Our Mission

APC provides philanthropic consultants with community, education, and knowledge about best practices to strengthen their businesses and empower each client to meet its mission.

We’re committed to advancing philanthropy, together.

As a group of independent and small philanthropic consultancy firms from across the nation, we are committed to ensuring that nonprofit organizations of all sizes can engage experienced, qualified counsel by strengthening the abilities, growing the resources, and expanding the knowledge and networks of our members.

We impact the sector.

We provide our members with ongoing education, resources and tools that advance the professional practice of fundraising and elevate the organizations our members serve.

We improve our practices.

Fundraising experience and knowledge alone does not make a successful consultancy practice. From sales and marketing to contracts and client relations, we ensure our members have access to real-world experience and professional instruction in building and managing a thriving business.

We leverage our collective experience.

With APC, being independent doesn’t mean going it alone. Our members have access to a collective group of experienced consultants who are open, accessible and eager to share their experience, challenges and successes unique to philanthropic consulting.
