Don Summers



I am a business development consultant for ambitious non-profits seeking to achieve scale. My firm seeks to propagate badly needed disruptive innovation in the non-profit consulting space. My current clients include Treehouse (Seattle foster care agency), GreenBlue (enviro org in Charlottesville, VA-- founded by Will McDonough), Basel Action Network (international NGO in the toxic trade and e-waste space), and the Hope Center (Seattle center for services to homeless women and children) and Eastside Pathways (network of 30 non-profits & the city and school district that serve children on the Eastside). I have a proven social-sector biz-dev methodology that is way faster, much better, and way cheaper than anything currently available in the United States. That's no BS. It is totally battle proven with some of the top NGOS today-- we create high-horsepower business plans to create revenue hockey sticks and solve problems. We are trying to give our methodology away to other like-minded people who understand business and seek the shortest possible path to non-profit scalability. Would enjoy networking with people who understand the potential of merging the best from the private and social sectors. Everything is open source-- see www.altruistpartners.com for comprehensive information.
