Why Hire Cahners & Donahue Associates?

We are different from most consultants you may meet.

  • We have been, and continue to be, non-profit professionals, board members, board chairs, and active volunteers. This gives us a unique perspective, allowing us to understand better the needs of our clients.
  • We take the time to understand your mission, your priorities, and your organization’s culture.
  • We can counsel, guide, and work with you “in the trenches.”
  • We are creative problem solvers, willing to explore and entertain alternative approaches to the challenges and opportunities facing our clients.

We know that one size, one methodology, does not fit all. We customize our approach for each client, combining established best practices with current academic business research and years of hands-on management and consulting experience.

We are happy to work on projects of all sizes.

Amy helped us create a mission statement and strategic plan for our 60+ year old organization. That’s a daunting task. She helped us organize the process into manageable pieces, focus on the important ideas, and create a framework to organize our thoughts. As a result, we were able to reorganize our board structure, align our goals to match our mission, and most importantly, energize our membership. We relied on Amy’s wisdom and experience to help guide us through a complicated and difficult process and successfully create a plan to achieve our goals for the future.
