“ “Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life, and not something you do in your spare time.” ”
Marian Wright Edelman
What motivates us:
The desire to see communities flourish and celebrate their distinctive characteristics and
the reality that all citizens can be engaged and effectively serve in their community.
Pause for a moment to envision an “ideal” community. You’re part of it, right?
Successful communities require buy-in from
many stakeholders – colleagues, volunteers and consumers.
We start each engagement with a “sound check” of culture, values, and intended impact. Once completed, our offerings in the area of Planning include:
Staff & Volunteer Development
Information Technology Optimization
Corporate Social Responsibility
Our Implementation consulting is a side-by-side experience. Because we won’t always be at your side it’s important for you to know what to do and how to do it.

Operationalizing Strategic Plans & Monitoring Progress
Annual Fund, Major Gifts & Capital Campaigns
Staff Recruitment & Onboarding
Grant making, Volunteerism and Community Engagement
Short-term engagements that provide inspiration, jumpstart initiatives, and build skills that strengthen organizations and individuals include:
