TANGO “ABOVE THE FOLD” NONPROFIT CONSULTING

Concentrated High-Value Fixed-Fee Engagements for TANGO Members

Subject Matter Tutorials

The TANGO Nonprofit Method textbook provides a comprehensive overview of the information that nonprofit board members, staff, and supporters “need to know” about modern nonprofit sector organizations.

The textbook is divided into the fourteen chapters listed below. If your board of directors or management team would benefit from a presentation on, or a refresher of, any of the subject areas included in the textbook, this service may be ideal for you. We have prepared a series of one to two-hour interactive presentations for each of the Chapters. The tutorials could be presented at a regular meeting of the board of directors, at a retreat, or at a special session called for this purpose. You can pick and choose the subjects that are relevant to your organization.
