Charitable Giving Consulting
Taking his efficiency & analytics skills in a completely new direction, Andrew will begin to offer philanthropy consulting starting in 2024. This consulting is geared toward individuals, family foundations, businesses & corporations who are in need of a trustworthy, experienced consultant to locate & identify worthy recipients of charitable giving based on specifications/goals provided.
Having worked with over 100 nonprofit organizations and family foundations throughout the United States over the past 20 years, and having observed firsthand the frequent donor/recipient challenges, Andrew’s desire is to help donors connect to qualified recipients and to ensure over time that the charitable funds are then used efficiently and effectively. Ongoing accountability reporting with onsite visits can be developed for recipients of repeat or significant donations.
Business Efficiency Consulting
Andrew’s efficiency consulting addresses the entire scope of a business: its processes, customer service, management, employees, marketing, public relations, and communication.
When a company hires me as a business improvement consultant, my goal is to immerse myself into the heart of that company and to examine every aspect I have access to, whether it is personnel, management, customer interaction, raw products, utilities, outside contractors, sales & marketing, equipment, office staff & procedures, communication, company history, or internal politics.
While some companies hire me solely for cost cutting strategies, a trim budget does not equal increased profits nor greater productivity. Cost cutting should be viewed from the perspective of increasing value. Hastily making budget cuts to save money may merely result in decreased profits or a lower value attributed to a company, its workforce, its management, and its products & services.
My goal with each client is steady improvement. Increased efficiency is useless unless accompanied by a corresponding increase in effectiveness. – Andrew Jensen
