Nonprofit Capacity Resource Guide


About this guide

What follows is a compilation of resources that we have gathered from people at many different wonderful Philadelphia non-profit organizations and foundations. Please know, we have not personally vetted everyone on the list. We only included consultants that have been used by at least one local non-profit. Please do your own due diligence and check with the organizations that are listed as references. This is the first edition of a living document. PLEASE help keep it accurate and up to date. To make any comments or suggestions, request additions, changes, removals or to add references use the link for The Nonprofit Resource Guide Update Sheet, located below. We will be continually updating so please send new information anytime. Thanks to PhillyBOLT, this will be available as an interactive online platform within the year!!

Tia Burroughs of TBC Consulting, L.L.C. and Jordan Muse (PKFF Philanthropic Partnerships Coordinator) did a great job of helping to organize my endless scraps of paper. Thanks to many of you for your input about your experiences with different resources and consultants. I hope this document will help you to connect with some excellent consultants that can work alongside you as you deepen your impact in the Philadelphia region.
