What We Provide
Clients are provided with detailed and individualized services, with no standard nor “pre-packaged” strategies nor generic recommendations. Our services are as unique as the organizations which we have the privilege to serve.
Reflective of this commitment, Colabella & Associates offers the following
Our approach is completely immersive. Through insightful interviews and a formal session with board members, staff, and key stake-holders, we lay the foundation for organizational goal setting, methods, and assessments.
Leadership Development and Training
Organizations rise or fall reflective of their leadership. With an extensive background as nonprofit executives and advisors, we are familiar and well versed with the challenges facing the multiple levels and layers of complexity related to nonprofit organizations.
The changes we are seeing in society are spiraling at an unprecedented rate. Socio-economic vagaries, pandemic response, health inequity, demographic distributions, sexual/gender identity, and ethnic challenges are but a few of the contributing factors effecting this change.
Colabella & Associates links organizations with forward thinking corporations, individuals, and social impact leaders. With a stellar track record in this area, we’ve helped non-profits gain the capital, insights, and visibility that have enabled them to expand and enrich services and programs for their constituencies.
Effective growth and service delivery rely upon initial and on-going research. Through this process we provide critical and useable information related to corporate, foundation, and individual funders.
Filling executive positions is time consuming and often falls upon board members whose time is limited. Vacancies at these positions sidetrack effective service delivery and becomes more pronounced as these positions are left unfilled.
Capacity Building and Technical Assistance
We also provide capacity building and technical assistance in areas including organizational restructuring, rewriting/updating job descriptions, creating theories of change for key programs, and developing metrics that are important to funders as well as developing cases for support and case studies.

George provided invaluable service to our organization. His disarmingly simple, heartfelt, and pragmatic methods generated a wide range of dialogue and ideas that unified the board and resulted in both a Mission Statement and motivation to achieve these goals. He deeply understands the non-profit space and how it needs to be created and effectively managed.
