Organization description:
Nonprofit leaders often find that day-to-day administration and governance take away valuable time from focusing on the mission, making it difficult to get up to speed on all the things you need to do to thrive: fundraising, grantwriting, leadership and communications and marketing. Multiplier provides an alternative to doing everything yourself. Our core team has decades of experience in the nonprofit sector, and works alongside you to add depth and breadth to your team. Every project operating under our umbrella receives personal and responsive service tailored to meet its unique needs.
