Who We Serve

The majority of our clients are nonprofit mission-based organizations. Each is working to enrich communities, support education, or improve healthcare. Our role is to serve as a catalyst, providing knowledge, strategies, and tools to support their mission’s success.  

We’re proud of the long-lasting relationships we build with clients. Many have been with us for more than 20 years. Our average client tenure is 13 years.
