You cannot do everything 
           by
yourself 

Nonprofit organizations are typically the kind of structure that need to be super optimized regarding staff, efficiency, administrative, accounting, reporting, communication processes... and so on. Why ? To make sense. It clearly makes sense spending most of your collected funds directly on the projects, to impact on the field and treating the root causes. Right ? It makes sense for you, for your beneficiaries and for your partners / donors also. 

On the other hand, you have hundreds of needs to address. You feel maybe either understaffed, underequipped, inexperienced or you just don't have this expertise.

 

Here, we go : this is where social and environmental impact consultant comes in!

Our job is to provide specialized and efficient services to structures that either cannot or do not wish to address a need themselves.

and, it is OK.

Why to act now ?

You have the power to change the world

 

We have all noticed it : the number of interest groups or nonprofit organizations have drastically increased. As nonprofits, you are definitively the dominant actors and have a prominent position in negotiations.

 

You have a clear power regarding advocacy for human rights, peace, environment, but also in delivering relief for crisis, humanitarian aid and, for sure, in development assistance.

Nonprofits impact society in numerous ways but evaluations of the programs they implement are rare. For many reasons but generally due to a lack of reliable data.

The real power and impact of nonprofits needs to be analyzed, improved, revealed sometimes and used at its full potential.

 

 

The Catalysts' co guides you from A to Z in your project management : from planning to evaluation. Even (we dream about it) until duplication for large scale impact !

Not fighting the old,

but building the new

Nonprofit organizations are known as altruistic groups that aims to fairly and impartially influence public policy, people engagement and bring society changes with no interest behind.

 

But, nowadays, people are more and more doubtful about their impact and fairness. How can we know it is a "real" organization ? Isn't all corrupted structures? How can we be sure how they use our funds ? Nonprofits have been perceived as structures answering the interests of their donors, sponsors and members. On that way, many nonprofits have been questioned on their own effectiveness, accountability, and legitimacy.

So, to answer the questions "Can we really trust the NGOs and associations?" or "How can we be sure about their positive impacts ?". We answer, clearly, "YES!"

 

Yes, BUT : To be a relevant and trustful regional, national and global change maker, it is necessary for the nonprofit sector to acknowledge and to address its own weaknesses before to address the ones of others.

 

Focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new. The new solutions to implement. The new values you want to spread. The new trainings for your staff. The new impact you will have.

The Catalysts' co helps you to analyze, to audit, to evaluate, to sort it out, to choose, to launch and to keep your compass oriented solutions !

Inspire

It is also question to inspire others, your customers, your partners, your employees, your suppliers,...  Until every single person that see your brand or name will link it with your actions nodding their head of admiration.

The political, environmental and social powers of your organizations are real. So, let's use it on a very huge positive way.

 

Become a “catalyst”: this external element that makes the link that was missing, brings the energy that nobody had anymore, propose an new idea not yet explored and, so, bring a change, an improvement, the little sparkle to light all.

For sure, the consultants of The Catalysts' co will always do their best to achieve it.

Because, this is our secret goal : that you become the one sharing your own expertise, best practices and "how to..." to others for them to spread positive impact.

You benefit from specific accessible services

The Catalysts co. is a consulting organization AND a nonprofit structure. 

You benefit from the low-cost structure and frugal functioning of The Catalysts' co.


Your consulting fees are partially sponsored by other structures

  • We worked in collaboration with corporate companies, CSR departments, foundations, developed and recognized big organizations, 

  • They paid normal consulting fees

  • We reinject a percentage of the fees we received to pay part of your consulting services to cover at least the functioning expenses.

Why should you still pay even if you are a small structure ?

Why should you still pay instead we are a nonprofit ?

We share our expertise, our field knowledge and use all our experiences to serve you. We work for and with you with great dedication and energy. So, for our actions to be sustainable and continue to benefit others and impact further, we need your financial compensation. 

In addition, from our 12 years of experience in international development, we have witnessed that "free" services never get the expected impact. Recommendations are not well implemented, follow up is not properly done​...  The impact is low and, sometimes negative. As our main "remuneration", in the end, is to achieve with you a long term, scalable and as big as possible positive social and environmental impact: we request consulting fees.
