About Us

Who We Are

Since January 2001, Collective Impact has provided capacity building services to help organizations and communities achieve their mission, realize their vision, and thrive!  

Our network of capacity-builders was formed to provide clients with comprehensive services, tools, and resources that strengthen their ability to get things done … and done well. We define capacity building as “strategies or solutions that empower organizations and communities to operate more effectively and efficiently.” 

Collective Impact is not only the name of our consulting firm, but it is also our overall philosophy and approach that we use with all of our clients in every project with which we are involved.  It is our guiding principle that directs how we collectively, with our clients … interact, perform, and succeed.

Our Approach 

Collective Impact uses a strengths-based systems approach to building capacity. Organizations and communities often focus on their problems or needs, but we believe that those we serve have great strengths to build upon and see our role as helping identify and maximize those strengths by using a holistic approach that emphasizes resources and capabilities. This approach is reflected throughout our core values. 

So Why Choose Us?

After over two decades of providing capacity building services to a broad range of clients in diverse settings, we have developed a deep understanding of the unique strengths, challenges, and opportunities they face.  We have a genuine passion in helping organizations and communities make a greater impact, prosper, and thrive!
