Standing Beside Alaska's Non-Profits

Shared Services

Few nonprofit organizations in Alaska have the resources to employ enough people to meet all their management needs. The Foraker Group’s agency services can fill those gaps. We offer expert consultants at low cost to help in specialized areas. Our approach is to mentor your staff or key volunteers to gain the skills necessary to meet your goals. Each project should have a “champion,” someone within your organization who is willing to work with our consultants. Our goal is to help you build your organization’s infrastructure by building the capacity of your staff and volunteers. Our consultants have years of experience and a commitment to help your organization succeed.

The Foraker Group provides agency services in the following categories. Services can be purchased either by the hour, half day or full day.  A few of these services are available through a yearly package for our Partner Organizations. Click on the desired service for more information.
