Benefits to Nonprofits
Compass’ consulting services often extend beyond the specific scope of the project. Compass not only delivers focused analyses and recommendations, but also advises along the way, so that our clients can internalize the most useful and relevant management principles. At the end of projects:
- Executive Directors experience a sense of renewal and energy, and an increased feeling of partnership with their Board.
- Board members and staff experience a higher level of clarity around goals, roles and methods.
- Nonprofits see a more efficient use of resources through improved management and financial planning.
- Compass volunteers often stay involved with their client, and in many cases, join the Board.
