We are passionate about nonprofits.
They embody our best spirit and values, and infuse our communities with far-reaching benefits. They heal, educate, shelter, protect, and nurture our humanity. And nothing drives us more at Innovative Resources Group than building on this power to affect change, improve lives, and influence public policy.
We're celebrating 22 years of strengthening a wide range of nonprofit organizations, enhancing their ability to achieve vital missions and to sustain this achievement over time. We call this “capacity building,” and never in history has the need for nonprofit capacity building and organizational effectiveness been more essential than right now.
Even in a period of economic stress, people still give. According to Giving USA, total estimated charitable giving rose 3.5 percent last year to $316.23 billion. We believe this is because nonprofits are the face of our community, champions of the common good. Donors and volunteers—people—want to make a difference. WE DO TOO.
Let us help you tap the potential you never realized you have.
