About KA6

KA6 only works with two or three clients at a time. We do not market, we do not advertise, we do not want to be bigger or have more clients. Our goal at KA6 is to provide single-minded, comprehensive services to a limited number of organizations and in so doing make them more effective providers of service to their constituents.

When you hire KA6 you get Kurt Aschermann and Kurt Aschermann only. You don’t pay for extra staff, administrative costs, or all the other things larger consulting firms bundle into your fee. You pay for Kurt.

  • Kurt Aschermann is one of America's most brilliant non-profit strategists. If you're interested in maintaining the status quo, then you should probably look elsewhere. But if you are seeking creative and enduring partnerships that will challenge your thinking and change the game for your organization for the long-term, then don't miss the opportunity to learn from Kurt. He has the heart of a coach and the patience and caring of a mentor. Kurt is a generous teacher who delights in the success of others. I owe much of my professional success to the lessons I learned directly from observing and working with him to benefit millions of kids.

  • Kurt’s subject matter expertise, relationships and past experiences allows for a unique and invaluable view on the intersection point on maximizing a for-profit and non-profit partnership. We initially engaged Kurt to assist us on facilitating a key partnership session with our team and a non-profit. Since then he has become a key extension of our team. First, let me share more about my initial engagement in which Kurt led our partnership planning day. (more…)

  • Kurt Aschermann created many of the non-profit cause-related marketing strategies that today are commonly seen across the country. Prior to Kurt's artistic and substantive touch, the non-profit was stuck with psa's running at 3am, with no assessment of brand value nor consideration of how to best use that brand. Today, with the charitable giving world quite different than it was 20 years ago, these tools are more critical than ever.
