What we Do

 

Our clients count on us to help them transform uncertainty into possibility and change into measurable progress. Our team knows how to anticipate challenges and provide the innovative solutions organizations need to thrive. 

high impact, cost-effective intervention

We partner with clients to promote lasting progress and sustainable change that won’t strain budgets.

We are a consulting collaborative, not a firm. Our consultants aren’t paid a salary. That means we have far less overhead than larger consulting firms. This business structure allows us to pass the savings on to our clients and enables us to bring in top talent to work with clients on large and small projects alike. In uncertain times, organizations need our services more than ever, but they also need to make smart choices with limited funds. 

Fund Development

Fund development isn’t just fundraising, it’s the process of building relationships that help organizations build capacity & meet the needs of their constituents. We help organizations develop, implement & perfect this process.

Strategy & Planning

Proper planning strengthens an organization’s ability to adapt to changes in the environment. Nonprofits need adaptive strategy now more than ever. We help clients create a dynamic plan that offers development teams real strategies they can use.

Community Development

Building relationships & embracing collaboration is more important than ever. Board members, volunteers, management & administrative staff all have a role to play in community development. We help clients develop strategic partnerships & engage stakeholder communities.

Program Development & Evaluation

We help organizations maintain a strategic approach to staffing, budgeting, funding & program evaluation. We work with clients to retool programs if necessary & develop models of service that meet the needs of client communities.

Digital Infrastructure Planning & Development

Every nonprofit is engaged in online fundraising, but they need to do far more than that. We show organizations how to use software platforms & other tools to engage donors, deliver services & build community.

Board Development

Forward momentum stalls without effective governance. We provide the tools nonprofits need to create a well-informed, focused & cohesive governance team.

Exploring Community Collaborations During a Pandemic

Collaboration is often seen by policy makers and community leaders as an answer to complex issues. The word “collaboration” itself can have multiple meanings and expectations. Common questions include: Are collaborations the answer to implement changes in social policies? Do collaborations impact social issues, services, and communities? Why do funding sources encourage programs and initiatives in communities to collaborate?
