On Demand Program Information

ON DEMAND PROGRAM: Compass offers short-term (eight weeks) pro bono services focused on nonprofits’ immediate needs and connects business professionals to support them. The On Demand Program has two options, Consulting Projects or Thought Partners.

On Demand - Consulting Projects
Within 8 weeks, On Demand Consulting Projects address a single issue. Compass connects a nonprofit to a business professional with the skills and experience to quickly understand and address an immediate challenge with tailored recommendations. Volunteer consultants do strategic work (not tactical work) and are not expected to support implementation, although many do continue to work with their client in a personal capacity after an engagement concludes.

—Available for 2-4 hours/week for up to 8 weeks

On Demand - Thought Partners
On Demand Thought Partners are seasoned business professionals who Compass connects with nonprofit leaders. Within 8 weeks, in a confidential setting, Thought Partners provide a trusted ear for scenario planning, courses of action, or facilitation of conversations among board, staff, and leadership. Depending on a client’s needs, a Thought Partner may offer several informal calls or schedule formal, agenda-driven check-ins.

Thought Partner Profile:
—10+ years of consulting, business, nonprofit, or executive-level experience

—Available to the client for 1-2 hours/week for up to 8 weeks
