Cabutra provides four distinct services. Each one is designed to help advance social change programs by leveraging our 25+ years of experience in all aspects of organizational management (as senior managers, capacity building consultants and project contractors).
You're a smaller social change organization, and you want help with fundraising. Or maybe your organization is looking to better communicate its story so you can attract more people to your cause. What about day-to-day operations: your team knows the issues, but could use some guidance on budgets, management systems, human resources and the like. Then there is the age old question of how to get your Board to be more engaged. We can help, we want to help, and we are ready to put our more than two decades of experience to good use on your behalf.
We can also apply our in-depth expertise toward a specific project you need help with: a grant proposal or report, designing or refining a program, a communications/public relations plan, an evaluation of your field work, or the like. We have done similar project contract work for nonprofits, non-government organizations and social enterprises of various sizes and foci.
If your project is not an established 501(c)(3) organization in the United States, or is incorporated in another country, and you would like to secure tax-deductible contributions in the states, Cabutra can serve as your fiscal sponsor. Better yet, we can help you think through your fundraising activities while we offer you the means to receive tax-deductible donations.
We also provide emerging social change leaders with feedback and guidance on their career path and resumes. Given that Cabutra's founder has worked in more than a dozen sectors of the nonprofit field (see "Who We Are" for details), he has an understanding of what academic and experiential courses will likely serve you best. Equally important, he has reviewed thousands of resumes and interviewed hundreds of applicants for 100+ job openings during his 25 years as a senior manager. And he gained some of his most pertinent insights the hard way, through his own career transitions.
