About
THRIVE IMPACT

Our Mission is to Solve 
Nonprofit Leader Burnout

Burnout is the enemy of creating positive change. Most nonprofit leaders know what it feels like to be alone and isolated. This is why we are rooted in community, are driven by inclusion, and co-create everything we do. When nonprofit leaders thrive, they create the impact our communities need.

REVENUE FROM NEW STRATEGIES

We know the struggles because we’ve had them too.

That’s why Thrive Impact’s approach is built on the simple fact that revenue issues is a lagging indicator of deeper problems. If you’re having a hard time raising money or just keep hitting a plateau in your revenue, it is time for a more modern approach, not just a new fundraising deck.

With our experience of leading and turning around everything from startup nonprofits to $650M+ organizations, we’ll help you figure out whatever’s getting in the way of your bottom line. You’ll leave our workshops knowing where you’re heading, what you need to do to get there and, most importantly, you won’t be doing it alone.
