With more than 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, we bring breadth of knowledge and technical expertise to every consulting engagement, along with empathy and an intuitive understanding of the complex challenges facing executive directors, board chairs, staff and donors.

We can partner directly with nonprofits or partner with foundations to support the nonprofits they fund, maximizing their investments and strengthening their grantees for the long term.

Our Approach

The Stevenson Wallace approach is grounded in empathy, action and clarity, and in the belief that we’re not just leading effective consulting projects, we’re building long-term relationships.

We know that we provide clarity by helping you identify the blurred business concerns that keep you up at night, defining them with laser focus so we can solve them together.

We know that we help you understand your context through research that simultaneously provides actionable insight and increases your stakeholders’ investment in your work by engaging them in your process.

We know that you only have time to solve each problem once, so we go upstream to find root causes and systemic solutions.

And we know that you’re the subject-matter expert in your work, so we practice an aggressive humility that honors your knowledge while pushing your organization to discover, discern and innovate.
