Working with the team at Coneflower Consulting was a positive and inspiring experience. From day one they contributed organization, strategy, and joy to our project planning process. They were responsive and flexible as needs changed. Thanks to their expertise the Spencer Museum’s community forum event was hugely successful.

We were blessed to find Coneflower Consulting as a referral. They specialize in working with non-profit organizations and it shows in their compassion that they put in to their work. We hired them to work with us and our Board on our annual fundraising event at the American Royal. They provided fundraising training for our board, sponsor and ticket support, event planning, volunteer management, managed our social media. They were a true extension of our Board and did a great job helping us exceed our goals for the event and for raising awareness along the way.

Since we started working with Coneflower, our outreach efforts have risen to a new level! She is quick to sense which ideas will work and those that will not. When she shops a new idea with folks she has previously collaborated with, I've noticed that they love to hear from her and are excited to work with her again. She makes sure that everyone on the team shares in a job well done and knows that they are valued and appreciated.

The Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Kansas has been happy to work with Coneflower Consulting on its most recent National Endowment for the Humanities grant project, the Public Digital Humanities Institute. Coneflower is helping humanities faculty learn about the non-profit field and connect with non-profit partners in new and exciting ways that are mutually beneficial to both the non-profit and academic sectors.

For non-profits, the task of keeping afloat is tough given that most are founded by people not all that experienced at running business and would prefer to focus on doing good for their community. This is where the great people at Coneflower step in. With their help, I know the steps I need to take and feel empowered to take them. In addition to all that they do, they will also remain some of your best hype people. Thank you Coneflower crew!
