Organization Information

Mission Statement

Compass’ mission is to inspire the active engagement of business professionals with
their local nonprofits to transform communities.

Description

Compass provides pro bono consulting services to nonprofits whose work benefits the Greater Washington community. Compass recruits, trains and supports teams of volunteers, mainly MBAs from top business schools, who provide the consulting services.

Through a careful screening and interviewing process, Compass chooses nonprofit clients. Compass selected 30 clients for the 2012-2013 project year. Compass then selects graduates from top business schools or senior business professionals who have Compass experience as Project Leaders, and then staffs each project team with a mix of volunteers who bring complementary skills and experience. Compass carefully matches Project Leaders, volunteers and clients to create the most effective working relationships. Projects last approximately seven months - from early fall until late spring.
