Peer Networking that Expands Your Business

Our consultant partners are a critical part of the nonprofit infrastructure. They offer skilled expertise when nonprofits need it most, supporting strategic planning, operations, project management, capital campaigns, and so much more.

Together SC aims to create value for both our consultant partners and our nonprofit members by building an engaged network of businesses working closely with South Carolina's nonprofit organizations. 

Purpose

  1. Offer member consultants a peer network, led by their peers that encourages their collaboration and professional development;
  2. Help Together SC:
    • Better market consultants, showcasing their subject matter expertise
    • Connect nonprofit members with potential consultants
    • Engage member consultants in leading Together SC's peer networks, learning cohorts and training, assuring opportunity for all Consultant Collaborative members

What's new about all of this:

  • The Consultant Collaborative focuses on partners proving direct consulting services to nonprofits. A new Corporate Allies program will aim to meet the needs of corporate business partners who are more engaged in philanthropy .
  • We will integrate Consulting Collaborative members into Together SC's programmatic work in a more deliberate and transparent manner.
  • Together SC will be much more deliberate about connecting members and promoting the opportunity to work with consultants,

Participation

  • The Consultant Collaborative is a membership program for entrepreneurs and firms who provide services primarily to nonprofit organizations. 
  • See who's engaged and find professionals with whom to work:
