Wellspring's work is characterized by:
Deep expertise in strategy for nonprofits
We serve individual nonprofit organizations, from foundations, to those involved in advocacy to those that that work on the ground to meet needs such as food, housing, education and health. We work closely with our clients to find the most efficient and effective ways to improve their services and create targeted solutions to the problems in the world they most wish to solve.
The pursuit of creative solutions
