Fine Point Consulting works with a lot of clients that are creating new technology, products, and ideas. But, in addition to these wonderful clients Fine Point Consulting also serves nonprofits doing amazing things.
Families and Schools Together, also known as FAST, is one of our exciting Not for Profit clients! They are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the community build protective factors around kids. Their organization produces and distributes programs that teach parents how to become empowered and use this empowerment to help their children to succeed. There are a wide range of programs offered that are separated out by the developmental stages of the child’s life (Baby FAST, Pre-K FAST, Kids FAST, Middle School FAST, and Teen FAST) this allows the programs to effectively be used as preventions or early intervention regardless of which stage the family’s lifecycle is in.
Families and Schools Together are known for adding value to schools and the surrounding communities due to its connection with so many roles in society. FAST works with parents of all religions, social settings and professions to ensure that all parents can and will succeed through the empowerment mentioned above. FAST also works with Educators to make sure that all children are succeeding with the help of their parent’s involvement while changing the climate of the school through this connection. In addition to the roles of the parents and the schools FAST also has the approval and support of Law Enforcement, Health Care Providers and Communities in general.
We are super excited to be a part of this growing organization and cannot wait to see what other fantastic things they are going to be doing in the future! To check them out visit their website here!
Sweet, Sweet Summertime. The perfect time to be outdoors, embracing what Madison, Wisconsin, and nature has to offer. That is the motto of our newest FPC Client of the Week, Natural Resources Foundation (NRF)!
NRF is a non-profit organization that connects generations to the wonders of Wisconsin’s lands, waters, and wildlife through conservation, education, engagement, and giving. Formed in 1986, with the support of donors and members, the foundation has boosted private sector investment and involvement in state-managed natural resources; our waters, lands, and wildlife.
The list of the lives they’ve touched and the education they spread is endless, but just a few of the things they have done are as follows:
- Raise money for the care and management of public lands, like State Natural Areas, wildlife and fishing areas.
- Raise money for the interns that radio track Whooping Cranes in Wisconsin, support research and monitoring of Kirtland’s Warbler and other rare species of birds
- Manage 65 endowment funds that donors have established to benefit a special place, animal or part of the natural world dear to them
- Give out small grants to nature centers, classrooms to get students outside, and Friends groups doing conservation projects in all 72 counties in Wisconsin
- Coordinate the largest field trip program in Wisconsin that takes participants to some of the most beautiful parts of our state from the Mississippi River to Lake Superior, led by the expert researchers and naturalists
We here at Fine Point are incredibly humbled to be able to work with such an incredible organization that not only protects this beautiful land we call home, but also touches the lives of those around them. So next time you are hiking, swimming, or strolling through the many different marshlands, forests, and lakes, or embracing the beautiful wildlife here in Wisconsin, think of the Natural Resources Foundation. Think of all the people that clean this land, educate on it, and embrace all it has to offer! And if you want to become a member or learn more about the NRF, the foundation has kindly offered complimentary memberships to all Fine Point blog readers. All you need to do is send your contact information to info@WisConservation.org and you will receive their seasonal Bridges newsletter and early access to sign up for field trips in the Spring of 2015!
So sign up today, get outside, and enjoy everything this beautiful state has to offer! Live by the NRF Motto and connect with the Wonders of Wisconsin!
