Our foundation has become a real advocate of Nancy Osgood’s revenue assessment work. When we met Nancy, our foundation had been pushing earned income strategies to the nonprofits we were funding. Nancy really opened our eyes to a more holistic and mission-friendly way to help our grantees pursue the revenue opportunities (earned or contributed) best suited to their mission, skills and long-term sustainability. We provide scholarships to her workshops on a regular basis!

Nancy’s Identifying and Evaluating New Revenue Streams workshop series was one of our highest rated programs. She delivers content that nonprofit executives can really use to build long-term revenue strategies for their organizations.

The revenue opportunity evaluation process The Osgood Group took us through helped us better articulate our value in the market for data services. We are more confident negotiators because we now understand what we bring to alliances, collaborations and community partnerships.

We turned to The Osgood Group for business planning support to help secure the long-term success of our school.

Nancy has the brilliance and creativity to start at breakfast with a pile of spaghetti mixed with glow-in the dark stars and transform it into a gourmet meal of clear plans and actions that drive results – all by lunchtime.


Invite her into your kitchen and watch her work!

Following Nancy’s marketing course, I participated in a competition for developing a strategic plan for how social media can be used to position and brand a business school. Thanks to her teachings, my team won. 


I encourage students to attend her courses.
