Our Values
We Collaborate

We work with clients, with colleagues, and collectively. Today’s complex problems require working together, as do our clients’ strategic and operational needs.

We Are a Learning Organization

We refine and evolve our work based on data of all kinds, continuously applying and sharing our learnings with the field.

We Hold the Bar High

We strive for the utmost quality in everything we do, setting the standard for client work and applying the norms of collaboration.

We Believe in Diversity

People should be valued for who they are and for their unique skills. Different perspectives enrich our work. Diversity makes us stronger.

We Are Resourceful

We are flexible and adaptive. We immerse ourselves in complex problems, and we seek and apply ideas and solutions, informed by those closest to the issues.

We Embrace the Whole Person

Well-rounded people make the best team members. We meet our clients and colleagues where they are, and we foster a flexible work environment.

Where We Started

TCC Group began in 1980 when three Philadelphians working out of a converted loft founded The Conservation Company.

Facing a major energy crisis—with heating oil prices reaching a historic high—the founders established both a store that retrofitted materials to improve energy efficiency and a consulting firm focused on helping nonprofits deal with rising, complex energy costs. Over time, the work evolved to cover organizational strategy and planning—with a continual expansion of services for nonprofits, foundations, and companies.

Nearly 40 years later, TCC Group is a mission-driven consulting firm based in New York, with an office in Philadelphia and staff and affiliates across the country. We have more than 40 professionals with diverse experience who bring practical wisdom, integrity, and intuition to their work every day, partnering with foundations, nonprofits, companies, and government.

Today, our services are comprehensive, we serve a wide range of clients, and our dynamic, distinct approaches are informed by nearly four decades of experience. Our mission remains rooted in the same vision: an effective social sector, where diverse stakeholders collaborate to solve complex problems.

We provide the strategy, capacity building, initiative design, strategic communication, management, and evaluation to help clients do just that.
