Organization development

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.



Strategy
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.

Implementation
Transition assistance/bridge support

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.

Board and staff training

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

Public relations, marketing and communications

Our team of expert and award-winning writers crafts powerful communications materials — from web copy to annual reports, brochures, case statements and more.
