Future Proofing Charities

“Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement”.
William Pollard

Donors and funders worry about governance and risk and get excited about achieving goals. With a mission to inform, educate and motivate, ReganStein management consultants are offering this opportunity for a review of key organisational processes to ensure your organisation meets regulatory requirements, mitigates risks and demonstrates achievements.

Based on key aspects of what makes organisations successful- the organisational review focuses on governance, risk management and results-based management to ensure your organisation meets challenges and replicates success.

Expected Outcomes

In today ’s environment, donors and funders need to know their investment is safe, reputational risk minimised and goals achieved.
