We are nonprofit consultants, academics, funders, and professionals actively strengthening our practices and the field of capacity building.

We believe that quality research and practice need each other; that each lens and pursuit should inform and affect the other. By sharing and synthesizing what we know, we aim to better support and advance positive social change.  We welcome all those who are curious, wish to engage in open dialogue, and collaborate in a knowledge community with diverse perspectives and a common purpose.  Together, we become the forefront of capacity building research and practice—Together, we are the Alliance.  

Exciting News: The Alliance for Nonprofit Management's Governance Affinity Group is engaged in a new research study and is using a survey tool to collect input and answers to these questions to help advance the governance field.  Survey responses also will help inform the creation of their new report, Governance Research to Practice Consultants' Toolkit. Please contribute your thoughts and experience by taking this quick 15-minute survey.
