Trusted Collaborators

Nonprofit management is a complex system, and successful fundraising is just one piece of the puzzle. When circumstances call for it, Thread is proud to strategically collaborate with companies whose work complements ours to provide a more comprehensive service to our nonprofit partners.


Fundraising and organizational strategy go hand in hand. A strong strategic plan needs funding to move forward, and funders are more likely to support organizations with a clear, strategic direction. Thread is proud to partner with Third Plateau for strategic planning, program design, board strengthening and metrics/evaluation work to complement our development work.
