ESC is a 501c3 Non-profit Consulting organization dedicated to transforming communities through our work with nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. We provide one-on-one consulting, large-scale initiatives, executive transitions and succession planning. We work with nonprofits by helping them become stronger through strategic planning, research, board development and organizational capacity building. We work in partnership with philanthropic foundations and nonprofit organizations to assess community needs, develop effective programs, align organizational strategies, and evaluate impact.
ESC staff and our partners includes former executive directors, development directors, and human resource managers. Our Lead Consultants have served on boards, advised boards, made strategic plans and executed them, dealt with difficult employees, and managed businesses through tough times. Through our consulting experience, nonprofit board experience and our careers we have gained experience with virtually all types of nonprofits and the myriad of issues that they face. As a nonprofit, ESC lives in the same environment and faces the same challenges as our clients. Because of our experience, client-centered approach and cultural diversity, we are uniquely able to align growth and change with your mission
Our volunteer consultants have a strong desire to “give back” to the community, and no financial interest selling the next project. They have the maturity and experience to give you straight talk and to deal with sensitive situations. With longer project timeframes and the availability of follow-up visits, we provide consistency and impart institutional knowledge to new staff and board members.
