Achieve your goal and ours: Create Good Things


Nonprofit organizations are at the core of everything CGT Connects does. They are the reason we exist – to form a community of all the 1.5M+ nonprofits in the country and the consultants who support them.

Our Vision

To Create Good Things for the nonprofit community. More specifically, we are dedicated to the field of capacity building and providing support to nonprofit organizations— which we define as any intentional and sustained effort to improve an organization’s functioning operationally and programmatically— and improving the way it gets done.

Our Mission

To support and empower mission driven organizations and consultants to create an effective and impactful nonprofit community.

We achieve our mission by:

Creating Connections:  At the heart of CGT connects is to develop a diverse and extensive network of effective nonprofit professionals across the country. Thereby, engaging skilled professionals and nonprofit organizations in an intentional and meaningful way.

Creating Understanding:  Our Peer to Peer forum is an open platform for community members to connect freely. Pose a question or initiate a discussion about an idea or thought you may have with your peers. Our comprehensive array of assessments allow you to identify potential gaps in scope, structure your work optimally, and truly understand your project’s requirements.

Creating Confidence:  We take pride in ensuring that consultants are approved with valid and reliable references

Creating Quality and Value: We focus on continuous quality improvement, data-driven and cost-effective decisions. We made sure all services are FREE to nonprofits and consultants pay a minimal subscription fee with no commission and other hidden fees. This allows us to create an environment that has a positive impact on the communities  we all serve.
