Ascent for Non-Profit

Ascent – for Non-Profit

Ascent was formed as part of The Summit Group to focus solely on consulting for not-for-profits and smaller businesses – providing them with the skill set, mindset, and learnings from our leading private sector clients to help them succeed in expanding their impact and increasing their success.

  • For not-for-profits, we focus on elevating the business and shifting mindsets from donor-based to investment-based.
  • For small businesses we focus on strategic planning and next generation leadership development.
  • For both groups, we offer the highly successful StratOp™planning system and the global standard Leadership Capacity Program™(LCP), and our team is fully certified in both programs.
