Services

NonProfit Solutions Consulting offers an array of services that can be tailored to your needs, whether you work with a non-profit organization or philanthropic foundation. Before embarking on any project, we first clarify your needs, identify the possible services, discuss options and define deliverables.

We take a holistic approach to consulting by viewing individual issues in the context of the organization as a whole. By analyzing the systems and inherent logic of the organization, we can see where blockages to growth exist and offer solutions. We may utilize a single member or several members of our team to help you reach your goals.

Capacity Building

When an organization is operating at the optimal level, the impact upon the community it serves is profound. Capacity building can help an organization get to that level. Capacity building refers to actions that improve a nonprofit’s effectiveness and enhance the ability to accomplish its mission, thus making the organization more successful and sustainable.

Each organization is built differently, and the needs of each organization vary. Non Profit Solutions works collaboratively with executive directors and boards to define and prioritize the organization’s short and long term objectives, identify the issues that roadblock success and highlight the strengths that have been under-utilized. We are then able to strategize and create a formal plan to bring all of the organization’s resources up to a high level of productivity.

Evaluation

We offer evaluation services for Nonprofits & NGOs as well as foundations. The results of our evaluations are used to make programmatic and grant making decisions by our clients. Having reliable data provides a firm platform for decision-making.

Evaluation for Nonprofits & NGOs:


Monitoring & Evaluation

We utilize both qualitative and quantitative methods. Our qualitative work focuses on the identification of the right evaluation questions from the beginning. In addition, we use highly technical and structured methods, including various survey tools and quantitative analysis. We are adept at data collection and analysis: focus group design and facilitation, key informant interviews, sampling and questionnaire design, survey design, data analysis and implementation, qualitative analysis, development and application of logic models. We also have the ability to communicate and disseminate evaluation results to diverse stakeholders and audiences.



Program Evaluation

In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of social programs or to determine a program or project’s impact, we work with the program’s designers to clarify their initial concept. Once that has been established, it is possible to determine the extent to which the project has fulfilled its initial goals. We work collaboratively with the client to determine the correct evaluation questions to utilize. We do this by determining the metrics for success and then we collect feedback and data from the project. Reports based on our findings are used to: improve programs, report successes and support requests for further funding.


Evaluation for Foundations:


  • Identification of Philanthropic Goals
  • Community Needs Assessments
  • Identification of funding gaps
  • Design & Management of request for proposal (rfp) process


We review the organization’s documentation to determine if they are currently recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt, non-profit organization and thus able to receive funding.
