  • You’re not sure what to offer beyond standard one-off sponsorships

Can you connect with corporate decision-makers? »

We've had so many amazing customers.

Here are some of the organizations we've been privileged to assist:

'Our sponsorship sales were flat'

"Our sponsorship sales were flat. We were spinning our wheels, always asking the same people for money. We weren’t growing revenue strategically, and it was frustrating..."

 

'We were overwhelmed, and our goals seemed unattainable'

"Our partnership and development programs and our board level priorities no longer matched our needs. We had no strategy. We took any amount from anyone while offering undefined benefits. Our board was under-utilized and under-engaged. We were overwhelmed, and our goals seemed unattainable..."

'We had no fundraising strategy or plan'

"We were not maximizing our potential. We needed unrestricted funds, and we wanted to diversify our revenue. But how? We had no strategy or plan..."

Why Work with Lewis Flax?

Lewis has walked in your shoes as a nonprofit executive. 

Your team puts in hours of hard work, yet revenue is flat or declining and it is difficult to budget. Your staff is stuck in a wheel spinning cycle of repeatedly asking the same sponsors for funds. And getting meager results. It’s frustrating. Overwhelming. Even frightening. 

However this doesn’t have to be your story. Lewis changed his approach and saw significant results when he focused on turning sponsors into partners. Lewis Flax started his own firm in 2008 and has helped associations and nonprofits increase revenue and develop long-term, mutually beneficial strategic partnerships. 

As an advisor, he is passionate about teaching others—you—to do the same. Lewis will walk alongside you, giving you the tools, knowledge, and confidence to develop, maintain and grow strong partnerships that will empower your organization for long term success and growth.

  • Declining revenue.

  • Mounting frustration.

You can do so much better!
