On Demand Consulting

Thought Partner & On Demand Consulting Programs

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Compass rolled out new, short-term pro bono services focused on the needs that nonprofits have right now and enabling business professionals to support them. View a complete list of projects offerings here.

On Demand Consulting Projects
On Demand Projects address a single issue with projects for up to eight weeks. Compass connects nonprofits to a business professional with the expertise to quickly understand and address an immediate challenge with tailored recommendations. A volunteer may invite another consultant to support the project, but most nonprofits are matched with individuals. Volunteer consultants are not expected to support implementation, although many do continue to work with their client in a personal capacity after an engagement concludes.

Thought Partners
Compass connects seasoned business professionals with nonprofit leaders facing urgent decisions regarding programming, finances, strategy, governance, and more. In a confidential setting, Thought Partners provide a trusted ear for scenario planning, courses of action, and may also facilitate difficult conversations among board, staff, and leadership. Depending on a client’s needs, a Thought Partner may offer several informal calls over eight weeks, or schedule formal check-ins with an agenda, reading materials, etc.
