“Endeavour is an innovative and effective way to deal with two strategic challenges facing Ontario. We do a great service to non-profits that can’t afford professional consulting, helping them get to the next level. And in an era where there are fewer and fewer volunteers and their average age is increasing, we offer a great way for younger people to engage in the non-profit sector.” – Alex Gill, Principal, Mendicant Group
Helping non-profit leaders improve organizational capacity and community impact
Since 2007, Endeavour has delivered $7,000,000* in consulting to help over 100 non-profit organizations achieve their goals, build capacity and improve community impact. Our volunteer consultants have provided management advice to the leaders of local and national non-profit organizations and charities, helping communities in many areas, such as the arts, children and family services, disabilities, education, environment, healthcare, immigrant services, rural development, skills training, poverty relief, and youth development. We work with emerging to well-established non-profit organizations that otherwise cannot afford professional consulting.

Engaging and developing young people and professionals to volunteer their skills
To date, Endeavour has engaged and developed more than 800 professionals and university students to volunteer their talents with the non-profit sector. Through working closely with management and boards on strategic issues, Endeavour volunteers help non-profit organizations build capacity to achieve long-term impact. The valuable insights and experiences that our volunteers gain through consulting with the non-profit sector enable and motivate many of them to further their contributions in the sector, from joining non-profit boards to working in non-profit. The training, mentorship, experiences and new connections that Endeavour volunteers gain help them achieve professional growth. Top business schools and consulting firms are some of the places our alumni have gone on to.
