About Us

At Capacity Partners, we believe in the power of nonprofits.

Founded by Mary Robinson in 2003, Capacity Partners specializes in strategy and development services for nonprofits. The clients we work with reflect our personal passions and commitment to community, and like the nonprofits we serve, we want to change the world for the better.

Capacity Partners brings an impressive range of nonprofit knowledge and business expertise to every project, and our partner consultants add to the depth and breadth of our capabilities.

We’re here to support and advance your mission and vision.

When you partner with us, you will always get a customized solution, tailored to your needs and goals. Our nonprofit services are always grounded in best practices and industry standards, but we never settle for off-the-shelf answers. Instead, we take the time to get to know you and your organization so that we can deliver creative, innovative solutions that lead to transformative results.

Furthermore, our approach is always based on a holistic view of the organization:  people, systems and processes. Because we consult with nonprofits on a broad range of strategy and development services, we bring an organizational, strategy-driven perspective to every project, large or small.

We help nonprofit leaders like you achieve greater clarity in order to help their organizations become stronger and more sustainable. In addition to working closely with nonprofit executives and board leadership, our hands-on approach often involves developing relationships with established and emerging leaders across your organization — including board members, staff and volunteers — helping teams grow and work together more effectively.

Does your nonprofit need assistance with any aspect of strategy or development?
