In 2005 Carol A. Hass combined more than a decade of nonprofit experience with a previous 13 years of entrepreneurship to form Community Works Consulting. Founding the firm allowed Carol to have the best of both worlds. She could return to being an entrepreneur while simultaneously continuing to serve the nonprofit sector and the visionary leaders that she had come to so deeply respect.

In the ensuing years, Carol expanded the firm by selectively building a team of dedicated nonprofit professionals who felt the same way about the nonprofit sector as she does. Each affiliate consultant that joins the team brings to their work the depth of knowledge and experience that our clients have come to expect and appreciate.

Today Community Works Consulting annually raises millions of dollars in grant funding for clients, facilitates complex agency wide and communitywide planning processes, and helps clients assess the best way forward in complex and uncertain situations. Among the many values and tenants that inform our work is this critical belief – our work is in support of your vision and your success. We hope that we can earn the right to help you in your efforts to change the world.

“Working with Community Works Consulting was professionally and personally a wonderful and memorable experience.

Community Works Consulting’s well-rounded expertise allowed them to be nimble to our changing needs and helped provide tremendous insight and guidance for our investments.”
