How Can Coaching Help Your Organization?
Results-oriented coaching helps improve leadership insight and action -- critical as nonprofits adjust to changing realities. Learn how coaching can be a long-term investment that fosters organizational impact as TSNE Senior Consultant Bob Greene shares stories in this month's Consultants Corner.
The Need for Online Grant Management
When TSNE began the search for an online tool for accepting grant applications, the process led us to Foundant Technologies. Their Grant Lifecycle Manager (GLM) makes it easy to receive and evaluate online applications, record decisions and measure outcomes using a user friendly and affordable online grants management solution.
Recently, they featured TSNE in a case study about our transition to the online system.

Communities for Restorative Justice Receives Prestigious Challenge Grant

The program has been recognized internationally and is unique in its partnership between community and police.
