Kari Anderson, Incite! Consulting

I believe nonprofits can do anything they put their minds to. But they need the right tools, strategies, and support to make it happen! That’s where I come in. I build up nonprofits. From the inside out. By focusing on people, fundraising and systems, I work with clients to move their nonprofit organizations from survive to thrive.

About Kari Anderson, Incite! Consulting

Why Kari Anderson, Incite! Consulting?

I get nonprofits because I've been there. I have sat in your seat and walked in your shoes as a nonprofit staffer, fundraiser and executive director.

I get that there is no playbook for how nonprofits operate because of all the unique challenges. I get the hustle to raise money. I get how challenging it is to keep a board happily engaged. I get that you can feel like the weight of the world rests unrelentingly on your shoulders.

I have worked in the nonprofit sector for 22 years as either a fundraiser or an executive director. I get nonprofits because I’ve lived and breathed this world my entire career.

To a great extent, I’m good at what I do now because I messed up a lot along the way. I’ve got the bumps, bruises, and tales from the trenches to prove it. I treated volunteers like doormats and thought thank you notes were overrated. That’s embarrassing to say. But it’s true. Luckily, I learned from all this. And now I’m on a mission to make sure other nonprofit leaders don’t make the same mistakes I did!

A few things I believe in:

• Building relationships that will withstand the test of time. No “one and
  done donors.
• Being accountable. To myself, my clients, and the communities and
  people they serve.
• Saying what needs to be said and doing what needs to get done.
• Best practices and data-driving decision-making.
• Getting results.
• Taking calculated risks.
• Laughing whenever possible and (more or less) appropriate.

I’ve had the good fortune to work with more than 200 nonprofits and their leaders doing board education, retreat facilitation, executive director coaching, staff trainings, strategic, fund development, and succession planning.

By focusing on people, fundraising and systems, I work with clients to move their nonprofit organizations from survive to thrive. How? I help organizations build capacity. I support clients who are managing crisis. And, I support clients who are navigating change.

I'd love to connect and learn more about your organization and ways I can provide support. Visit or give me a call at (844) 946-2483.
