Non-Profit Consulting

A more effective, adaptive and financially sustainable development and aid organisation delivers better results.




AREAS OF EXPERTISE



We assist our clients to design successful proposals, develop sustainable funding strategies and manage risk. Our intimate knowledge of donor preferences and our unique management approach sets us apart.

Our evaluators have proven expertise and can start working quickly, with minimal bureaucratic hassle. We manage the entire evaluation process and deliver accurate and comprehensive evaluation results. In addition, we do research – free of charge – to help our partners make use of the wider field of existing knowledge. This connects evaluation results to a wider understanding of what works in development, turning evaluation data into actionable knowledge.

We help NGOs and authorities adapt to change and unlock potential. Our exclusive focus on the development and aid sector and our unique, participatory advisory approach ensures success.







HOW WE DO IT



PROPOSAL WRITING &
FUNDING

Proposal development is one of our key areas of expertise. Deep knowledge of donor’s formal policies and informal preference as well as a good network of direct contacts allow us to write proposals that win.

Our institutional funding experts assist NGOs worldwide to form consortia, develop funding strategies, pre-position themselves and write convincing proposals. We have particular expertise in respect to EC, DFID, USAID, GIZ, World Bank and several large foundations. Our expertise includes Payment by Results contracting, project risk identification and development of new project processes and procedures to ensure that your organisation has the tools to deliver the project.

Our clients also obtain strategic funding advice from our dedicated consultant team, available at short notice worldwide.

Evaluation and Research

[huge_it_videogallery id="4"]

Evaluation is a critical part of our work. Our evaluators have strong technical expertise in evaluation and ‘on the ground’ experience. This means they know how to use evaluation tools in practical ways and produce actionable results for our partners.

We manage the entire evaluation process by: developing robust evaluation tools, setting clear timetables, and delivering comprehensive evaluation reports. We produce recommendations from our evaluations that are accurate, practical, and concrete. We also provide our clients with insights from our research within the evaluation field at no additional cost and disseminate these insights in free seminars at a time and place convenient to our partners.

Our clients can obtain updates about our work 24/7 through our online project management tool. That means that, wherever you are based, you can see what we do, anytime, anywhere.

Our Evaluation and Research team is able to deploy evaluators within a few days to almost anywhere globally. Please contact us to find out more about how we can work together!

STRATEGY & CHANGE MANAGEMENT

The development and humanitarian aid sector is changing dramatically at a rapid pace. New funding models, unparalleled demand for assistance and the blurring of lines between non-profit, govenmental and the private sector are just a few change trends.

We help our clients identify, plan and adapt to new realities. Working closely together, we build stronger NGOs and more efficient government authorities. We have helped restructure international and regional NGOs and introduced streamlined work processes in local and national authorities.

As in all our work, we do so through a combination of technical expertise and local insight. We continuously measure and evaluate our impact, demonstrating better value for money well before the project completes.
