Vision. Direction. Experience.

The Development Consulting Group (TDCG) is a full-service consultancy for nonprofits. Formerly The Jenks Group, we have more than 22 years’ experience in the nonprofit sector. We are committed to helping our clients build their organization’s capacity and achieve their goals. We recognize that each client is unique and tailor our services accordingly. We believe that we only succeed when our clients do. 

Working with you to reach your goals

TDCG consultants are experts in all facets of nonprofit organizational development and our services focus on Fundraising, Strategic Planning, Executive Search and Philanthropic Advisory. 

We work with both start-up organizations and established institutions.  We help to envision long-term futures and to meet urgent fundraising deadlines. We step in to guide organizations through transitions and recruit executive staff members who lead. 

If your organization is dealing with systemic problems or you have an urgent challenge to face, we welcome working with you to tackle and resolve immediate issues and to plan and help your organization flourish. 

Creative solutions tailored to your needs

TDCG partners and consultants each average almost 25 years of working in and with nonprofits. We truly can say that we’ve “been there, done that”! We know what it's like to sit on all sides of the philanthropy table.

Our consultants have been Executive Directors, successful Development Directors, and active Board members. They have funded nonprofits as well as secured funding. Our consultants put their experience to work for you. We do not use junior staff as counsel for our clients. 

Our approach and the solutions we develop with clients are creative.  We have assisted many clients to develop new and additional funding sources as well as helping them to reimagine their strategy.

We do not use pre-set formulas or templates. Each engagement has its unique set of circumstances that is individually assessed and addressed.  Our consulting is tailored to your needs and your organization.
