PHILANTHROPY AND GRANT POLICY

Giving out grants is easy -- ensuring that grants are leveraged to achieve the greatest impact is not.  How do philanthropic organizations support core funding yet inspire innovation?  How do foundations foster best practices and collaboration among their grantees?  Our services ensure your valuable dollars maximize your impact:
 

  • Research and landscape analyses to identify funding priorities

  • Design or repair grantmaking policies, processes and documentation, including streamlining through online grantmaking

  • Grant program implementation

  • Community engagement and convening grantee and partner communities

  • Focus groups and evaluation

  • Expert support to nonprofit grantees to identify and overcome organizational, programmatic, human resource or other barriers

PROGRAM PLANNING, EVALUATION  AND IMPROVEMENT

Before you invest resources in developing or expanding a new priority area, you want to understand who is already working in the field.  What is the need for services and what are the indicators for its success?  What has been the program impact to date?  We will help you survey the field, talk to stakeholders, develop the seeds of collaboration, and analyze the competition.  In short, we can help you build - or evaluate and rebuild - a solid program on a strong foundation.

TRANSITIONAL LEADERSHIP AND INTERIM STAFFING

Change is inevitable -- but when the Executive Director leaves, the leadership void can have a cascading effect on staff morale, funder confidence, program stability, financial controls and more, making it even more challenging for a new Director to take the helm. In interim roles, we manage day-to-day operations, implement policy and program initiatives, manage change, and help staff and board keep their focus on the horizon.  We can also give your organization the elasticity it needs by filling temporary roles and implementing discrete projects.
