Design Group International spends a lot of time with organizations that want to raise financial support. To distinguish between firms like ours a key question is often asked by potential clients: How do we know you are effective? Because of our standing in the industry we are also asked the same question as educators: How can we know that a potential consulting firm is effective?

Our organizational development firm, Design Group International, lives at the intersection where businesses, non-profits and religious organizations find common ground. The beautiful thing about an intersection is one can then see what is held in common, as well as point of origin and destination–however different they may be.
One area of difference is the raising of funds.
