Philanthroforce and Consultants for Good are joining forces!
Over the last two years, Consultants for Good (C4G) has partnered with Philanthroforce, an organization that matches the right consultant with the right nonprofit and hosts the world’s largest nonprofit consultant directory.
Like C4G, Philanthroforce supports nonprofit consultants to stay up-to-date on trends, find new clients, and collaborate with other consultants. To further our (and your!) shared goals of a more connected nonprofit sector, and in alignment with C4G’s already planned membership launch, we are excited to announce that C4G and Philanthroforce are merging!
In November 2023, operations will transition from Philanthroforce to the Consultants for Good umbrella, and we are lucky enough to have the advisory support of Philanthroforce founders Sean Hale and Sean Ramsey for this transition.
Both communities are proud that around 40% of their consultant members are diversely owned and operated. We are excited to continue deepening diversity, equity, and inclusion practices in C4G, and to further support increased diversity amongst nonprofit consultants.
C4G is committed to supporting all of our current members and welcoming our new members from Philanthroforce into the Consultants for Good Community.
By becoming an ever-larger directory of nonprofit consultants, and by aggregating and growing our capacity-building resources, this partnership will make it easier for consultants to choose where to spend their professional development dollars, time, and energy. Nonprofits and mission-driven organizations are even more likely to find a specialist who is an exquisite match for their needs: not just a strategic planner, for example, but also someone with deep experience with educational organizations and who is bilingual in the language of the community they work in.
