We help nonprofit organizations realize opportunities, solve problems, and manage change.
Onward is a team of veteran nonprofit leaders: CEOs, executive directors, and senior managers who joined together to support nonprofit organizations in a new way. Our partners have run organizations ranging in size from $250,000 to $25 million, with staffs of 1 to 175. Together, we combine high-level strategy and expertise with hands-on execution to support mission-focused organizations.
At Onward, we provide strategy and tactics and execute when needed. Too often, consultants help define the process but stop there. At Onward, we go as far as you need. After creating the strategy, we can manage the details, hire the staff, make the phone calls — whatever you need to get the job done.
Each of us has walked in your shoes. We created and expanded wonderful organizations and we know the benefit of short-term, strategic interventions — especially those that combine strategy with hands-on, tactical help — and we believe in the passion and the promise of the nonprofit sector.
