Philanthropy Associates consultants understand that no two foundations are alike, and that your organization and philanthropic goals are unique. Since its founding in 2001, Philanthropy Associates has worked with a broad range of individuals, foundations and nonprofit organizations to help them address strategic and operational challenges and meet their philanthropic objectives.

No project is too large — or small: from helping foundations hire their first employees, to designing multi-million dollar conservation programs for some of the world’s largest foundations, to training over 100 foundation staff in facilitation skills, to facilitating myriad staff and board retreats, to advising retiring founders on how to develop the next generation of foundation leadership…Philanthropy Associates has the experience, insight and process expertise to help bring your philanthropy to the next level.

From assisting with internal communication and decision-making challenges to facilitating board retreats and strategic planning sessions, our expert consultants customize every aspect of the process to maximize productivity and achieve your desired outcomes.

During an initial complementary assessment, we’ll work with you to identify where our services will have the greatest impact on operations and outcomes. We draw on our extensive network of associates and experts in related fields, such as foundation law, public relations, financial planning, event management and information technology, among other specialities.
