SPARK PROGRAM: Accelerator

“I'm going to be very sad when our sessions end. I have learned so much and it has been fantastic to have the support and guidance and direction.”

Theresa / Executive Director, BPCC





Ask yourself: Am I satisfied with how things are working today? If we just keep going and work harder, will we get to where we want to be? Are my challenges getting any easier to untangle?


Capacity Project: Fundraising Strategy

“I love working with you guys. I can’t imagine how I would have gotten this done without you.”

— Dina / CEO, Healthy Humor



Our Work Is All About You

We do all our work with your organization’s purpose as the pillar of every project so we can help propel you forward the right way, not simply our way.

Unlike others, we don’t try to fit you to our system, we designed a system that lets our team adjust our approach to fit you.


Mission First - It’s all about the mission. We do all our work with an organization’s mission as the centering force so we can help propel them forward the right way not simply our way.

Ask and Listen - We are learners. It’s the first way we think about the world. And it’s the first thing we do in every project. Good questions yield faster breakthrough.

Transparency - We couldn’t help anyone if we weren’t willing to tell them the truth and nothing but truth.

Flexibility - With the pace of change all around us, it’s essential to be agile and flexible as inevitable shifts happen. So we never take a rigid approach to our work.

Fun - We genuinely love helping. We started this organization because it’s fun to do great work for great organizations.
