Fruit In Season Consulting has raised nearly three million dollars for our clients since April of 2017.

"Fruit in Season took us from vision to reality with their step by step approaches.  They really helped us clarify our message so that people were excited to participate with us in what we are doing.  I’m extremely grateful for their work and their friendship that has continued."

"Tom leveraged his expertise in our mission with his long standing funder relationships to double an existing grant and to create new revenue streams with others. His effective approach provided a win-win-win situation for us, the funder and the wider community. It’s a pleasure to work with Tom and his team!"

“Fruit in Season provides expert, comprehensive, reliable development support to a wide range of nonprofits and their leadership.  Tom brings decades of deep understanding and relationship with funders, board members, executive directors, and program leadership.  He can not only help you bridge to the resources you need, but also strengthen your team’s capacity at the same time.”

Ellen Bass

Founding Director

“Fruit in Season understands how to make a vision a reality by doing what is necessary.  This requires accurate needs assessment and solid leadership development.   Tom has many years of practice in both realms.  He has worked effectively with funders, executive directors, members, and people in the community. He helps leaders see, and he helps people function as productive teams.”

“I have known Tom O'Toole for nearly ten years. I served on the Board of the MSPCC while Tom worked in their development operation. He is an extraordinary professional who blends a keen sense of social justice with extraordinary attention to detail. Tom attacks a project with enthusiasm and doesn't stop until the goals have been achieved. He has become a trusted friend and advisor and I consider him an essential part of my work as a political consultant and strategic consultant. I can't recommend him highly enough.”
