Services and Approach

Stefanie Borsari Consulting can help donors, philanthropic families, and private foundation boards at every stage of your philanthropic journey. Whether you are at the beginning and need direction as you get started, have matured such that it's time to reassess and adjust, or are contemplating sunsetting, I can guide and support you through decision-making, planning, and implementing. Every engagement follows the same general approach, with customizations and creativity applied as benefits our work together and your desired outcomes.


Defining Vision, Values, and Mission

Helping individuals, donors, families and boards to understand and define their unique and collective visions, values, intent, and purpose. This reduces ambiguity and uncertainty and provides a base from which structure and strategy can be built. Once consensus is achieved and frameworks are established, productive and meaningful action can be taken toward accomplishing goals and effecting impact.

Facilitation and Planning

Advising and supporting philanthropic donors, families, and boards facing or navigating changes like receiving significant funding, engaging the next generation, changing funding priorities, or addressing governance structures and policies. I guide you through both structured and organic conversation and exercises to arrive at solutions and decisions, to identify objectives and goals, and to architect plans to achieve those goals. 


Philanthropic Strategy and Advisory

Guiding families and boards through every stage of a private foundation or philanthropic enterprise's lifecycle including leading and managing the foundation or enterprise, and, increasingly commonly, sunsetting a foundation. As Fractional Executive Director, I provide professionalism, structure, and support for the long-term/foreseeable future as your dedicated leader or through a shorter period as I help you craft the organization's future and set you up for success.
