Rubber City Development Consulting

What types of products or services do you offer?

We offer grants and development consulting to nonprofit organizations, with a focus on smaller and less-established groups. We also offer a discount program for organizations doing great things but unable to afford services.

How do you help your customers?

We offer grant writing, proactive consulting, strategy sessions, public relations, supporting document creation, and other nonprofit development services.

How and when did the business get started? 

November 2020

What is your business’s relationship with the city of Akron and Akronites?

I was born in Akron and grew up here. When I was 19, I moved to Georgia and was there for 7 years. Now that I am back, I feel like I am finally home. I want to connect with local nonprofits to offer my services as a way to give back to this community I love.

How do you see your business growing/evolving into the future?

We are growing pretty rapidly and are hiring staff local to Akron. I am also in the process of creating an internship program to teach nonprofit development to people who would otherwise be unable to find active job experience in this field.

How can people support your business?

They can like my Facebook Page and share my posts, as well as telling everyone they know about what we do!
