About SERVE University

SERVE-U is a comprehensive approach to nonprofit resource development.

SERVE-U will serve as the resource development firm with your organization to establish an efficient process to establish and sustain your emerging resource development department until your organization has filled full-time, part-time, and consultant positions.

SERVE-U has the ability to spearhead your organization's resource development needs and create a sustainable department that provides a seamless transfer of responsibilities to new talent.

SERVE-U will lead the efforts to secure grants from public, private, and government grants for annual operations, programs, special projects and capital purchases for a diverse portfolio of funding opportunities.

In doing so, SERVE-U will help broaden the organization’s resources by identifying and cultivating funding opportunity with an emphasis on economic development by bridging current social service

fundraising efforts.



Serving tax-exempt organizations that are seeking fund development, grantsmanship, and nonprofit consulting, SERVE-U fills a niche in the philanthropic and government sector for some of our most valuable organizations and their leaders. SERVE-U is an agency that has built upon its reputation in the community with clients coming from referrals. Partnerships are the cornerstone of SERVE-U’s success.


Since 2016, we’ve added many new nonprofit leaders to the SERVE-U learning community, bringing the total numbers of funds raised and managed to more than $1 Billion and counting.
