Consulting For Your Nonprofit
Impact Foundry specializes in meeting the unique needs of the organizations we serve. Our staff can help you find creative answers while staying true to your mission.
Board Training: We offer a tailored session of the Essentials of Board Leadership in which the Board of Directors and senior staff can learn together. This 2-hour workshop is an excellent foundation to strategic planning, and opportunity to introduce best practices to your leadership team.
Strategic Planning focuses your Board and staff, and provides a framework for fulfilling your mission, ensuring your relevance, and building sustainability. Create a culture of accountability with measurable goals and action plans. Our staff can facilitate your strategic planning and bring best-practice insights to your process.
Hiring Committee Assistance: We provide best-practice support and perspective to your executive director hiring process by assisting the Board of Directors.
Fund Development: As part of a strategic planning effort or on its own, a fund development plan provides direction for staff and Board members. We can help you develop your fundraising and philanthropy strategies, and provide training to those focused on cultivating, asking, and stewarding donors.
Professional Facilitation: Having a community meeting, or discussion with collaborators, and need professional facilitation? We can support your meeting goals and allow you to fully participate in the discussion.
Organizational Assessment: Are you considering a strategic collaboration, adding a new program, or expanding staff? Do you struggle with what next step is best for building sustainability? We can support you with an organizational assessment and provide consulting on next steps.
Certified Sustainable: Impact Foundry’s Certified Sustainable program is offered in a cohort setting, ideally with nonprofits that are already collaborating (or should be!). Following an assessment to identify key areas for attention, the curriculum is a combination of individual and group work, workshops and classes, and professional consultation.Certified Sustainable focuses on six key areas of nonprofit performance:
- Revenue Structure
- Operational Framework
- Partner Engagement
- Communications & Brand Management
- Measuring Impact and Accountability
- Culture and Leadership Development
Strategic Collaboration is about achieving greater impact. Collaborative members streamline program delivery and share resources. Results are better measured, learning is shared, and best practices emerge. Rather than duplicity, a strategic collaboration leads to efficiency and more comprehensive delivery of services.
