Strategy, development & support for coalitions, associations, organizations and initiatives
Woollard Nichols & Associates works with non-profit executive directors, government administrators, and other social sector leaders who are challenged with tackling complex issues. We’ve been particularly successful with supporting collaborative initiatives, coalitions and boards to articulate their vision and take concrete action steps to achieve their goals. We aim to be a trusted sounding board for leaders and groups facing tough issues, and to bring a fresh perspective to organizational planning and decision making.
Our primary focus is in the social sector. We define the social sector as non-profit, public and private sector initiatives that build community well-being and help people reach their full potential. This often includes working with organizations and individuals focusing on health and human services, housing and community development, education, workforce development, and behavioral health.
We specialize in three areas:

- Strategic, collective decision making and planning

- People-focused community assessments
- Executive decision making and coaching
- Community board development and governance
Building Capacity and Resources

- Development strategy

WNA contracts on an hourly and per-project basis. Our hourly rate is $125/hour for management and strategic consulting and $40/hour for administrative support.
