Management Services

Knowledgeable Staff. Individualized Support.

Our Management Services offer an excellent, cost-saving option for foundations that do not require full-time staff.  We assume responsibility for day-to-day functions, conducting all of the work necessary to support the foundation.  You get the benefit of a knowledgeable staff that provides individualized support while sharing the back-office costs with other clients.  We make certain that each of our foundation clients maintains its own identity. If we do our jobs well, the public will not be aware that we work for anyone else but you.  We also ensure that individual clients have access to dedicated staff at any time by phone, in person, or online.  By significantly decreasing management and overhead costs, directors or trustees are free to focus on the work that is the most meaningful to them while freeing up more funds to support what matters most - their grantees.
