We were built for you.

The Nonprofit Consulting Group was built specifically for nonprofits and philanthropic institutions. Over the past 25 years, we’ve served  hundreds of clients, from large international institutions to small rural agencies; broad collective impact efforts to grantee cohorts; and in all cause areas, from health to the environment.

Driven by sector-specific expertise, data-informed insights, and practical knowledge of nonprofit realities, we maintain a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing nonprofits and philanthropies. See our client list.

We believe in the power of the team.

Our consultants are ready to become the “thought partners” for your team. To help you achieve your goals, we take full advantage of the knowledge and experience already on hand at your organization while bringing objectivity, creativity, and expertise to our work together. We listen, analyze, create, and communicate, leveraging what we have learned from our work with the full spectrum of the sector.

Our role is to co-design solutions that courageously challenge the status quo with an eye toward real-world implementation, practicality and capacity.

Data is our superpower.

We work in facts and data, applying insights from market research, community data, structured interviews and surveys, impact results, and financial analysis to inform options and decisions. We provide the evidence that your decision-making processes need to shape effective strategies and operations. 

Values guide our work.

Our values – Integrity, Partnership, Candor, Inclusion, Rigor, and Creativity – define and guide the way we approach our work with organizations.
