about our work

We believe arts, culture and society are interwoven: they reflect and inform each other.  Our approach to social transformation is an iterative, creative process that elevates the human condition.

PENN Creative Strategy partners with foundation and nonprofit leaders to help them navigate change. We work to build a thriving, just and relevant cultural & social sector.  Our team expertly guides strategy, organizational and leadership development processes.

Our bespoke approach is rooted in collaboration with our clients to identify the best solution to their needs.  We help clients think differently about persistent challenges and new opportunities to hone what it means to be resilient in a changing society.

“You pushed us to question our assumptions, focus on what is truly important, and think about how we would measure our progress. You made sure the plan was one that would not sit on a shelf!”

— Rob Moore, former Executive Director, Environmental Advocates of New York
