Helping Charities to Prosper
Collective Intelligence: groups of individuals who do things together, who address new or trying situations using their shared intelligence, who adapt to a changing environment by applying their combined knowledge.
We prefer to work with small-to-medium sized non-profits that are addressing the important, urgent, and socially relevant issues of our time. By focusing on a cluster of agencies that work to address interrelated social issues, we create extra value and synergy of effort for our clients. Collective Intelligence Consulting (CIC) is a knowledge expert for fundraising in these areas.
Charities exist to fulfill a defined purpose. Over time, changes in an organization’s internal and external environment have an impact on that purpose. CIC provides services that help charities understand the impacts on fundraising by taking the cumulative knowledge base provided by our associates, adding to the overall expertise of the charity, and engaging the funding community to create efficient fundraising programs. Factors that facilitate collective intelligence are diverse perspectives, structures that allow for efficient information gathering, defining goals and objectives, fostering communications, and encouraging incentives for individuals to learn and contribute.
