Organizational & Development Assessments
If you’re launching a new strategic plan or fundraising initiative, struggling to meet your fundraising goals, or simply wondering if you’re missing opportunities, an assessment can help position you for greater success. In partnership with your staff, board and community, we will identify strengths and weaknesses and deliver realistic recommendations for growth and improvement that are right-sized to your human and financial resources.

Finally, we believe the best plans are short and actionable, with clear waypoints you can use to see if you’re on track.
