What We Do

Blue Strike provides advice and assistance to advocacy organizations seeking to elevate their performance in fundraising, marketing, and communications. Using time-tested methods and cost-effective solutions, our goal is to help you implement sustainable programs that reach people in meaningful ways.

Organizations engaged in public policy, civic engagement, and public interest law face unique fundraising challenges. Shifting political opinion and intermittent media attention are just a few of the factors that can derail your development plans. On top of that, your organization is working on complex issues for which progress can be long and arduous.

Blue Strike offers free and low-cost resources to help you handle a range of common tasks found in a development office. In addition to the materials intended for a general audience, our services include customized staff and board training, executive mentoring, strategic planning, and transition services. We also curate free resources pinpointing the most relevant reports and funding opportunities for you.
