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.

C&D helped us plan and facilitated a wonderfully effective day-long board retreat. Both new and veteran board members were fully engaged and we concluded the day with a revised board structure, clearly articulated committee charters and committee assignments. We couldn’t have done this without Susan and Amy’s guidance and wisdom.
