How We Work
Our process is one of collaboration. We start by listening and learning. Then we provide innovative, customized solutions to achieve results and help organizations thrive.
We bring a personalized approach to
every project, acting as external partners
to increase the organizational capacity
of nonprofits by addressing
critical needs in key areas.
Our emphasis on collaborative partnership means we take the time to understand the unique culture, concerns and challenges of each organization from the outset of the relationship.
What We Do
Our focus on capacity building has several fundamental components: resource development, organizational effectiveness and leadership development. In each case, we work to help organizations establish a long-term vision to drive the plan for achieving their goals.
We start with an assessment, which can provide key insights and information that organizations may be missing and is the first step in providing a framework for
clarifying, prioritizing and planning. The assessment process may include
some or all of the following:
Capacity Building Readiness Assessment
Internal & External Scans
We believe in the value of building a donor focused culture to deepen and maintain the connection between an organization and its supporters.
We can help boost fundraising impact
through short term projects such as:
Developing Donor Engagement Initiatives
Facilitating Board Retreats
For more complex resource development needs, we assist in developing a strategic fundraising plan to strengthen an organization's funding base.
We help organizations create a culture of philanthropy and improve their
fundraising efforts, with a focus on:
Assessment & Planning
Training & Coaching of Staff &Board Members
Organizational Effectiveness & Leadership Development
