Our customized learning programs incorporate a variety of resources designed to generate commitment to philanthropy as a core organizational value. Recognizing that a thriving culture of philanthropy requires commitment from organizational leadership and engagement of various constituencies, our programs reach multiple audiences and guide them toward philanthropic excellence. Built on more than two decades of research into change leadership and nonprofit culture building, our programs are designed to equip clients to position their teams for successful, lasting, highly beneficial change.
Programs unique to each organization and culture
Our programs may feature quantitative and qualitative assessments, professional training plans and coaching engagements for various constituencies, and targeted tools for implementation and progress. While some similarities exist, each program requires adaptation to the culture, to the timing of a campaign, and to leadership’s readiness for change. We work closely with our clients to develop a plan that complements other initiatives and activities underway.
Developed to change behavior and build strong partnerships
Our programs are built on fundamental adult-learning principles that support adoption of change. Recognizing the psychology of change, we assist teams as they lead various constituencies through these critical processes. By tailoring each program to address organizations’ current state and future vision, we are a true partner with philanthropy leaders whose organizations are undergoing a process of change.
Creative solutions that drive optimal philanthropic performance across your organization
As we come alongside our clients to explore training solutions, we typically begin with an assessment of the philanthropy team. As leaders identify salient needs, we tailor programs that can vary in duration from a single engagement to a full year of comprehensive skill development. Our blended learning approach ensures teams have access to facilitator-led training combined with online reinforcement, individual coaching, and customized strategic partnerships.
Moving forward, we work with clients to engage stakeholders beyond the philanthropy team. From institutional leadership to board members to key subject matter experts, we develop a plan to equip all who can support engagement with individual donors for their unique, critical roles.
