We’re strategic advisors on a mission to help nonprofits move mountains.
Prosper Strategies exists to help you make your vision a reality.
Your organization has a meaningful mission. You’re working to improve literacy, end hunger, fight for social justice, or simply make the world a better place. But to make that mission a reality, you need to find your focus, build sound strategies, master marketing and fundraising, get everyone on your team moving forward in the same direction, measure the results of your work, and optimize your efforts according to what you learn.
Enter: Prosper Strategies.
Prosper Strategies is a nonprofit consulting firm on a mission to build a more effective and impactful social sector.
The Prosper Strategies Advisory Board
How We're Different
Other consulting firms like to spend six months building a strategic plan, shake up your organization, and then leave you to deal with the aftermath. Not Prosper Strategies.
We’ve developed our Nonprofit Impact System™ as a response to this irresponsible business practice that leaves nonprofits spending valuable funds on strategic work they’ll never actually implement. We work with nonprofits across the four areas they need to master to be effective and impactful: Focus, Strategy, People, and Progress. Of these, the area that most consulting firms are afraid to touch is progress, and this is where we thrive.
For us, Progress means helping you put the systems and processes in place that ensure everyone on your team is moving your organization’s goals forward every single day. It also means holding your organization accountable to the people and communities you serve, and developing a shared Nonprofit Impact Dashboard™ through which you will measure and share the results of your work in real time.
Prosper Strategies is also differentiated by our marketing and communications background. We started as a nonprofit marketing and communications firm, and those roots still run deep. We believe this is important, because even the smartest strategies will fail if you can’t reach and engage your stakeholders in your work.
Prosper Gives Back
We’re a small company, but there is nothing that drives us more than our desire to give back and use our business as a force for good. That’s why we donate over 350 hours of time each year to organizations we care about through pro bono work, board involvement and Prosper Volunteer Days, where our team volunteers in the community together.
Our team has selected Lakeview Pantry and Open Books as our two partners for Prosper Volunteer Days, so you might see us out in the community stocking pantry shelves and helping kids develop reading and creative writing skills (say hi!). In summer 2020, we plan to transition our company-sponsored volunteering to a partnership with My Block, My Hood, My City. Stay tuned for more details.
