Let us help.

We believe in making here better – wherever “here” might be. And so do the social sector organizations we work with. Whether through coaching, consulting or facilitation, we’ll guide your organization forward to greater clarity and confidence.

Courageous nonprofits ask:

Our board meetings are a waste of time.

We’re stuck.

We want to be more effective.
We need to raise $1 million.
Our organization is at a crossroads.
We have a new Executive Director.
We’re thinking of merging with another nonprofit.
We lost core funding that we depended on.
Our board isn’t aligned.

Now what?

Question@2xCreated with Sketch.
Fortunately, we specialize in “now what?”

From realigning boards to creating clear roadmaps to sustainable fundraising, we have worked with hundreds of organizations like yours to find clarity, facilitate important discussions and chart actionable paths forward.

Philosophy in action.

As a nonprofit leader, your time is valuable and in high demand. Without an actionable path forward, reports tend to sit in unopened emails or stashed away under piles of paperwork. We’re here to bridge the gap between philosophy and action, empowering you to lead boldly and effectively. 

Coaching

Coaching is personal, not organizational. We customize our approach to help you reach your goals while building your skills and confidence. 

Coaching has helped:
  • Committed leaders navigate the complex structure of their nonprofit
  • Courageous individuals improve their “marketability” and advance their careers

Consulting

Your organization’s mission is our compass. Through consulting, we develop creative solutions to complex problems – providing clarity and focus.

Consulting has helped:
  • Create intelligent business plans that guide the staff and board into the future
  • Develop capital campaigns and financial planning that support sustainable fundraising

Facilitating

Facilitating takes organizations from questioning to clarity. These sessions are engaging and fun – while producing tangible results.

Facilitating has helped:
  • Create action plans for boards and staff to move forward confidently
  • Realign key team members on the organization's financial focus areas

Featured case study

Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado

Service: Facilitation

Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) activates volunteers to help maintain Colorado’s natural resources, outdoor spaces and recreational facilities.

Challenge

With the state’s population and tourism industry soaring, VOC needed help developing a thoughtful, strategic plan to build capacity in place of the decreased state and federal funding for public lands.

Solution

Offering pragmatic tools and strategic roadmaps, we facilitated open, honest conversation among board members and staff that led VOC to shift their strategic focus from that of trail builder and maintainer to steward, capacity-builder and thought-leader.

“Charting the future of a sustainable organization is a big endeavor that takes time, and we needed to be patient. This is where Kimberley Sherwood shined. She is an incredible facilitator who brings honesty and candor to the process without judgment. The result was a solutions-based vision, not just a Band-Aid approach.”

- Ann Baker Easley, Executive Director
