A Message from Kath Delaney, Founder of Madera Group

    Kath Delaney

    To advance social change I launched the Madera Group twelve years ago. Through my skills and expertise I could leverage my network to grow social mission organizations and promote progessive leadership around the world. 

    Since our founding, we have worked with foundations, philanthropists, members of Congress, global leaders and innovators. Our working relationships span across the women’s business sector, healthcare advocates, sustainability and national security experts, education reformers, and new system thinkers.

    I am blessed to work alongside Madera’s consulting team and our college student interns who are as smart as they come, committed, and highly creative professionals. As we begin our 12th year of business we are currently available for new projects. If you want to learn more about our services, consultants, and clients please email me directly at kdelaney@maderagroup.net.

    I wish you much success in your work and look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you for your interest in Madera Group.

    Thank you for all you do!

    Kath Delaney


    “Hiring the Madera Group to evaluate our fundraising and communications strategies and then to recommend and implement fundamental changes was an amazing decision. Madera has helped us make procedural and infrastructure changes that have increased our income, our impact and our capacity to protect the lives of animals. As a result of our work with Madera, we have also changed the way we incorporate development and communications goals into our program work—changes that will continue to pay dividends for ALDF for years to come.”

    Stephen Wells, Executive Director, Animal Legal Defense Fund

    “Engaging the services of the Madera team was one of the best things that we at the Diabetes Hands Foundation could have done. Their experience and background shined at every step of the engagement. We have received great value out of working with the Madera Group and learned a lot in the process. I highly recommend them to any nonprofit seeking strategic advice on fundraising and development.”

    Manny Hernandez, President and CEO, Diabetes Hands Foundation

    “If you want to build a movement, raise money, make news or change the culture, Kath Delaney and her agency are the people to call. Madera Group helped my organization strategize, organize and connect women business owners to opportunities for growth.”
