“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.

Our Philosophy:

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:

Resource Development

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. Our goal is to hand off the baton to you…and then meet you at the finish line for a high five, a fist bump or a handshake. Our Implementation engagements include:
Operationalizing Strategic Plans & Monitoring Progress

Annual Fund, Major Gifts & Capital Campaigns

Staff Recruitment & Onboarding

Grant making, Volunteerism and Community Engagement

Professional Development

Short-term engagements that provide inspiration, jumpstart initiatives, and build skills that strengthen organizations and individuals include:
Staff Retreats

Board Retreats

Workshops and Trainings
