Why Jean Block Consulting?

I incorporated Jean Block Consulting Inc. in 1995 to share more than 45 years of experience in the nonprofit sector with organizations throughout the U.S. I am also founding principal of Social Enterprise Ventures LLC, a national training and consulting company devoted to teaching nonprofits how to diversify their revenue through earned income.

Experience

I organized my first fundraiser when I was 13 and was immediately hooked on how volunteers can work together to invest in a brighter future. My career in the nonprofit sector has given me firsthand experience in nonprofit management and administration, strategic planning, volunteer recruitment and retention, marketing, public relations, board management, and fundraising. I have served in staff and volunteer leadership roles in local, regional and national nonprofits.

Testimonials

Governance

Now more than ever, scrutiny from donors, funders, federal and regulatory agencies requires that your organization is current and in compliance. I can help you define appropriate board roles and fiduciary responsibilities.

Board Development

Learn how to effectively Recruit, Retain, Manage and Recognize the best board volunteers to help your organization fulfill its mission.

Social Enterprise

Discover ways to build capacity and diversify your revenue through earned income. As funding from traditional sources is stressed, the private sector can make it up.

Fundraising

Enhance your fundraising skills, maximize your income, educate your board about its role in fundraising, and other techniques to keep your organization healthy and solidly in the black. Learn Jean's 10 Rules for Fundraising Success.

Contact Jean today to discuss training or consulting in any of these critical nonprofit success areas.
