Nonprofits

Why Innolect

The nonprofit industry has experienced many dramatic shifts including a rise in the number of new nonprofits forming, increased scrutiny and accountability, decreased government funding, and increased competition for fundraising dollars. With heightened client and stakeholder expectations, nonprofits are facing a sea of change in the competitive landscape.

As a result, leaders in the nonprofit community have to think more strategically about how they accomplish their missions and achieve their business objectives as efficient, results-driven organizations. Innolect offers the experience, expertise and heart to help nonprofits manage and navigate the ever-changing FUCA environment.

Nonprofit Expertise

Innolect consultants have been transformational change partners to some of America’s most recognized nonprofits, as well as numerous local and regionally based organizations. Innolect has a strong commitment to help CBOs build leadership capacity and enhance organizational effectiveness. We recognize that the most valuable resources for nonprofits are their staff and volunteers and that being outcome focused is imperative in today’s competitive funding arena.

Innolect consultants have extensive experience partnering with CBOs to assist with leadership and organizational development needs. Most Innolect consultants with nonprofit experience have advanced degrees and certifications in organizational design, development and behavior; business and general management; communication, psychology and related fields. Innolect consultant team members have been employed in CEO and other staff positions of nonprofits, and most have served on boards and committees.

Innolect’s Commitment to Nonprofits and Bettering the World

In 2007, Innolect introduced its Sustainable Legacies℠ Practice to intentionally link leadership development to volunteerism with the communities in which our clients serve. Innolect offers turn-key programs (workshops and individual coaching) and tools to help nonprofit and community-based organizations expand, enhance, and sustain relationships with strategic corporate partners and increase their impact for giving. Innolect is committed to finding ways to serve and give back to the communities in which we work and live. A percentage of our profits is given to nonprofits that offer thoughtful and intentional approaches to community development. Innolect’s Sustainable Legacies® Award was created to honor an organization that promotes volunteerism and sustainable social responsibility. Our passion is to inspire organizations and volunteers to give back to the communities in which they live and work.
