Rashmi Narsana

Rashmi Narsana
Senior Advisor

Rashmi has more than 18 years of nonprofit experience in management and leadership roles. She specializes in operations, business development, systems and process improvements, mergers, and acquisitions. She leads capacity building strategy projects that help organizations to create well-developed plans to achieve their goals through a research-informed and data-based process. Rashmi also serves as adjunct faculty at the University of Vermont, where she teaches Nonprofit Management, and Fundraising and Development. Rashmi has served on multiple nonprofit boards and has been actively involved with several nonprofits during her career.

After reviewing and submitting more than 500 proposals annually from Federal, State, Foundation and other funding sources for over 15 years, Rashmi realized there was no one central place for nonprofit organizations to access and identify quality consultants. This gave birth to CGT Connects: She led a year-long inquiry of interviews, meetings, surveys, all centered around answering these questions:

  • How do nonprofits build capacity? How do nonprofits strengthen their services? How can consultants support nonprofit organizations in achieving their goals?
  • Who are the key players in supporting nonprofit organizations?
  • Where are the current gaps in and barriers in providing support to nonprofit organizations?
  • And finally, how can we build an effective, responsive, and comprehensive community that supports both mission-driven organizations and impact-oriented consultants across the country?
