Who We Are:

Sector leading expertise

CWR is a White House award winning consulting firm serving nonprofits and government. Our client list contains some of the highest performing organizations in our sector (including two MacArthur “Genius Grant” winners). The Stanford Social Innovation Review relies on us to provide regular expert advice to its readers. We founded and lead the Capacity Collaborative, a working network of California’s leading foundations and nonprofits dedicated to innovating ways to build fundraising capacity.  

Best practices from the business world

Read our bios and you’ll see a combination of nonprofit expertise with backgrounds in serving businesses like Apple, Mazda and Johnson and Johnson.  We know which best practices translate across sectors… and just as importantly, which do not. We give you the best of both worlds.  

One stop shop

The issues facing nonprofits often cut across multiple areas of expertise. Our team approach ensures that we can meet your needs in an integrated fashion. And we can support you for the long term, from planning all the way to implementation.  


We know you’re in this for something far more valuable than getting rich. So are we. The cause motivation of our team members enables us to charge rates that are significantly below market value.  It’s our mission to bring high level expertise within your reach.

Geographic Reach

We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area with a satellite office in Los Angeles. We’ve also worked for clients across the country and internationally.
