Project Details

What We Need
  • 6-8 coaching sessions with a staff member
  • Actionable steps and advice to address an ongoing managerial issue
  • Assessment of the effectiveness of the Organization's leadership team
Additional Details

We are a small fundraising women's foundation in an area that does not have a lot of big funders but has a decent group of committed but aging donors in Western MA. We have 6 staff though 2 are PT

What We Have In Place
  • I have been very successful in almost 4 years at the fund and will be at the helm for 3 more years. I want to strengthen board, make more equitable HR policies/procedures and figure out how to manage expectations for sustaining our fund or scaling by possibly merging with another fund.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,198 , allowing us to put more money into our community where women and girls are very economically vulnerable due to pre-existing economic conditions and then COVID-19 economic fallout.

Help a very good leader become extraordinary for a small but mighty fund.

Robert was wonderful to work with. He asked provocative questions, had me frame my three biggest issues and gave me opportunities for reflection between meetings.

It was an absolute pleasure working with the leadership of the Women's Fund of Western Massachusetts. This organization is doing fantastic work and I was honored to be able to support their mission. I would welcome the chance to be of service again in the future.
