JOHNSON CITY (Feb. 24) – Keller-Ferguson and Associates, founded as an East Tennessee State University Innovation Laboratory affiliate member in 2010, has expanded operations and relocated to a downtown office in the Taylor Office Building, 207 N. Boone St.

            With this growth, Keller-Ferguson and Associates now has two major divisions: Keller-Ferguson and Associates, which provides services to for-profit business clients, and KFA Nonprofit Funding Solutions, which serves nonprofit, government and education agencies.

            KFA Nonprofit Funding Solutions has been the flagship division of the company with fund development services for nonprofit clients. Its services are centered on an all-inclusive development program comprised of defining critical actions based on strategic goals, logic model design, formulating development plans and writing compelling grant proposals.

            KFA Nonprofit company founder Ginger Keller-Ferguson will kick off a spring 2016 workshop tour at the Innovation Laboratory on March 21. The tour will include workshops in Washington D.C., Asheville, Raleigh, New Orleans, Los Angeles and Memphis.

            “We are happy to host this inaugural workshop,” said Dr. Audrey Depelteau, director of Innovation Lab. “Ms. Keller-Ferguson is an expert in her field and her training will help participants navigate all aspects of the grant-writing world.”

            “I am so grateful to be a part of the entrepreneurial community in Johnson City,” says Keller-Ferguson. “I owe a lot of my success and growth to the support I have received from many partners in the region: the Innovation Laboratory, the Small Business Development Center, and fellow entrepreneurs, like Christian Schmid at Christian Schmid Design and Kyle Long at Digital Fridge. We really have a great community of support here to help one another succeed.”
