About the Tulipana Group

The Tulipana Group is a small consultancy based in Omaha, Nebraska and working throughout the midwest. We specialize in helping non-profit organizations plan and implement capital campaigns, enhance and grow fund development, train and develop Boards of Directors, and in facilitation, including strategic planning.

After working 25 years in the Omaha non-profit community, Pete Tulipana created a team of professionals with expertise in grant writing, facilitation, development and fundraising, and started the Tulipana Group. Pete believes in keeping the group small, because that enables him to be personally involved with every client.
