Minerva knows her stuff. Her consultation helped bring clarity around the immediate next action steps my organization needs to take to thrive. She is transparent, professional and a real pleasure to work with. She is immensely respected by her colleagues in the field and came highly recommended. Minerva's passion for her work was undeniable and led to collaborative solutions that will make a strong impact on enhancing our professional fundraising program. Minerva is rooted in an equity-driven approach that is integral for our collective work as non-profit leaders. I appreciated most her systematic, and organized approach to providing solutions that can catapult us towards our goals.

Who We Serve

Leaders and business owners, whether you are attempting to seize a funding opportunity or experiencing capacity tunnel vision, you have something you must elevate to get to where you need to go.

 

We are committed to helping Canadian organizations and businesses manage their complex and evolving funding and capacity-building needs.

 

Service, not selling, is at the heart of everything we do, every day.

 

We help clients across a range of needs and goals that include:

 

Not-For-Profits & Charitable Organizations

If you are a not-for-profit or charitable organization, you want to ensure that your resource mobilization strategy includes grants from foundations, corporate entities, and government. Skills such as prospect research, proposal development, managing, and reporting on grant funding are what is needed and at Kuinua this is expertise you can expect.

You may be blessed to have an experienced grant writer or resource professional on staff, especially if your organization has vigorous capacity and long-standing grant-funded programs. But for many not-for-profits and charities, this is not so, and it might make sense to hire a grant professional or consultant, at least for some time. Here is where our expertise and resources are invaluable.

 

We can help you build a plan to address both your funding and capacity needs that will enable you to fulfill your mission.

Business Owners & Entrepreneurs

We work with business owners and entrepreneurs who have spent years building their businesses and others who are trying to figure out the best way forward. Whether you are just getting started, or have an established business, we can help you elevate your product or service by increasing your capacities and access to funding.


We can design for you: a customized business plan to help you decide what assets you need, how many, for how long, and a diversified funding plan that would allow you to generate income sustainably.


As fellow business owners, we understand your needs and are here to help.
