Consulting & Coaching

Because they steer social impact businesses, nonprofit boards and leaders are balancing the delivery of their mission with the realities of operations and costs.

Regardless of the challenge you’re facing, DANA’s experienced professional consultants can guide you with a range of business and organizational topics.

Engagements can range from a three-hour retreat to full-year coaching support. DANA sets its consulting rates at below-market prices, which are then discounted for DANA members based on their organizational budget. DANA’s Alliance Partners program enables us to receive grants to help further reduce the fees.
