• Not-For-Profit & Education

    Practical advice to help organizations succeed in a highly competitive environment.

Helping organizations build effective strategies for success with limited resources.

Today’s educational institutions and not-for-profit and healthcare organizations face challenges in meeting their primary goals and objectives, with limited resources and complex regulatory requirements. Put simply, service demands continue to grow while access to funding diminishes. This sector, which remains critical for communities across Canada, has not escaped the pressure to be innovative in both fundraising and marketing initiatives.

  • Governance and best practices
  • Regulatory compliance

  • Financial modelling and funding streams
  • Risk management strategies
  • Internal financial reporting
