Thurlow/Associates' strengths-based organization development services are designed to meet nonprofits where they are — and support them in building the competencies they need to achieve lasting impact. From strategy to implementation to evaluation, we help clients succeed.
- Strategic planning
Using best-practice tools including the Core Capacity Assessment Tool (CCAT), we help client organizations evaluate their strengths and challenges and develop robust, multifaceted strategic plans, focused on achieving measurable, mission-driven results.
- Marketing and communications planning
We help clients refine their brand and upgrade their messaging. Guided by best practices in the field, we help develop marketing and communication plans designed to maximize engagement — among both internal and external stakeholders.
- Program design and evaluation
Collaborating closely with internal staff, and utilizing trademarked tools including our Budget-driven Program Design™, we help clients develop best-practice programs and meaningful evaluation methodologies.

We provide critical assistance for organizations experiencing transition among their fund development staff or executive leadership. Our anything-it-takes approach — along with the important institutional knowledge we bring to long-term clients — helps minimize the impact of such transitions.

By identifying board and staff training needs and developing customized, strengths-based educational programs, we help clients build competencies for long-term success.
