You Need Us

As non-profit managers and directors, you listen to your community, answer to multiple client groups, funding sources and community needs. You need support to keep your vision and mission vibrant and true.

As Executive Directors and Senior Managers, you are often spending too much precious time on backroom administration – drafting grant applications, developing financial reports, managing IT issues, wrestling evaluations into shape. You need to be able to focus on programs, services and the systemic issues affecting the communities you serve. You want essential headspace and time for planning, time to create new revenue streams, and time to show your leadership in community engagement.

Initial feasibility studies, and our on-the-ground discussions over the past year, found a real need for professional support in Evaluation (set up, monitoring  and reporting), IT, Accounting and Reporting, Grant and Proposal Writing, Event Planning, and more.

What We Do
