We’ve Worked With


Decades of Combined Experience


Growth and Transformation

Your work is amazing.

Let’s be honest. Sometimes nonprofit organizations can be…well, disorganized.

Staff and volunteers expect something better or different than their corporate experiences. Participants reach out to you for help. Passion is often in excess. Lots of people want to help, but not everyone shows up to lead when you need it. With too many cooks in the kitchen, or too many cooks on vacation, strategy and organization can become distorted or altogether absent, making execution seem almost impossible.

We can fix that.

At Raise the Bar, we help align your organization behind a common vision, strategies and new leadership for a healthier workplace and greater impact on your services and community.

If your organization is working toward launching new programs, raising more money, expanding your mission, or simply trying to Raise The Bar – our team can help you reach new heights. We dig deep – getting to the core of your challenges – and aim high in moving your team to a more healthy, functional, and contemporary workplace, so you can better serve your people and mission. We assess your organization’s leadership,  lifecycle, and vision for the future, and compare it to your current operations. We help you put plans in place for getting to where you want to be. And, if you need it, we join you in transforming core areas of leadership, operations, and fundraising. We employ lean strategies and strive for quick results that serve as a foundation for future growth and success for years to come.

Impact, Amplified.
