Our Services

We customize solutions, calling upon rich experience and using a deep toolbox, including workshops, activities, resources, and templates, to address each organization’s needs.

  • Initiatives and push projects – Contact us to learn more about how our practitioners can help you get to the other side of big challenges.  From travel systems to People Operations, orientation and onboarding to Finance and Administration, tech adoption to strategy implementation, fundraising capacity to management development, and more, we can help.  With fluency in every aspect of nonprofit operations and program delivery, we bring unparalleled nonprofit experience to all of our engagements.
  • Coaching and organizational learning – We help teams and individuals problem-solve and develop sustainable solutions within the demands of the day-to-day.  We coach, advise, and inspire to develop leaders at every level and in every department to steward and ready the enterprise for the needs of both today and the complex, changing future.
  • Evaluation and objective-setting – There are many ways we can help get answers, show results, and inclusively pull together next steps for enterprise matters.  Whether using Trellis Partners’ own tools, including the Organizational Resilience Questionnaire (ORQ) and the customizable, multi-point Infrastructure Checklist (InfraQ), or working with prior data sets, we can help make a data-informed action plan.

We work with you to identify strengths and challenges relative to your desired future as an organization. Will current organizational practices get you where you want to go? Will current practices keep your organization strong, scalable, ready, and resilient? How do current organizational practices impact the safety, equity, and inclusion of the workforce?

Contact us about the Term Executive model, where a change-leader-in-residence joins your nonprofit team for up to two years to drive the enterprise-level systems improvements you need for next-level impact.

We would love to talk with you about your organization’s goals and needs.

What Our Clients Have to Say

“Anna was focused on not just whether or not the trains were running on time, but if we had the right schedule. Her work went beyond dealing with the immediate issue at hand and included exploring if an issue was symptomatic of a system that needed to be improved.”
- Brad B.
“Anna brought things that we never thought of – templates and tools – that we still use today. For example, she shared a template for a meeting structure that we still use. These tools seem little, but they have a huge impact.”
- Julie D.
“Anna is not afraid to grapple with difficulty, be wrong, or change her mind. She’s open to being influenced by others. Good leaders are willing to be changed by new information.”
- Liesl S.
“Anna has good sense of organizations, what they are about, what their cultures are like. She can be decisive. Yet, rather than making a lot of changes that may or may not have stuck, she took the time to make sure the actions she took synced with the organization.”
- Winnie S.
“Anna is more than capable. From the beginning, I was amazed that she could become an integral part of the management team so quickly and steady the organization through a tumultuous time.”
- David L.
