Who We Serve

Tailored solutions that increase influence and mission impact.

Since 1998, La Piana Consulting has been a pioneer in developing and disseminating new thinking and methodologies for the social sector. Innovation is in our DNA. We developed nonprofit Mergers & Alliances, then reinvented strategic planning. From the beginning, our mission has been to promote greater social impact through our clients: foundations and other nonprofits. Today, however, a wider array of actors is working to create the social and environmental change that we traditionally associate with the nonprofit sector.
