WHO

WE ARE

The Mission of MSG is to prepare our clients for forward progress.  We advise, direct and confirm areas whereby organizations can feel confident in the direction they decide to go. We offer unbiased transparency in these processes for maximum information for organizations to decide your next steps. 

For years organizations have relied upon outside counsel to determine if they are ready for next steps of growth in capacity.  With over 60 years of leadership in government, nonprofit industry, and small business ownership, they have provided guidance for government projects, meetings and savings plans; feasibility studies, capital campaigns, leadership workshops and trainings for hundreds of individuals. 

 

WHAT MAKES

US UNIQUE

Our Methods - MSG takes the bigness out of front-line solutions for small to midsized cities, schools, and organizations, to help those become more effective and efficient. We navigate the political pressures of difficult decisions by assisting these entities with methodical approaches for the best long-term solutions.

Our Value - We believe that any sort of study or analysis should be affordable to organizations and schools for two main reasons: 1) It provides an opportunity for all organizations to learn about themselves, without the need to “break the bank” or needing to be a multi-million dollar organization.  2) Less money spent on studies means more money that can be used for your mission. 

Our Objectivity - Ever find it questionable that the group offering capital campaign consultant help, happens to be the same group who provides the feasibility study?    We think that's like asking a fence company to come to your house, and then asking them if they think you need a fence. 

Whether we are assisting with a feasibility study, government analysis, or staff engagement study . . . we believe it's only fair to you, your councils, boards, and committees, and your supporters that you are provided an objective and transparent report. 

Our Personal Touch - Being former Nonprofit CEO's and Government Leaders, we just don't give advice, we have also walked in your shoes.  At MSG we are always a phone call or email away.  Clients will never be lost in a sea of bureaucracy or passed to other associates or Jr Associates midway through a project.
