Strengthening the Sector

Foundations can deepen their community impact by supporting capacity building to develop nonprofit resilience and effectiveness. We work collaboratively with funders to create and deliver capacity-building programs that help grantees and community leaders become stronger and better prepared to take advantage of the opportunities offered by a dynamic environment.

Developing Effective Organizations

We help organizations align strategy, structure, and culture to accelerate advancement of their mission. Our seasoned team of consultants brings deep, hands-on social sector experience, a keen awareness of emerging trends, and a commitment to excellence as we create capacity-building programs that meet both nonprofit needs and foundation goals.

Capacity building for communities of grantees can be particularly powerful, enabling cohorts of nonprofit professionals to learn together, acquiring new skills to meet local challenges. We partner with foundations to develop customized capacity-building solutions for lasting impact.
