A global challenge for Non-Profit organisations are two-fold:

1 Developing an internal Strategy and associated processes that clearly define the Purpose and underline the Theory of Change for the Beneficiaries and report back to the Funders.

2 The ability to generate adequate unrestricted funding to ensure sustainability and longevity through investment in strategic initiatives, building reserves and covering core costs.

How does your organisation measure up on these?

At EM Solutions we engage with your current plans and thinking, challenge your assumptions, unlock your creativity and clarify your strategy to ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of your theory of change, project implementation strategy, income generation strategy and organisational structure.

Our clients are non-profit organisations who have annual budgets of at least $ 300 000 with a proven record of effective project implementation and solid management structures.

We offer a free NPO assessment that will give you a strategic sustainability score rating. This is then used as an entry point into one of our service offerings that will address the identified gaps and improve your overall score rating. To access this assessment, fill in the form on this page.
