We partner with philanthropic and social change leaders to bring together the best people, ideas, tools, and resources to address the critical issues of our day.


What We Do


We curate customized leadership and learning experiences for groups that equip nonprofit and philanthropic leaders with the mindsets, tools, and skills they need to deepen their effectiveness, build their organizations, strengthen their governance, engage their networks, and change systems.


We convene diverse stakeholders to collaboratively design solutions to complex problems with an eye toward sustainability and scale. We also design, catalyze, and support diverse networks and donor collaboratives that are needed to create systems-level change.


We help clients develop an overarching vision and strategy for impact, driving to smart answers with a customized process. We surface insights that drive effective strategy, map out a plan, and then provide a continuum of services to implement that plan, from helping clients build internal operations, to providing outsourced services for granting/investing, monitoring, and reporting.

Research for Action

We leverage our unique expertise in thought-leadership for specific research projects that create accessible and actionable knowledge. Our research work is focused on providing tools for the sector, developing insights, and disseminating ideas through publications, media, trainings or workshops, and speaking engagements.

Our Client Partners

In our best work we act as one team with our clients, leveraging our respective strengths, co-creating solutions, and building our capacity together. Our clients represent a wide variety of social impact organizations and collaborations, and include the executive leadership of private foundations, family offices, donors at all stages of their giving journeys, and leading social entrepreneurs.
