Warren Davis started the firm on January 1, 2017 after being in the nonprofit sector for over 20 years in external relations (development, marketing & public relations).  Throughout his career he noticed that smaller to medium-sized nonprofits not only did not have adequate resources within their organizations, but they also did not have a helping hand with professional services. The large consulting firms favored the large clients and their consulting requests were either left unanswered or came in with proposals that were not what they needed or requested, let alone way over their budget.

When he started the firm he set out to balance the need for services. The firm is positioned to work with start-up to medium-sized organizations. In addition, the firm has access to additional expertise for comprehensive non-profit management. We look forward to the possibility of lending a helping hand to your organization.
