Expertise

JVA’s comprehensive, integrated service approach means you don’t have to spend your time finding and coordinating different consultants. We do that for you, through our in-house team of experts. We can ensure you get what you need in any of our many areas of expertise:

  • Evaluation and Engagement
    Program evaluation (process and outcome evaluation using mixed methods, including surveys, focus groups and interviews), research (literature reviews, landscape scans, experimental design and analysis), data analysis and reporting (dashboards), policy (research, analysis and advocacy) and community engagement (strategy, design and implementation.) 
  • Fundraising
    Fund development planning, capital campaign planning, case for support development and earned income strategies.
  • Grantwriting
    Annual contracts, boilerplate development, foundation and state or federal grants, content reviews, and funding research (local/national and state/federal.)
  • Marketing and Communications
    Social media (plans and start-up), annual reports, direct email letters, strategic communication plans, case for support development, and message testing and development.
  • Planning and Facilitation
    Business planning and modeling, strategic planning, social enterprise consulting, facilitation (meetings, retreats, community conversations), succession planning and change management.
  • Social Enterprise
    Social enterprise navigator consulting series, quick consults and specific resources for nonprofits, foundations, and entrepreneurs and businesses.
  • Staff Development and Recruitment
    Leadership and board development, strengths-based approach, executive search, recruitment and trainings (public and customized.)

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 nearly 30 years of work with nonprofits, government agencies, foundations and socially responsible businesses. And our next-generation team of researchers and specialists keeps our methods up to date by bringing new thinking, fresh ideas and research-informed practice to our work.
