I believe in making “here”



My name is Kimberley Sherwood and, for 22 years, I’ve been partnering alongside courageous nonprofits committed to moving from questions to clarity. I have seen the direct impact strategic counsel and thoughtful processes have had on organizations navigating the complexities of collaborative work, diverse boards, ambitious fundraising goals and more.

And I believe the backbone of a thriving community is built on the essential work of social sector organizations. Because when you succeed, we all do.

Let’s get started,

Time-tested insights and wisdom

Imagine trying to gather the collective knowledge and insight of hundreds of nonprofits. While invaluable, the process would be time-consuming and exhausting. This is the benefit of working with us. We provide proven solutions and time-tested wisdom gained from years of hard won successes with organizations just like yours.


Years of diverse nonprofit experience.


Nonprofits we’ve led to clarity and confidence.


Unique nonprofit sectors we’ve consulted within.

Making “here” better, for everyone
