About Raise the Bar Consulting

Your organization’s growth and transformation takes vision, purpose, strategy – and a commitment to success. Enter Raise the Bar Consulting to support your team in reaching new heights.

Raise the Bar Consulting is a team of experienced consultants with a proven record of success in organizational growth and transformation. We partner with nonprofits, schools, and small businesses to scale for growth and success.

In our 15 years, Raise the Bar Consulting has partnered with more than 245 clients through in-depth engagements, supported a few thousand participants in workshops and trainings, and assisted close to three dozen organizations with transitional leadership, interim executive, and strategic realignment support.

Through our fundraising and grant writing solutions, we have raised more than USD $500 Million directly, and supported clients to raise an additional USD $475 Million for capital campaigns alone. Raise the Bar team members have raised more than a combined USD $1.2 Billion in their careers.

What makes us so good at what we do?


Raise the Bar Consulting customizes our solutions to meet your unique needs. We know we are a little different than the average fundraising consulting group, and we like it that way. 

In 2009, Jennifer Tersigni founded Raise the Bar Consulting, having watched organization after organization retain consultants whose solutions didn’t quite match the needs of the organizations they served. She wanted to create something more: a firm that partnered with clients to deliver better, more relevant consulting services – the kind that clients would feel was a terrific value during the engagement and in hindsight. We integrate the best of fundraising, organizational development, leadership, and revenue growth strategies to harness success in the ways that are right for you. 

This year, Raise the Bar celebrates fifteen years of success, putting clients and their unique needs at the forefront of our services. We are headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, with a team of twelve consultants positioned nationwide, in and around New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, Arizona, Wyoming, Utah, and Washington states. Our team members offer services in English, Spanish, French and German.
