Our Company's Story
The name Baker Street Consulting Group pays homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character, Sherlock Holmes, the world's greatest consulting detective. Like Holmes, we approach each project with a great deal of strategy, thoroughness and hard work.
Originally founded in Stevens Point by Jim Radford in 1995 as Holmes, Radford & Avalon, Inc., Baker Street Consulting Group was created by Jim in early 2017 to provide services exclusively to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations. BSCG is a new firm based upon a solid tradition of over 23 years of experience serving close to 200 nonprofit clients in Wisconsin and the Midwest. We have successfully conducted well over 130 campaign feasibility studies and directed nearly 100 capital campaigns, 90% of which reached or exceeded their goals.
BSCG is distinguished by our depth of major gift experience, leadership abilities and fundraising skills to drive campaigns forward. We are collaborators with our client partners and we are a dependable, action-oriented firm when it comes to achieving campaign goals.
BSCG consultants have been involved in a range of projects anywhere from Annual Fund Programs for health, educational, cultural and social service nonprofits, to mid-range multi-million dollar Capital Campaign Programs for organizations like Fort Memorial Hospital, Portage County Public Library, Cedar Community and Oshkosh Community YMCA, all the way to $20+ million campaigns for institutions such as The State Historical Society of Missouri, Shriners’ Hospitals for Children – St. Louis, and the magnificent restoration of St. Louis’ Central Pubic Library.
