Blue Blaze Consulting offers non-profit organizations and public agencies the expertise and added capacity to explore new ventures, seek additional revenue sources, and more effectively serve their clients.  Blue Blaze assists organizations to pursue opportunities – such as federal grant funding – without having to hire additional staff or strain existing resources.  Blue Blaze also assists organizations in forging new paths through the development of business plans and the facilitation of strategic planning.
