Establishing Excellence: Creating a Great Nonprofit

Ready to start your journey?


New and small nonprofits frequently struggle for years to be viable.  Establishing a solid foundation early is the best way to increase the odds of success and sustainability. This model is designed to provide ease of entry for nonprofits.  We begin in a cohort model, where participants can benefit from collective support and thinking and gradually evolves into one-one-few coaching and finally one-on-one consulting. By going through this learning track you will launch your organization on a stronger footing than many others ever achieve.
