls, developing a site structure that aligns with grant readiness to helping you diversify funding and modernize outreach, marketing as well as donor solicitations.

We maximize a websites use and provide our clients with videos related to website management. Because this part of CL Consulting Group has grown, we’ve developed a sister site to organize all the materials more effectively. Go to
