Pro Bono Fundraising Consulting Program


As a woman-owned and led consulting firm serving the nonprofit sector, Evolve Giving Group is committed to addressing the inequities that women face. We recognize that while misogyny and gender bias affect all women, women who also identify as members of other historically marginalized communities face additional barriers stemming from systemic racism, homophobia, ableism, ageism and transphobia.

In keeping with its core value of justice, Evolve is launching its first pro bono program to support a women-led, women-serving organization with an annual budget of $5 million or less whose work promotes the health, safety, and wellbeing of women from marginalized communities. We encourage all organizations whose work primarily supports women who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, disabled, or those from other marginalized groups to apply. 

Women-led, women-serving organizations that advocate for any of the following are encouraged to apply:

  • Reproductive justice
  • Ending sexual and/or domestic violence
  • Survivors of gender-based violence
  • Women’s healthcare
  • Pregnancy and parenting advocacy
  • Women’s rights in the workplace and education 
  • Family leave policies (i.e. parental and caregiver leave) 
  • Housing justice and homelessness prevention 
  • Women with disabilities or who live in poverty

Applicant organizations must: 

  • Be led by a woman and have women in the majority of leadership positions
  • Serve women who are disabled, BIPOC, or LGBTQ+ or women from another marginalized group 
  • Be a US-based nonprofit 
  • Have an annual budget of $5 million or less
  • Have a designated staff member or volunteer leader to serve as a point of contact for the consulting team
  • Be available for a virtual video conference interview if selected as a finalist 

In alignment with Evolve’s commitment to racial justice, we are prioritizing organizations led by a BIPOC leader, with a diverse board and leadership.  

Pro Bono Services Offered

One organization will be selected to receive 120 hours of pro bono support. This work may include one of the following services: 

This collaborative project will be tailored to each nonprofit’s specific needs. One additional organization will receive 13 hours of pro bono coaching with one of Evolve’s consultants, which will be spread over a three month period. This support is customized based on the organization’s unique needs and experience. Coaching projects might counsel on how an organization can update an annual campaign plan, build cultivation strategies for top donors, revise board orientation materials, or develop a plan to manage time more effectively.
