TDC, a nonprofit management consulting and research firm, seeks a consultant to join our team. TDC works exclusively with nonprofit, governmental, educational, and philanthropic organizations, providing them with the business and management tools critical to achieving mission success.
Consultant’s engagements span TDC’s portfolio of work: strategic business planning as well as flexible coaching/scenario-planning engagements with individual organizations; cohort management for major foundations; organizational assessments and evaluations for individual nonprofits as well as their funders; and sector-wide research engagements for foundations and other philanthropic entities.
