Photo L FiggsI’m LaCharla Figgs, founder of T.L. Figgs Nonprofit Consulting. Serving nonprofits is not just my job. It’s a passion.

For the past two decades, I’ve worked in and with nonprofits, helping community-based and faith-based agencies with start-up, board development, strategic planning, and other organizational development services.

During my 14 years working for a national nonprofit, I had the chance to train community-based nonprofits across the U.S., to consult with boards, support resident-led change efforts, manage a city-focused grant program, write educational manuals, and do other meaningful work with and for nonprofits.

Quality is very important to me, and I strive to deliver excellence, whether I’m working with a 6-figure client or an everyday person who wants to launch a small nonprofit program. And all my services and products have one purpose: to help community-based and faith-based nonprofits build effective and lasting programs that improve the lives of people in need.

I offer the services below to prospective, new and existing nonprofits. But I also enjoy one-of-a-kind assignments. So, if you don’t see the kind of help you need on the list below, request a consultation HERE.

  • Nonprofit start-up
  • Board development
  • Strategic planning facilitation
  • Program design
  • Grant writing
  • Process & meeting facilitation
