Mission: Big Tree International (BTI) builds a better world by offering nonprofit consulting services to strengthen the capacity of local nonprofits addressing society’s most important challenges.

Results: The United States has over 1.5 Million tax-exempt charitable organizations, yet only 2.4% of them account for 90% of total reported revenue of $373.25 Billion. In other words, most nonprofits are competing for funding scraps even though there is more than enough financial food to go around. The problem we have seen is that most nonprofits do not have the experience, expertise and relationships to access those resources. BTI’s team of experts knows how to help nonprofits with their capacity development challenges.
Target demographics: Capacity development for small nonprofits
Geographic areas served: Serving local nonprofits
Programs: Growth Assistance Program (GAP) – A systematic and proven 12-month program where we provide our full suite of services to help qualified local nonprofits bridge the gap between where they are in their growth journey and where they want to be. Functioning as their behind the scenes advisor, we provide an infusion of tools, awards, resources, capital, strategic relationships, confidence and credibility to the small nonprofit who did not previously have the capacity to grow. Participants are selected who 1) we believe in their cause, (2) are poised for growth and (3) have what it takes to have a long-term “ripple effect” for large scale social and economic development of their community. We primarily serve organizations working on education, environment, arts, and family services.
General Consulting Services – Customized, needs-based consulting in fundraising, strategic planning, grant research and writing, board development, compliance, marketing communications, risk management and income strategies that help non-profits organization become more effective and sustainable.
We have been repeatedly impressed with the integrity and energy of Big Tree International founders; their vision in caring for others, going the second (and third) mile to bring help and relief to those most in need, and in sustaining a vision for what that care and provision needs to look like next year and in five or ten years in order to be effective and progressive. Five stars well deserved!
The Spear Family Foundation
We love BTI! We enjoy supporting this organization every year, and are glad that we get to help change the lives of children and families around the world who are in need! The work BTI does and the difference they are making in real peoples' lives is truly phenomenal. With a small office and many volunteer staff, their overhead expenses are low even though they are helping so many people.
My husband and I like that they always make their financial details available so we can see exactly what they are doing. They are committed to transparency, have an experienced board of directors, and send us clear communications/donation receipts. (Unlike some other non-profits that we have experienced.) This is an nonprofit worth supporting!
