Big visions require the right partner on your team.

We empower nonprofits in Cleveland and beyond.

Founded in 2017, The Empowerment Center is a business empowerment consulting firm with headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio providing services for nonprofit organizations nationwide. We specialize in empowering nonprofit organizations with the tools and resources they need to thrive both financially and operationally so they can best serve their communities.

Not-for-profit organizations are the backbone of our local societies and provide much-needed services for people from all walks of life, but at the end of the day, they are businesses that must stay ahead of the curve. To do so, organizations must sustain financial security and exercise strategic operational management and smart business acumen to be successful.

We provide results-driven grant and nonprofit development services for clients in Cleveland and across the country. With a high success rate and hundreds of clients served, we have the skills and expertise to meet the development needs of any client in the public or nonprofit sector. We’ll assess what your organization needs are then work with you one-on-one or collaboratively with your entire team to reach your goals and create a plan of action to reach them.

Our team of trained professionals is knowledgeable and committed to being with your organization every step of the way. We empower nonprofits with tools and resources they can use to be sustainable for years to come.

We provide the following services:
