Advancing Your Mission

Nonprofit leaders are constantly challenged to do more with less. You're our problem solvers. But where do you turn when you need help?  The Ostara Group is the problem solver for nonprofit problem solvers. We help you maximize your impact and unlock your full potential.

Helping Nonprofits Thrive

Small to midsize nonprofits play a vital role in supporting social change and solving some of society’s most pressing issues. But that work can be incredibly tough when you’re also struggling with organizational challenges.  The Ostara Group was founded specifically to help nonprofits address their day-to-day complexities. We’re based in Seattle, Washington but collaborate with organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Experienced Nonprofit Consultants

Our multitalented team includes coaches, leaders and fundraisers with decades of experience in the nonprofit world. We can help you address and navigate the nonprofit sector’s most complex problems.

Working Together to Develop a Sustainable Financial Future

There’s more to a thriving nonprofit than a strategic plan. The way each part of your organization approaches fundraising will determine your success. We collaborate with you to create the culture and development capacity you need to achieve lasting impact.

Our Process


We kick off your project by asking the right questions and listening to your needs. After taking the time to understand your vision, mission, and organizational culture, we propose a custom approach to helping you meet your goals for the future.


We consider all elements that influence your philanthropic culture—from board engagement and major gifts to database functionality—to determine how to maximize your potential.


Next, we dive into the creative process. Drawing from what we learned in our assessment and analysis, we put all of our ideas on the table to come up with an innovative strategy and a tactical plan to help you
implement it.


At The Ostara Group, we do more than just give advice. We work alongside you, on the ground, to put strategy into action and develop a fundraising program and culture that will better serve your mission.


After further analysis, we provide you with strategic and tactical recommendations to propel your organization into its next phase of growth.
