Alice Ferguson Foundation – Nonprofit
Unconventional thinking means many things at Eagle Hill. When working with a national museum, we used our unconventional thinking to help them reimagine their business processes. Our goal was to maximize efficiencies and utilize resources to deliver on their mission and make the best use of their donor dollars.”
– Liz Schroeder, Senior Director
Increase in the museum’s internal hiring satisfaction metric
Reduced hiring time by over 50%, from 111 days to 49
Focus on impact with workforce planning

Nonprofit Case Studies
Unconventional consulting leads to unbelievable results for nonprofit organizations

AI-enabled data gathering across 65 countries unlocks compelling improvement possibilities

Helping core values take hold
A large nonprofit saw core values as the key to staying competitive in the future—but the new values weren’t taking hold with employees. We created a plan to bring their desired culture off the pages of HR strategy and into day-to-day work life.
Building a strong relationship for sustainable growth
The Alice Ferguson Foundation needed to create a long-term strategic plan to grow alongside their mission. Our team worked closely with AFF to incorporate a goal-focused plan as well as a new organizational mindset targeted at success.
Standing up a performance management process to develop and recognize employees
An organization was experiencing growing pains, so we conducted our own research in order to understand employee perspectives, from the top down. We clearly defined all roles in the organization to ensure each person felt recognized and valued.

Real nonprofit experience
When it comes to nonprofits, our people get it. They’ve sat on your side of the table and understand what it’s like to pivot your vision or go through cycles of funding. And now, they bring that experience to the table as consultants with diverse backgrounds and expertise.
“While my title said CFO, Senior Director, or Grants Manager during my nonprofit career, my role went far beyond that. I wore multiple hats and juggled a hundred different things at once, which made it hard to see the big picture of the overall mission. Today, I try to provide my clients the kind of perspective, strategy, and analysis that they don’t have the time to develop because they are so busy running the organization. The goal is to help them make better decisions and achieve as much as possible with their limited resources.”
“I’ve seen many sides of the nonprofit world: I was on the Special Olympics global leadership team, an implementing partner for nonprofits with the US Agency for International Development, and a donor and volunteer. I’ve found that nonprofits of every size are most successful when they invest the same resources and attention in their staff, volunteers, and processes as they do programs and service delivery. As a consultant, that experience helps my clients find the right balance so they can further their mission for all their stakeholders!”
