Helping Nonprofits Grow their Mission since 1986!
Our Capacity Building and Organizational Development services help nonprofits nationwide increase their relevancy, performance and financial sustainability. We have a proven track record serving all sizes and types of secular and faith-based organizations and institutions.
As Capacity Building consultants, we start by capturing an objective and comprehensive picture of your organization's current "As-Is" state and then help you determine its future "To-Be" state... then most importantly, we craft a Development Plan to FUND your future!
Capacity Challenge #1 - Staying Mission True
How faithful has your organization been to its original mission both operationally and philosophically? Staying true to your mission is essential to engaging staff and earning a donor's trust.
Capacity Challenge #2 - Earning Donor Trust
We specialize in showing organizations how to build and leverage donor trust, so a donor progresses from being a "transaction-based" giver to a lifelong, major gifts investors in your mission.
As Organizational Development specialists, we help nonprofits overcome the most complex organizational issues that are often based on a Lack of Proficiency or a Lack of Initiative...
Lack of Proficiency
All too often, as a nonprofit matures, it outgrows the staff's abilities or its internal systems may not keep pace with the ever-expanding scope of the organization. Targeted, results-oriented education and organizational development is the key to build and sustain operational success!
Lack of Initiative
In other situations, the staff knows how to do their job but no longer puts in the effort because of conditions beyond their control. Transforming an organization's culture with new knowledge, systems and processes is essential to sustain a committed and motivated staff.
