Foundations

Strategizing, collaborating, and learning for lasting change

Foundations have a powerful role to play in today’s complex world. With their resources, networks, and knowledge, they advance change through grant dollars, shared learning, building capacity, and more. Foundations achieve the greatest impact when they partner with others, using a range of tools.

We work with foundations of all shapes and sizes—private, family, community, and corporate—on the local, regional, national, and global levels. As former foundation presidents, directors, and program officers, we bring practical knowledge to engagements spanning strategy development, capacity building, evaluation and learning, funder collaboration, and foundation management.

Our partnership approach can help you:

  • Develop strategy aligned with your mission, vision, values, goals, and resources.
  • Engage and learn from diverse stakeholders, including those closest to the problem you’re working to solve.
  • Understand your funding landscape by identifying opportunities and challenges.
  • Integrate equity practices throughout your work to build lasting movements for change.
  • Develop transparent and productive relationships with your grantees.
  • Evaluate efforts so that learning informs your work and that of the field.
  • Build collaborative partnerships with funder peers to maximize impact.
“It’s clear when you work with TCC Group that they are not afraid to speak truth to power. They’re not just going to feed back what you want to hear, which is what many of the management consulting firms do. You get real honest feedback – the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Nancy MacPherson, Former Managing Director, Evaluation, The Rockefeller Foundation (2008-17 tenure | Quoted on 6.27.18)

“In order to take our work to the next level, we wanted to create connectivity among sectors including housing, education, health, human services, culture, and arts. TCC Group’s ability to bring people from different sectors and find commonality in what they do is a real talent.”

Ron Dendas, Program Officer, The Dorothy Rider Pool Health Care Trust and The Rider-Pool Foundation

“TCC Group has been our partner in both thought and action…Our work involves organizations whose strategies, orientations, and leadership may change over time. TCC has always been willing to reexamine and refine its efforts to ensure that each organization’s needs are met.”

Rev. Starsky D. Wilson, President and CEO, Deaconess Foundation
