We don’t just hand over the trout, we teach how you how to fish.
Blue Orange consulting will complement existing community-based initiatives, through the addition of implementation capacity. We shepherd, quarterback and mentor to show people where to find resources and along the way, prop them up so that they can do future projects, on their own. We have an emphasis on the greater Grand Traverse region of northwest lower Michigan, but we love exploring and are able to work anywhere.
We work with a network of developers, lenders, philanthropists, lobbyists, lawyers and grass roots rock stars who are able to plug in to any endeavor as needed. Our target clients are Municipalities, Developers, Nonprofits, Networks, Community Groups/Volunteers, Businesses, and CDFIs or other non-traditional financing organizations, to name a few.
We are not masters of all – but we are curious people. We always ask for help. We figure stuff out. Here’s what we can do today:
Our Services Include
Fundraising, grant writing, campaign consulting, non-traditional financing, securing and leveraging public dollars.
Facilitation and Community Convening
Strategic networking and planning, and regional project integration.
Project Management and Community Development
Research, feasibility studies, team design and coordination and launching new partnerships and initiatives.
