The success of AP Designs Co. is demonstrated in the work executed for Swish 2 Success, a thriving non-profit I created and executed, from inception to completion. With Swish 2 Success, I have planned and managed successful annual events, maintain healthy sponsorships, and create and sustain fruitful partnerships in the community and beyond. As a result, I'm in a position to elevate others seeking success in their non-profit endeavors.

Incorporating an organization is tedious, I know, but you can rest easy, knowing I'm here to expertly guide you through the steps or complete each step for you, depending which route you choose.

These services are deeper than creating successful organizations. This is about helping you live your dream and facilitate rising non-profits to create a thriving community and increase resources according to your mission. To receive comprehensive non-profit consulting services to incorporate your idea, please click here.

You can create the change 

you want to see in the world.

Like you, I have a passion to serve. This passion became something I wanted to act on, and so, I started Swish 2 Success to give our youth the opportunity to become their best selves, on and off the basketball court. I wanted to help bridge the gap between the disparities that exist for kids and stand in their way of reaching their potential. Without guidance and support, I wouldn't be in this very position, and it's on my heart to not only give back but to help you create and sustain a nonprofit that speaks to your greatest passion, too.
