Compass On Demand Consulting & Thought Partner Program

Brief Description: 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Compass developed new programs to deliver short-term pro bono services focused on the immediate needs of nonprofits by providing business professionals with an opportunity to support them.

On Demand Consulting
On Demand Projects address a single issue with projects for up to eight weeks. Compass connects nonprofits to a business professional with the expertise to quickly understand and address an immediate challenge with tailored recommendations. Volunteer consultants are not expected to support implementation, although many continue to work with their client in a personal capacity after an engagement concludes.

Thought Partners
Compass connects seasoned business professionals with nonprofit leaders facing decisions regarding programming, finances, strategy, governance, and more. In a confidential setting, Thought Partners provide a trusted ear for scenario planning, courses of action, and may also facilitate difficult conversations among board, staff, and leadership. Depending on a client’s needs, a Thought Partner may offer several informal calls over eight weeks, or schedule formal check-ins with an agenda and resources.
