Dani Beam specializes in working with individuals and organizations to find creative, practical solutions to meet an organization’s needs and leverage their strengths. She has worked with local, regional and global nonprofits to train leadership, raise funds, and build organizational capacity. With her holistic, service-oriented approach, she excels in working with organizations to help them achieve their goals.
Dani’s capacity building expertise is rooted in her nearly 20 years as a fundraising professional and meeting facilitator. During that time, she supported and advanced missions of a wide variety of organizations. Through listening and empathy, she develops a keen sense of what clients need and how to work with an organization’s leadership no matter how large or small. Most recently, Dani has tackled revamping systems, employing best practices and creating donor-centered services for one of the largest conservation organizations in the world, The Nature Conservancy. As a result, Dani has learned that all organizations can improve their services no matter how sophisticated and global their reach.
Dani is a graduate of Susquehanna University with a degree in Sociology. Her study of sociology and understanding of what motivates people has served her surprisingly well in her work of helping organizations take new steps toward realizing their vision.
In her free time, Dani enjoys reading, cooking for friends and family, playing with her nephews and traveling to new places. She is also an avid yoga practitioner and believes that organizations, like everyone else, can benefit from breathing deeply from time to time and seeking a grounded perspective
Dani believes that organizations have, at their disposal, everything they need to be successful. She works with clients to cultivate practical solutions from within their unique environment. Because these solutions arise from within an organization’s specific context, all of her services are tailor-made to the clients’ needs. People in non-profits are doing life-affirming work. Therefore, they deserve excellence. They also deserve to have fun.

“Bringing Danielle on to work with our non-profit was one of the best decisions we have made. We initially contacted Danielle for fundraising support in which she created an amazing Case Statement and Donation Letter for us, but she also came and provided the needed board training. Danielle helped us to see where our organizations strengths and weaknesses were and facilitated a much needed discussion for our board around some critical matters. All of these items together are allowing us to grow into a more stable organization which will allow us to grow the work we provide to K-12 schools." - Lori Lynass, Executive Director, Northwest PBIS Network, Inc.
