CONSULTING

Our team of consultants serve as trusted advisors, and customize each project to help you meet your goals. As a nonprofit, we know the unique challenges our community faces, and how to best address them.

Strengthening Our Community’s Nonprofits

Since 2001, Mission Capital has provided nonprofit consulting services to organizations throughout Central Texas. As a nonprofit, we know the unique challenges our community faces, and how to best address them.

Our approach is guided by nationally-recognized best practices and the most up-to-date research available. We meet your nonprofit’s goals by leveraging our resources and network to provide the best insight possible.

A Range of Services to Meet Your Needs

Consulting engagements are designed and priced based on your nonprofit’s current growth opportunities. We provide services in these general areas, but also welcome the opportunity to customize a project for your unique needs.

Strategic Business Planning

Determine your organization’s goals and how to accomplish them.

With us as your guide, together we’ll assess your mission statement, core programs and external identity to map out your organization’s future. You’ll come away with a living document, designed to help you make tough organizational decisions, and effectively share your impact with potential funders and partners.

Earned Revenue

Develop an earned revenue stream to diversify your organization’s funding sources.

Earned revenue presents an opportunity for your nonprofit to capitalize on something you may already do. Together, we’ll identify and validate potential earned-revenue ideas that align with your mission, with the ultimate goal of reducing your reliance on philanthropic support.

Mergers and Strategic Partnerships

Achieve shared goals and extend your impact by exploring partnerships and collaborative approaches.

By participating in meaningful, productive partnerships, you gain more resources to work toward your mission, measure your success, demonstrate results, and improve the lives of those you serve. We consult at all stages of mergers, from the initial conversations of understanding what a merger would look like to facilitating the signing of legal documentation to finalize the process.

Leadership Transitions

Create a comprehensive strategy to seamlessly transition your organization to new leadership.

Together, we’ll think through what kind of nonprofit you want to become, and what leadership will help you get there. Through a comprehensive assessment, we’ll develop an informed job posting, identify where and how to post the position, strategically leverage your networks to reach the ideal candidates, and help you navigate the hiring process to tra
nsition the right leader into your organization
.

Group Facilitation

Address, build and manage the resources you need to ensure organizational stability.

We’ll lead your team through assessments to identify and address internal issues in two categories; Culture and Core Values and the Nonprofit Effectiveness Framework. Based on the assessment results, we’ll facilitate visioning sessions to identify and focus on your nonprofit’s real-time needs. Together, we’ll determine how you can maximize and adapt your existing resources to better power your mission.

Board Governance

Ground your board with a deeper understanding of core roles and responsibilities.

To be a truly healthy and thriving organization, it’s imperative to have a supportive and engaged board invested in the success of the nonprofit. Our proven, but flexible, methodology for board advancement and training is based on best practices in the industry and our experience leading dozens of nonprofit board consulting engagements in the last few years.

Data & Evaluation Capacity Building

Build your data and evaluation skills.

Do you or your team want to dive deeper into using data to help improve your programs and services? From facilitated data parties and meetings to customized trainings, we can help you improve your use of data.

User Centered Insights

Incorporate an iterative, user-centered approach to how you serve. 

Do you have a product, program, or service that you are interested in testing or scaling, but are not sure where to start? Combining approaches from user experience research and developmental program evaluation, we can help you gather the insights you need to improve the experience of your end-users, increase adoption and use rates, and align how your service is designed with your users’ needs.

Data Communication and Insights

Gain the insights you need to improve your programs, services, and reports.

Are you writing a report or using data to explain your theory of change? Are you a data producer or data intermediary? Taking a user-centered approach, we can help you get the insights you need to improve the experience of your end-user.
