Community Partnership & Sponsors


Mikeworth Consulting, a fiscal strategy firm founded in 2000, is a proud sponsor, guide and supporter of small non-profit organizations. A specialized focus is on the development of partnerships with for-profit businesses that share in prosperity-based practices, idea exchange with the community, and that also creatively resource-share in order to magnify a non-profit’s ability to deliver their mission at its highest level.

Our teams work primarily with strategy and implementation on fresh ways to use human creativity to deliver higher impact deliverables. We have been a proud supporter of SOMFAM since it was in its idea stage and have guided their leadership to think and grow differently.
