Pair strategic advising with actionable plans.
We can help you take a closer look at your organization and create a practical path forward.

Effective, mission-driven strategies can help your organization and community incorporate learning and overcome hurdles. As you work to create or refine your culture and practice, we can help you:

  • Develop theories of change and logic models
  • Work with your board and leadership to refine your program or grantmaking strategy
  • Plan and manage capacity building programs to benefit your grantees or community
  • Design hiring, on-boarding, and training programs to develop and support staff
We work with foundations and nonprofits of all sizes, geographies, and missions to find innovative solutions for improving your philanthropy.

This work is designed entirely to meet your needs, based on your unique assets and challenges. Work might include:

  • Organizational and board development
  • Designing programs to support talent pipelines and staff
  • Capturing unique programs and moments in your program
  • Fostering peer-learning networks and convenings

Thank you for creating a space for us to reflect, dream, innovate, and define who we are in the GVSU Career Center! You’ve made ‘planning’ an inspiring exercise and not something that feels clunky and unmotivating.”
