ESC Helps Nonprofits Do More

Hundreds of Triangle nonprofits have maximized their effectiveness with the help of ESC’s unique and affordable consulting services. ESC consultants help address organizational challenges and provide custom solutions. We are committed to helping nonprofits succeed, regardless of their ability to pay.

Our Pro Bono Consultants are Experienced Leaders

ESC consultants are primarily former business and nonprofit executives, each with many years of experience. Our volunteer consultants come from a variety of management backgrounds in the for-profit and nonprofit sectors, government and academia.

Our consultants do not charge for their services – our fees cover our nominal administrative costs. Evaluations from our clients show an average 96% satisfaction rate for our consultants’ work.

Leverage the Value of Your Donation to ESC

When you give to ESC, your contribution is magnified many times. Each dollar raised is leveraged through the value of the services donated by ESC consultants. For example, a $1,000 donation is matched by an average of $6,000 in pro bono services. Your contribution has a ripple effect.

We help nonprofits make better use of their people and money so that they can better achieve their missions and improve their communities.

Giving Options

You can donate to our general fund to support ESC’s operational costs, or you can donate an ESC sponsorship. Many Triangle nonprofits cannot afford professional consulting and find even ESC’s nominal fees beyond their reach. Your donations can be used primarily to provide sponsorship funds to subsidize ESC’s fees. Sponsorship funding is critical to supporting the important work of the nonprofits we help.

“ESC is a team of compassionate professionals who have a good knowledge of nonprofit business and what leadership skills it takes to manage and govern successful organizations. ESC is very well managed, and I am confident that ESC will maximize the impact of my gift.”
Pat NathanPat Nathan, Founder, Triangle Dress for Success
“ESC is a group of seasoned, caring professionals who know about nonprofit leadership and care about their communities. Services provided by ESC help develop nonprofit leaders so they can address the challenges facing their constituents from a more strategic perspective. The impact of their expertise is exponential.”
Kathy HigginsKathy Higgins, President, BCBSNC Foundation
“I am a long-term supporter of ESC because I believe this organization can really help nonprofits become stronger and fulfill their missions. ESC brings a wealth of experience in leadership and governance. It is also important for nonprofits to have an outside perspective, but it is difficult in most cases as nonprofit leaders are so busy and yet have so few resources. ESC meets this need.”
