About

We work with social entrepreneurs and their funders to develop and evaluate programs, build organizational capacity and culture, and raise money. Our best work is with organizations poised for growth, turnaround, or pivot. We have been providing strategy, social impact reporting, and fundraising services since 1998.
What we do.

We are connectors, communicators, and creative problem solvers. Over the years, we have raised over $70 million. We’ve taught hundreds of workshops and classes, developed dozens of strategic plans, and advised nonprofit and philanthropy leaders—in the United States and in places around the world. We’ve made grants, managed programs, served on boards, and directed organizations. We’re about strategy, alignment, structure and improvisation in service of making a real difference on problems that matter. And we don't shy away from the tough stuff with executives, boards of directors, staff, or donors.
