About Us


You may have been down the consultant road before. A consultant – usually someone from a large firm far away in a suit with a briefcase – swoops in, disrupts operations, delivers some templates and words of questionable wisdom and is gone with a flourish.

That is not what you get with the team at Harvest Development Group.

You will be pleasantly surprised by our experienced, knowledgeable and engaging advisors.  We are out to change the way you view consulting by focusing on lasting improvements that nurture your philanthropy and feed its roots for ongoing growth and success.  It is this focus that makes it impossible for us to use a cookie cutter approach with your organization.  You’ll find no canned plans in our toolkit.  We only provide personalized, data driven and benchmarked solutions to meet the specific needs of your organization.

We take the time to ask all the right questions – ensuring that we are working to fix the right problems – the ones that will have a measurable and significant impact on your outcomes.  We build solutions that achieve the results your organization will embrace.  We will show you what your harvest can bear and we promise that when the solutions are implemented, as directed, and the roots are preserved, your garden for philanthropy will bloom brilliantly.
