Most of what I do through BASINGER CONSULTING falls into one of the following three categories. That said, I’m always up for a challenge, and I love nothing more than pushing myself and the organizations with which I work in new directions. My Strengths Finder assessment has me pegged as a relator, learner, futuristic, strategic, and idea person, which gives you a clue to how I approach my work with clients.

It may seem unusual (maybe even bad business) for a consultant to present clients with a dual sales pitch. But I find it impossible to talk about board governance without touching on fundraising. And I struggle to discuss resource generation without mentioning the board. That’s why BASINGER CONSULTING provides counsel on two fronts – fundraising and board governance.

Whatever your budget, I can help you develop a plan for fundraising success, better board governance, or both.  If you don’t see what you want in the descriptions below, give me a call. I’m flexible.


I enjoy helping faith-based organizations design development programs that let them achieve their missions with economic vitality — and to do so in ways that encourage donors to grow in faith through giving.  Whether you’re looking for a development audit, a campaign feasibility study, ongoing counsel, or a fundraising coach, I tailor my services to your specific needs. My ministry is helping your ministry succeed and prosper. Read more


Beginning with my doctoral dissertation and continuing today in my consulting practice and with my service on the boards of a variety of nonprofits (faith-based and secular), I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about, writing on, and working with board members. So if you’re in the market for a board education workshop or seminar, or if you’d looking for help in strengthening your board’s performance in a specific area (fundraising, for example), drop me a line at the email address below. I’ll get back to you within 48 hours. Read more


In addition to my one-on-one work with faith-based nonprofits, I keep up a busy speaking schedule, addressing topics such as fundraising as ministry, good faith governance, and nonprofit leadership. I’ve keynoted at a number of major events and regularly lead workshops at fundraising conferences, association meetings, and denominational gatherings. My schedule gets a little crazy, so if you’d like to book me as a speaker, contact me at least six months in advance of the event. The easiest way to reach me is to drop me an email message.
