Let’s Talk About It!


Creative Edge Consulting supports non-profit organizations throughout the repeating life/growth cycle—from infancy to complete reinvention. As you may have noticed from our website, services reflect three key areas of non-profit functioning and health:




While many non-profit efforts seem linear in nature (and sometimes are for a time), cycles of invention, design or redesign, and strategic shifts never stop… no matter how long your organization has existed. For this reason, CEC services are highly interconnected. Targeted approaches and focus vary in response to a non-profit’s unique circumstances, but most organizations engage in all activities reflected in our category breakdowns throughout their life spans. Or, at least they should. Find out more by visiting our individual information pages for each key service area (service menu to the right) and viewing our full services list at the bottom of this page.

“After you've done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully.

After five years, look at it with suspicion. And, after ten years,

throw it away and start all over.”
