Melarbit brings a unique, entrepreneurial approach and proven track record to all engagements. 

Specifically, we:

  • Collaborate with clients to create and expand opportunity.
  • Prepare & Position enterprises for fundraising success and sector leadership.
  • Convene/Engage strategic partners and attract new stakeholders/supporters.
  • Launch fundraising and growth initiatives that generate significant financial resources and advance the mission.
  • Blog to share best practices and build community.

One of the things I like about fundraising is that it is action-oriented. No one hires a fundraiser to just conduct an assessment or write a report without doing something with it. In this way, fundraising can be and indeed often is where new ideas take shape and are launched.
