Maria Fibiger, President / Senior Consultant
With over a decade of consulting practice and 25+ years of career experience in the nonprofit and public administration fields, Maria brings a wealth of knowledge to her work. A deep passion and understanding of the importance of nonprofit organizations and a community’s socio-economic stability and growth are the inspiration and stimulus for Three Dog Consulting’s business development, and more particularly, Maria’s interest in cultivating methods to successfully assist nonprofit organizations.
Maria has held top-level nonprofit management positions for numerous organizations and as such, her view of the day-to-day challenges faced by so many nonprofit organizations is realistic and down-to-earth. From providing board and fund development guidance to a new 501(c)(3) chapter of a national organization providing legal representation to abused and neglected children, to developing & implementing an operational work plan for a 6-county wellness program for cancer patients, to fundraising & marketing plan development for a small animal welfare organization… her talents and expertise have benefited and provided fine support to Three Dog Consulting clients. Maria is also a sought-after trainer/facilitator for a wide range of nonprofit topics.
Maria holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration & Urban Planning with a Certification in Nonprofit Management & Organizational Development from the University of Illinois at Chicago, together with an A.A.S. Degree in Criminal Justice minoring in Theater/Dance from Fulton-Montgomery Community College (SUNY). She has continually expanded her consulting skills through participation in continuing education and training. Maria is founding Certified Capacity Consultant of the Nonprofit Lifecycles Institute, utilizing the Nonprofit LifecyclesTM capacity building and assessment model of renown author & nonprofit advisor, Dr. Susan Kenny Stevens.
Believing that it’s important to give back to your community, for more than 25 years, Maria has been a volunteer, committee member, and/or board member for many community organizations. She also served for nine years as a Grant Selection Panelist for the New York State Decentralization Arts Program in three regions of Upstate NY.
(Maria spends "home time" in both the Upstate NY and the Lexington, VA regions with her husband Dave, 2 dogs, 2 really obnoxious tuxedo cats, and a sweet semi-feral cat named "Grazie".)
