Consultant Collaborative

PANO’s consulting services support nonprofits as they address challenges, build effectiveness, and move their organizations to the next level.

PANO’s Consultant Collaborative connects organizations seeking support with vetted and experienced professional consultants who come together to provide team-based solutions. From board retreat facilitation to strategic planning to merger assistance, this team brings a wide variety of experience. When you work with one consultant, you get access to the collective wisdom of the group. When possible, we connect you with a team of consultants who bring a rich mix of know-how to your organization. Some consultants in the Consultant Collaborative are also Standards Consultants (more about this group below).

Standards for Excellence Consultants

The Standards for Excellence PA Licensed Consultant Program is a professional development initiative that gives consultants the knowledge, skills, and tools of PANO’s Standards for Excellence program. The training required to become a Standards Consultant provides facilitation and training skills development and empowers consultants working with organizations seeking to implement the Standards. If your organization wants to conduct self-assessments, develop policies, and/or become Standards accredited, a licensed Standards Consultant can help. Learn more.



Our consultants are rigorously vetted and share a vision-based, community-focused, client-centered approach to every project. Each consultant brings unique experience and specialization to the group, ensuring a diverse and innovative approach to each project.

Stronger Together

We determine which consultant best fits your project based on organizational needs, required skills, desired outcomes, organizational culture, and geographic region. When you work with the Consultant Collaborative, you have access the collective wisdom of the group—a team approach that leverages the variety of experience and expertise in a one-stop shop.

Meet You Where You Are

The Consultant Collaborative walks alongside organizations rather than making “the hard sell," meeting you where you are.
