About Us

WHO WE ARE: TDC, founded in 1968, is a nonprofit consulting and research group dedicated to providing the nonprofit sector with the business and management skills critical to operating effectively.

We work with organizations, foundations, and public agencies across the nonprofit sector.

TDC believes that this sector plays a vital role in society, giving tangible support to some of our country’s most cherished ideals and enhancing the quality of our lives.


TDC is highly effective at helping an organization answer fundamental questions about its purpose, programs, and activities. This work inspires managers and trustees to articulate a vision for the organization that positions it for today’s environment. We help craft achievable solutions that respect an organization’s culture and reflect a keen understanding of the constituents the organization aims to serve. Our business solutions are based on an in-depth knowledge of the funding mechanisms and revenue streams that drive the sector, and of the financial structures that nonprofits can most effectively use.

As a result of hundreds of client engagements of this kind, TDC is able to work with public and private funders to illuminate cross-sector issues and shape effective solutions.
