How We Work

Our consultants understand every organization is unique and we tailor our approach to the specific needs of your organization. Typically, an ESC financial consulting and sustainability engagement starts with an in depth review of cash flow as well as existing financial systems, policies and procedures, budgets and reports. Our consultants have extensive, hands-on experience applying nonprofit financial management best practices to a variety of challenges.

To keep progress on track, we work closely with you to create a project timeline that assures accountability for all activities. We tightly monitor progress throughout the project life cycle, and report regularly on milestones and results.
