Finding focus on key goals and strategies helps chart a course for organizational growth.

At Philip Conkling & Associates, we have over 50 years of collective experience of assisting communities, organizations, businesses and individuals with the development of organizational strategies that have resulted in dramatic organizational growth based on clear goals, measurable objectives and achievable work plans. But most important of all is that everyone understands how the components of an organization’s plan loop back to the original vision of the group and individuals involved.


Identifying key funding opportunities and partners is the foundation for crafting a successful fundraising strategy. 

Philip Conkling & Associates have years of experience in crafting successful fund raising strategies for both non-profits and for-profit businesses. Through successful messaging and networking, the principals have directly raised many tens of millions of dollars in Maine, New England and at the national level, both through private individuals and foundations and government sources to help established organizations grow or leverage new start-ups.


Telling your organization’s story helps create a connection with your audience and delivers your message with a greater impact.

The channels of communication continue to expand. Each is an opportunity to present a business or organization’s image and message to the outside world. The “look and feel” of an organization can strengthen its message through subtle design choices. The principals of Philip Conkling & Associates have an experienced eye and ear for delivering clear messaging in both print and digital media.


Research and information gathering helps an organization to make informed decisions for a sustainable future. 

Sustainability is the balance between growth and depletion, and is one of the key concepts of ecology that can be applied to organizational development. This concept, whether applied literally or metaphorically is based on the recognition that all parts of a system are connected.
