Assessment

Armstrong McGuire’s team is well versed in the best practices associated with nonprofit management, governance, operations, marketing, and resource development. We understand that each nonprofit, foundation, school, or church is unique, with its own culture, and that what works for one organization may not be effective for another. Every engagement with a new client starts with an assessment of their present condition – strengths, challenges, opportunities, and threats – so that our strategies and solutions match the realities your organization faces.

The depth of our discovery work depends on our client’s circumstances.  We work with the management team to retrieve and analyze relevant data and materials designed to help us understand our client’s organizational structure, programs, finances, and relationships.  We then conduct interviews, surveys, and focus groups with staff, board members, clients, donors, and others to understand the perceived value of the organization to those most affected by its mission.
