Seeds for Change was founded on a set of values that continue to guide our work and collaborative relationships with our non-profit partners. We believe these are key differentiators from other consulting firms in the social sector service space:
- We approach each project out of a lens of successful experience but with renewed focus on the unique qualities of the organization, its staff and board, and the project at hand. Thus, we bring to life the concept of “customization” in our work. We do not use templates, nor a set way a project must be done. Our ability to listen, learn, advise and brainstorm makes each project an exciting, well executed collaboration, ripe for organizational success.
- Our team consists of a diverse group of well educated, highly professional community members dedicated to the improvement of our Central Texas community. We love our city and our state, and truly enjoy working with non-profit colleagues and board leadership to advance their charitable missions.
- Furthermore, our team is made up of independent contractors. This configuration allows each team member the flexibility to dedicate time and energy to individual passions and pursuits. We believe this enriches each member’s offerings to our team and the non-profit clients we serve. Several members recently have served (or are currently serving) in leadership positions on boards, commissions and committees, in addition to working as employees of local agencies. These internal points of view uniquely and positively inform our work as professional consultants in the non-profit realm.
- Finally, all of our work is done by the professional team members of Seeds for Change and our professional subcontractors (i.e., graphic designers). We do not have administrative staff, college interns or “less than” professional people executing work in a back office. In fact, there is no back office. In order to keep client costs as low as possible, we do not have a physical office and have very little administrative overhead. Thus, when you pay a consulting fee to Seeds for Change, you are only paying for the professionals on your project team.
