Your organization is one-of-a-kind.
Its impact and results, mission and message, inner culture and stakeholders together form a unique ensemble. We celebrate this, and we use this distinctiveness to bring an innovative, individualized process to each of our client’s capacity-building needs. From community colleges to land trusts to advocacy organizations to community health centers, our range of nonprofit organizations served has allowed us to gain valuable insight and experience. We measure our success by their success and impact, and we welcome you to engage our innovative approach so that you, too, can tap into the potential you never realized you had.
To gain a glimpse inside our innovative work, read the stories below of how we meet clients “where they are” and then help reposition them to build the capacity to fulfill their mission.
Cathedral Square Development Corporation
Revitalizing downtown neighborhoods takes vision and it takes collaboration. Nowhere is this more evident than in the heart of downtown Syracuse
Crandall Public Library
With no significant previous base of capital philanthropy, library users from diverse regional communities, and a recently defeated construction bond referendum, Crandall Public Library faced its $18.75 million renovation project with some serious obstacles to overcome.
NY-NJ Trail Conference
For nearly a century, the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has been at the forefront of conservation efforts in the Northeast — creating and maintaining over 1,800 miles of public nature trails that stretch from northern New Jersey to the Hudson River Valley of New York.
For 66 years, Utica College has earned its reputation as one of the top-ranking comprehensive colleges in the north.
As this reputation solidifies, there are still many challenges confronting the college—and all colleges—in coming decades. That includes rising numbers of students seeking financial aid, increased globalization, competition from online education, and needed investments in the latest technology.
