Approach & Philosophy

Strengthening the People who Make the World Better

​We are committed to learning and AGGREGATING KNOWLEDGE - there's a lot of great information, tools, and emerging practices from business, philanthropy, and nonprofits. It's hard for an individual or organization to fulfill their "day job" and keep an eye on the wider field. We are constantly learning so we can share resources that meet your needs.

EMPOWERING YOU - we don't just produce great "deliverables" (though we do that too) - we help you build the knowledge and skills to lead your team, ask meaningful questions that lead to solutions, and provide tools to make better decisions. We build on your strengths and your organization's strengths to find sustainable solutions and build your capacity to address future challenges.

We believe in RESPECT, EQUITY, and we love to LISTEN to your stories and the wisdom you have acquired from the work thus far. We care deeply about the people and causes we partner with. We are stronger when we work together - philanthropists, organizations, social entrepreneurs, and the communities engaged in the work - all of whom have insights and creative ideas that will increase our impact.
