Our services are custom-designed to fit your organization’s needs

Now entering our 21st year, Horizon has helped more than 60 clients raise nearly $112 million in private and public donations and grants, primarily in southern Delaware.

Over time, our fund development services have expanded to include nonprofit and foundation formation and management and construction services for smaller to mid-sized projects. We can also refer clients to bridge financing options, specifically for nonprofit organizations.

Providing construction services as an independent consulting firm can result in significant savings to clients over typical fees charged by commercial architectural/engineering and construction firms.

Clients served with combined services over the past few years include:

  • Lewes Public Library (an $11.4 million effort)
  • Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding
  • Fort Miles Historical Association and Museum
  • Lewes History Museum
  • Lewes Senior Activity Center
  • The Historic St. Peter’s Episcopal Church
  • Sussex Montessori School

We also provide complete nonprofit management services for Greater Lewes Foundation, Sussex County Land Trust and Fort Miles Historical Association and Museum.
