Capacity Building Consultant Databases

View Resource

As part of an exploration on the usefulness of an online capacity building consultant database, OE funded a feasibility study by The Foundation Center.

In their research, The Foundation Center found almost 60 existing nonprofit consultant databases. They collected information on the number of consultants included, types of services offered, whether a consultant was part of an association, the geography served, and unique features of the database. They put all of this information together in this simple spreadsheet, which we are pleased to share with the field.

Know of an additional consultant database? Post the link with a description as a comment, and we will add it to this resource!
