plan to thrive



PENN Creative Strategy works with foundation and nonprofit leaders to help them navigate organizational change. Our team expertly guides strategic planning, organizational and leadership development processes. 

We help clients think differently about persistent challenges and new opportunities so you can create breakthrough impact. We help you thrive.


  • We are creative. If you need to break out of your mental box, we are an ideal thought partner. We will help you think differently.

  • We are disciplined. We will help you stay on track with your project, manage your meetings, and bring the project in on time.

  • We are collaborative. We will help you curate diverse ideas and perspectives from within and outside your organization.

 Our virtual, boutique firm ensures you get the attention of a principal, while bringing the resources of a larger firm, without the overhead.  We unearth the best suggestions from your stakeholders - plus some you haven’t thought of - and use our knowledge of best practices to hone the best ideas for your future.  We are collaborative, generative, positive and future focused – your ideal thought partners for this journey.
