“Somewhere in the United States, no matter what the problem, some nonprofit organization is solving it.”(Peter F. Drucker)

Expertise

CLASS’s holistic approach ensures recommending and/or providing complete solutions to the Nonprofits (NPOs), designed around their needs The focus on providing complete and holistic solutions ensures that the NPOs do not have to expend their scarce internal managerial bandwidth in searching for solutions, which may not even be compatible with their needs Therefore when an NPO approaches us we don’t tell them what service we can offer, instead we try to understand their managerial need and try to solve the same and interim of this process we offer multiple solutions, which can range from a marketing need to a human resources management

CLASS believes that any solution that is provided to NPOs must be targeted towards their pain areas – invariably stemming from the lack of management expertise – and hence, cannot be offered as “a “canned”” solution. The solution must be tailored to the problem faced by the NPO and that the skills required, be it IT, finance, marketing or HR, must be integrated to build and deliver a coherent overall solution. The underlying principles all CLASS teams will adhere to while executing any project are:

  1. Provide a tangible benefit to the client

  2. Deliver assistance in a timely manner

  3. Minimize the amount of financial resources required from clients.
