In a region as rich with nonprofits as ours, the state and sophistication of these organizations can vary widely. The same goes for the experience of volunteer board members in a place that’s always welcoming new, community-minded residents who want to be engaged.
Through I3, we co-invest with nonprofits in customized professional consulting and other technical assistance, so they can strengthen their operational effectiveness, management, and board governance.
We know that one size can’t fit all when it comes to capacity-building programs for our nonprofit community. Whether it’s “board governance 101” for a fresh wave of volunteers or an intensive consulting engagement for a good group on the cusp of great things, we strive to meet our nonprofit partners where they are. Our I3 consultants are a cohort of 14 highly skilled consultants with expertise in all aspects of nonprofit governance and operations available to collaborate with nonprofit boards and staff.
