Your nonprofit delivers solutions to our most complex challenges.

You improve lives.

You offer hope and optimism in a world of gloomy headlines.

Despite your value, achieving results isn’t easy. To create this impact, you align your board, staff, donors, and others to advance toward your vision—and you do it all without spending too much on overhead.

That’s where Karen Eber Davis Consulting steps in. Since 1994, Karen’s been guiding nonprofit leaders like you to sharpen their swords, grow more revenue, supporters, and mission results plus increase nonprofit CEO’s job satisfaction.

Boards of Directors

Govern. Engage. Lead.

Karen works with nonprofits with board challenges from micromanagement to minimal engagement and more—so boards reach their potential, nonprofits get stronger, and CEOs thrive.

Karen did a beautiful job on the board retreat. She gained the trust of the board. Karen listens well, communicates well, and kept us in the loop. She is very organized. 

Martine Meredith Collier, Executive Director
Arts Council of Hillsborough County

Before the meeting, board members were emailing, calling, and texting me—even on the weekends. After the event, that stopped. The board now knows their job. They understand it includes fiduciary responsibilities. It’s not only about showing up at meetings or micromanaging the staff.

Strategies and Plans

Listen. Synthesize. Innovate.

Karen creates strategies and plans based on high aspirations, your collective wisdom, solving intractable challenges and using windows of opportunities. Why? Strategies (and plans) gives you and those around you the confidence to act. You understand where you’re going and how you will get there.

The reaction to the Comprehensive Arts Strategy was, ‘Wow. It’s not only well-done, but it’s also really comprehensive.’ The Comprehensive Arts Strategy includes everything possible, prioritized. We listened to all of the good ideas in the community, organized them, added structure and leadership, and how to pay for it.

CEO Challenges

Mentor. Coach. Guide.

You already know leading a nonprofit is tricky–including finding time to focus on the whole rather than what’s on fire. Karen offers customized coaching and advice to guide nonprofit leaders and their staff to get ahead of the game, create fail-proof processes, and maps to new destinations.

I recommend Karen to all those who are working on fundraising. Karen is a wonderful asset. She is capable of taking complex ideas and making them simple enough that all people can participate in fundraising. We believe that all agency members are fundraisers. Karen makes that true.

Major Ethan Frizzell
The Salvation Army

Karen has an uncanny ability to convene nonprofit stakeholders–board members, donors, staff leadership, clients–and help them discover the common thread that galvanizes a fresh commitment to a mission they can all share. With a deep understanding and respect for each person’s point of view, she brings clarity to sticky situations and breaks through barriers that seem to be insurmountable.
