Overview

Nonprofit consultants work with social sector organizations, namely nonprofits and private foundations, to maximize their societal impact and realize their mission-based goals. NP consultants help these organizations fine-tune programmatic strategy, develop leadership and staff, and implement effective fundraising solutions (or, in the case of private foundations, improve grantmaking processes). In addition, nonprofit consultants are often retained to facilitate executive leadership transitions as well as organizational restructurings.
