  • Help you think strategically about new directions 
  • Analyze specific fields to determine where your resources will have greatest impact 
  • Develop grantmaking initiatives to maximize your impact 
  • Identify strong and innovative nonprofit organizations 
  • Organize convenings and manage follow-up
