Established in 2006 as a direct response to the needs of grantmakers who increasingly turn to consultants to support and increase the impact of their work.
NNCG’s mission is to increase the quality, effectiveness and capacity of grantmakers by mobilizing and strengthening the work of knowledgeable, ethical and experienced consultants.
NNCG’s network includes a distinguished membership of philanthropy consultants representing an array of areas of expertise related to grantmakers and their philanthropic missions. It also includes foundation members that have a deep commitment to supporting philanthropy consultants as peers and trusted colleagues in efforts to advance the field. Collectively, our network serves all types and sizes of philanthropy consultants, as well as grantmakers, grantmaker networks and philanthropic families.
