We believe that
every nonprofit is unique and that its needs must be evaluated in the context of the organization's environment.

Markgraf Consulting specializes in nonprofit consulting services. We believe in the work nonprofits do. Because we strongly believe in your work, our initial consultation is free. We want to learn more about your circumstances and needs.


We are solution focused.

Together we will explore several potential solutions that fit your circumstances and the resources you have available. Your success is important to us. If we’re not your best option, we will be transparent and help you identify other resources.

About Me.

Markgraf Consulting started with the belief that together we can make the world a little better.


I have worked in the nonprofit world for most of my career and care deeply about the opportunities and services nonprofits bring to a community. I want them to succeed. As a nonprofit leader, I have first-hand experience with nonprofits' challenges. As a consultant, I bring industry best practices to the organizations that work with me.


My education provides a firm foundation for consultant work. I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Martin Lutheran College and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of South Dakota.
