|This list is being compiled by Emily Sterling and Olive Grove (www.theolivegrove.com) to help alleviate the challenges of matching nonprofits in need of technical assistance, and those providers who have expertise and capacity to help. |
We are frequently asked to help find and refer consultants and advisors, and we are hoping to make this more efficient and scalable for everyone.
We acknowledge it is imperfect and incomplete, but it is a start and we look forward to evolving it over time if it is valuable. We look forward to hearing how else we can make this endeavor more useful for you - including evolving beyond a basic spreadsheet if there is value and interest. Please send ideas and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no fee to participate as either a consultant or a nonprofit.
This list has just lauched on May 1. Please help us populate and distribute this list by forwarding the Google Form intake link - https://forms.gle/zdWULKq9kvoUx5vs5 - to your trusted consultants, advisors, networks, membership organizations, foundations, and nonprofits. We know there are lots of specialized lists out there of consultants who serve specific mission areas, locations, types of services, etc. We are hoping for an inclusive list that captures those and more.
If you are looking for providers, keep checking back as the list grows. We have been getting multiple listings/day since launched.
