PIvot connects on-the-ground practitioners with national trends in the nonprofit sector.

boardstar was just the beginning.  pivot is the next phase for effective board governance in our region as it:

  • Supports community networks and organizations in their goals by strengthening nonprofit boards and staff leadership, and providing access to resources, increasing their ability to strategically carry out their missions.

  • Fills a gap in the current social sector by convening and applying cohort-based learning and sharing.  In this manner, Pivot acts as a catalyst to more quickly realize community goals.

  • Encourages civic engagement within the corporate community and works with them to connect their employees to nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving our shared community well-being.

  • Connects the local sector to the national conversation and leverages those resources to improve work locally.
