At Joan Wood & Company we are change agents. We fix problems, improve systems, train leadership and, when appropriate, help expand development shops. We have 30+ years of development experience to guide nonprofits as they navigate an ever-changing fundraising landscape. Ultimately, we help nonprofits raise more money - and we teach them the tools to fundraise more effectively.

Strategic thinkers. Skilled tacticians. Creative problem solvers.

We believe in collaboration. We join forces to teach people how to raise money. We help nonprofits create the structure and culture to support their fundraising efforts. We share our fundraising expertise to help nonprofit development teams met - and exceed - their goals.
