Our Services

West Avenue Associates’ principals and consulting associates bring extraordinary experience and insights from the non-profit and for-profit sectors. We offer an understanding of key issues like fiscal discipline, operational sustainability, planning, and rational, data-based decision making. We apply rigorous analysis to ensure that the decision to commit to a course of action, like a fund-raising campaign for instance, is embraced by staff and volunteer leadership. The competition for the non-profit dollar has never been greater, and only those organizations which take a business-like approach to their mission will succeed.
