We work with nonprofits to be their most effective by focusing on five main areas.

Governance & Board Development

Great boards provide good governance, hold themselves accountable for the overall health of the organization and use their expertise to provide advice and support the organization’s work. Learn More.

Organizational Development

Strategic guidance, through the strategic planning process, keeps organizations on their course and allows leadership to shape direction and follow its priorities systematically. Learn More.

Implementation & Change Management

Knowing how to implement your strategic plan is just as important as having one. Learn More.

Knowledge Management

The hardest task is often not how to generate knowledge but learning how to better share, organize and store this valuable asset in a timely manner. Learn More.

Monitoring & Evaluation

Monitoring and evaluating programs ensures that they stay relevant, impactful and on trend for the intended results. Learn More.
