Strategic Planning Consulting
"Being a grassroots organization, Sisters In Christ’s resources were limited, but our connection to Optimize Passion enabled our organization to be introduced to a strategic process that allowed us to grow and move forward confidently and expeditiously. It was extremely important to our agency to build capacity and move forward.
This relationship established with Optimize Passion gave us access to key resources that have made a significant impact in our mission and strategically planning for the next three years. I know and believe meeting Jennifer was part of the destiny plan for Sisters In Christ. Her vision to build capacity in the nonprofit world of people of color is true and honest.
I humbly admit I did not know as a nonprofit founder exactly where this journey was going to take the assignment that has been placed on my life, but I do know for a fact it was a God-given strategy that brought Jennifer and Optimize Passion into the plan that God had for Sisters In Christ. It was worth the investment and definitely has challenged our thinking regarding nonprofit leadership, how to maximize funding resources and establish greater business relationships to enhance the growth of our position in the community we serve.
Thank you, Jennifer, and Optimize Passion for your real commitment to the mission of thriving!

Nonprofit Startup Consulting
"Jennifer Alexander's expertise was vital during the first stages of developing our nonprofit. She walked us through the 501c3 paperwork, advised us on what insurance we would need, and even connected us with our insurance broker. Without her, we would be months behind schedule. We reached out to Jennifer for startup guidance in May 2020, incorporated our nonprofit in July, and received federal 501c3 status in November."
-Emily Boullear, Co-Founder, Free Thought
"My Angel Lives has been an active organization for 6 years but recently gained 501c3 status nearly a year ago. Your videos have been extremely helpful in assisting me in moving forward. Optimize Passion is the only place I've found start-up content that was easy to digest and implement. I look forward to sharing my progress.”

Signature Fundraising Event Development
"Jennifer Alexander and her team helped us to develop and implement our first virtual fundraising signature event which was an outstanding success! Jennifer was detailed in her approach to making sure every aspect of our event was a success. Our weekly meetings were very productive and helpful in moving things forward. Jennifer was easy to work with and enthusiastic about our success. Her ability to think strategically through the entire process was marvelous. She was able to successfully help us virtualized this event and was extremely instrumental in introducing several new components to the event, such as successfully setting up Text giving and our first ever Champions of Hope Nomination and award process.
I enthusiastically recommend Optimize Passion and Jennifer for any small to medium-sized nonprofit looking for strategic and tactical steps to successfully grow your organization."
