Nonprofit Growth Advisors have been catalysts for positive change during a time of leadership transition at PRESENT NOW. Melissa's collaborative approach, coupled with a deep understanding of the nonprofit landscape, has allowed for the development and implementation of tailored strategies that have allowed us to scale and grow our operations according to plan. The impact of the NGA team’s work is evident in all aspects of PRESENT NOW’s operations leading to increased efficiency and expanded programming. Melissa is a wonderful mentor and thought partner who is not only invested in an organization’s success but is also invested in your professional and personal growth.

Nonprofit Growth Advisors gets the job done. My organization, Arts for LA, has collaborated with NGA two times now on two very distinct projects, fundraising, and interim Chief Operations Officer. I've done so because Melissa and her team deliver. They are creative in their solutions, meticulous in their detail management, and trusted partners in the work.

NGA's Founder, Melissa was hired as an Interim Executive Director at Food on Foot, and she steered our ship through some pretty treacherous waters.  We were all impressed and grateful for the breadth of skills she displayed with the staff, the board, our donors, and our clients.  She conducted an organizational analysis that led to a solid restructuring and reduced annual operating expenses.  She deeply cares about helping the population we serve (the unhoused and food insecure of Hollywood) and aside from keeping us steady, she brought new ideas for our programs and is gifted at thinking outside the box.  We’ve just begun our Year-End Appeal, and Melissa has already come up with new perspectives on fundraising that are in keeping with our culture.

Maggie joined the Foundation during a tumultuous time of transition.  The program was in decline with many broken relationships in the community.  Maggie dove in; built a new strategic direction for the program, and engaged a wide variety of community stakeholders and partners.  Her vision and excellent relational and people skills led the way to renewed energy and growth.  Working together, she helped shape the direction of the Western US programs and set the organization on a positive footing.
