Story: In 2012, Leap72 was hired to transform, IslamInSpanish, a 501(c)3 nonprofit designed to teach latino Muslim converts about the deeper tenets and practices of Islam. The organization was small, local and largely unknown outside of certain Muslim religious circles in Texas. Their nonprofit concept and brand were unique, but the organization was struggling with coming up with a sound growth strategic and long-term strategic vision.

After working with the organization's core founders, Leap developed a five-year plan to take IslamInSpanish from a local $200,000 a year nonprofit, to $1,00,000 a year international nonprofit. The strategic planned worked! By 2017, IslamInSpanish had grown its volunteership by 400%, were regular commenters for CNN Latino and other media outlets, and had expanded operations to three U.S. cities and two countries, and was finally generating more $500,000 in donations at their annual fundraiser.
