About Devine & Parker Consulting

Devine & Parker is a mentorship program training nonprofits to build results-driven fundraising operations.

Wondering how Devine Parker Consulting got its start? Like so many other great ideas in the last few years, our firm was born in January 2022, the result of some deep personal and professional reflection during the pandemic period. Both of us were working in nonprofit philanthropy roles that no longer served us or met our needs for growth, and in December 2021 we knew it was time for a change.

The two of us had been friends for several years, both attending American University in Washington, D.C. and meeting for the first time when Julia signed up for an internship that Catalina was supervising. Over the next few years we stayed in touch, with Julia even renting Catalina’s condo for a time when Catalina got a new job offer in Pennsylvania.

Fast forward to December 2021, when both of us quit our jobs within 2 months of each other. It was then that we had the idea to go out on our own. For a long time we had been frustrated by the lack of technology adoption within the organizations where we worked, and we knew from speaking with friends and colleagues that this was not a unique situation. In a rapidly changing world, nonprofits were not (and are still not) keeping up with the digital transformation necessary to compete for funds in the modern era. As a result, many of even the most established organizations are struggling to meet program budgets and achieve their critical mission work.

We founded our firm with the vision to connect with the nonprofit leaders out there who are seeking and adopting digital change, who are implementing tech solutions that equip their teams with the resources to compete for funds in the digital landscape, and who are looking for methods and strategies to take their development operations to the next level.

Nearly two years later, we have had the great fortune to work with many incredible people and organizations, and learn from them about the day-to-day challenges they are facing adapting their teams and technology to keep pace with modern fundraising practices.

Whenever you are ready to take the leap, we encourage you to reach out to learn more about our services.
