How It Works

In typical BANC projects, teams of five to six alumni nonprofit business consultants work closely with nonprofit executive directors, boards, and other stakeholders to meet specific objectives over a six-month period. BANC consultant teams have completed 32 projects to date, delivering significant value to their nonprofit clients.

“The caliber of support and generosity of spirit toward a nonprofit, nonpaying client was unexpected and surprisingly uplifting for all those that worked with two BANC teams. The data analysis conducted, the presentation decks, and the interactions with board members and staff were top tier.”

— Emilia DiMenco, President and CEO, Women’s Business Development Center
