“As a start-up organization, we knew that our strategic plan would need to include a strong focus on financial sustainability, and we selected Capacity Partners because of Mary Robinson’s broad and deep experience in both strategy and fund development. Mary’s brilliant guidance carried us to an unexpected — and exciting — outcome. We now have a very clear statement of where we are headed.”
