Expertise

JVA’s comprehensive, integrated service approach means that you don’t have to spend your time figuring out how to find and coordinate different consultants. We do that for you through our in-house team of 20 experts, who can ensure you get what you need in any of the following areas:

  • Community assessments and market research
  • Community engagement
  • Communications audits, training and consulting
  • Strategic and business planning
  • Board and staff development and training
  • Facilitating community and collaborative meetings
  • Financing your organization and programs, including: helping you put together a financing plan, grant writing and social enterprise development
  • Recruiting the right board, staff and interns that will help take your organization to the next level
  • Research and program evaluation

If you’re a funder, we can help you think through your next initiative and build the capacity of your grantees to meet your desired outcomes.

Our approaches are informed by best practices and over a quarter of a century of work with nonprofits, government agencies, foundations and socially-responsible businesses, and they are constantly innovated by JVA’s next generation team of researchers and specialists who bring new thinking, fresh ideas and research-informed practice to our work.
