Launched in 2002 as McKean Nichols, Inc., Red Barn (RBA) is a boutique consulting firm specializing in information management for nonprofit organizations particularly related to the fundraising operations. We strive to fit into your operation as your evolving needs require. This can take the form of a short-term project-based engagement or a long-term, collaborative partnership wherein RBA serves as a natural extension of the team.
We work with you to address your immediate and foreseeable needs. We strive not only to engage the best data management practices, but to do so in a manner which is the best fit for you given your resources and budgetary restrictions. We understand teams have strengths and challenges, and we work with you to capitalize on those areas which will result in the best brand of success they can garner – without losing sight of precious opportunities which may yet to be realized.
Our clients find an investment in the improvement of their operations is just that. It is an investment. It pays dividends. More money can be raised, because they are able to more accurately target and segment their constituents. Less money is very often spent, because they do not exhaust scarce resources preparing data outside the database only to unknowing push bad contact information. These expenses – print, postage, data preparation – are perpetual; they continue without notice. The cost of bad analytics can be immeasurable as Stakeholders question the validity and integrity of the fundraising and development services operations.
Our goal is to partner with you to the point where you can call us as needed during the vast improvement of their information management operations … only to all but forget about us once your are up and running. We teach fundraisers to fish; only it is data they are catching. Our intensive exposure to your operation during vast operational improvements then allows us the knowledge to step in as needed, when your circumstances change or new opportunities – often in form of challenges – arise.
Red Barn Advisors is proud to be a ready resource for you during both times of great success and considerable difficulty. Contact us today to learn how we can help you engage your data in pursuit of your mission.
