Our Approach

Transformation is the Answer.

More than 50% of technology projects fail. The technology moves forward, but the organization stays in place. Why? Because although new technology can be powerful, it can’t transform a nonprofit on its own.

Old Organization

+ New Technology

= Expensive Old Organization

Placing new technology in an unchanged nonprofit organization—without implementing new thinking, processes, and habits—often results in some degree of failure. Expense is made, but the desired results are not achieved.

3 Ways We Can Help

Passionately Independent and Transparent

Build Consulting is an advocate for our clients. We find the right solution for your organization by considering your needs, your resources, and your realities.

We don’t accept bonuses or partner with vendors. If we stand to gain from a recommendation that we make in this way, we tell our customers before they make their decision, so they’re properly informed. If a vendor sends a referral check despite our polite refusal, we either send it back or donate it.

We do have good working relationships with some of the largest and best-established vendors, which we leverage for our clients. We are open about these relationships and proactively disclose them, so everyone is on the same page.
