The GPG Difference

Everyone at GPG has made a commitment at some point in their careers to working for what they believe in - no matter the cost. Building stronger communities of support, empowering changemakers, and creating innovative ways of helping others is what we love to do.

No matter the mission or the vision, the ability to fund it is imperative to survival in this sector. We specialize in building capacity for small-to-medium sized organizations by providing services that create manageable growth. We do the tough work of navigating the ever-changing landscape of philanthropy to make sure that the best possible outcome is achieved for your organization.

Nonprofits, benefit corporations, social innovators, government, and cause-related for-profit companies all are part of the modern ecosystem of philanthropy. We're proud to work with all of these organizations who are making a difference. If you're ready to advance your mission, we're happy to hear your ideas and make them a reality.
