Marcia Bloomberg worked in the nonprofit sector in Cleveland, Ohio and as an independent consultant in Massachusetts, she was frustrated by the lack of a one-stop-shop that features a listing of the consultants, coaches, grant-writers, web designers, executive recruiters, trainers, attorneys, accountants and others who serve nonprofit organizations. So out of her own need and the need of others, she created NonProfit Direct to connect nonprofit organizations to the resources they need to succeed. She spent 25 years in the nonprofit sector, first in New England and then in Ohio and knows firsthand the challenges faced by nonprofit leadership: philanthropic development, board governance, employee supervision and training, communication with constituents, and more. She has worked as a professional within the Jewish and general communities, including The Family Place in White River Junction, VT, the Dresden School District in Hanover, NH, the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland and the Cleveland Hillel Foundation. Her positions included grant writing, government relations, annual campaign, volunteer and professional development, board training and employee hiring, training and supervision. She graduated from Brandeis University with a BA in English and American Literature and a MA in Jewish Communal Service. She is also a certified Empowerment/Life coach with accreditation from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC).
The Bloomberg Group was founded in 2007 to provide coaching and consulting services to nonprofit organizations. NonProfit Direct: The NonProfit National Resource Directory was created in December 2008. There are now 225+ listed specialists, almost weekly teleseminars, a monthly e-newsletter and a nonprofit membership option.
