CompassPoint intensifies the impact of fellow nonprofit leaders, organizations, and networks as we achieve social equity together. We believe that nonprofit organizations and leaders need relevant support that builds on their strengths, experiences, and achievements and that those individuals and organizations that invest in increasing their leadership and management capacities are better poised to achieve progress.
For over 35 years, CompassPoint has worked to carry out this purpose by guiding nonprofits as they become better managed, more adaptive, and achieve higher impact. With our 24 staff working in San Francisco, the East Bay, Silicon Valley, and beyond, we strengthen today’s leaders, and are helping to grow a healthy pipeline of diverse leaders for the future. We influence the dialogue about policies, emerging practices, and the resources needed for nonprofits to create change. And we convene partners, link fields, and strengthen networks that accomplish more by working together.
We use the following approaches to achieve our community goals: Our integrated practice offers the strongest teaching, coaching, consulting, and peer learning—all grounded in deep nonprofit leadership experience. We partner with leaders, cultivating and supporting them at every level within nonprofit organizations and across the sector. We believe that leaders exist at all levels and can influence an organization or network regardless of title or tenure. And as a multicultural organization, CompassPoint is responsive to the needs of diverse leaders and communities.
