Make the most impact
Your passion for your mission—and the communities you serve—is limitless. But that’s not the case with time, money, and people.
At Eagle Hill, our services in strategy & performance, talent, and change are customized to help you realize the full potential of your people and your resources.

Engage employees from recruiting to onboarding, and make sure you have the right people with the right skills to serve your communities.
And take a fresh approach to change management, so your organization can seize transformation as an opportunity to further your mission.
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!”
