TCC Services Overview
TCC Group provides strategy services to private independent foundations, family foundations, community foundations, health care conversion foundations, and grantmaking public charities, and nonprofits of all types. This work typically involves data collection and analysis, report writing, facilitation, and ongoing counsel. We also provide other types of strategy assistance to our foundation and corporate clients, including grants program design, capacity-building program design, and governance planning.
Our work with philanthropic and corporate entities prepares, strengthens, and amplifies their ability to work across and within sectors to achieve collective goals. TCC Group helps foundations and companies interested in building their internal capacity, whether through internal efficiency studies, reviews of internal processes, or facilitation of change management and organizational transitions, including launches and executive transitions. Our work in this area is data-driven, grounded in an understanding of the specific strengths and resources foundations and companies need to be as effective as possible in both their grantmaking and non-grantmaking roles, ultimately achieving their societal visions.
TCC Group provides a range of management services for unstaffed foundation clients. For these clients we serve as the primary foundation/fund administrator, handling all grant administration and basic operational needs. We are the primary point of contact for grantseekers and the de facto staff for these foundations with no professional program or administrative staff. We provide a range of services, customized for each client’s needs: we handle matters relating to governance (e.g., planning and leading board meetings, developing board dockets, etc.); grantmaking (e.g., organizing proposal intake and review processes; conducting proposal review; overseeing grant payments; and managing grant reporting processes); finance (e.g., working with investment and accounting professionals to develop financial reports; ensuring compliance with IRS regulations); and generally ensuring that foundations operate as efficiently and effectively as possible
TCC Group is headquartered in New York City, with team members throughout the U.S. We have more than 40 consulting staff, as well as a wide network of affiliates. We work in teams of consultants assembled to reflect the client’s consulting needs and staff’s areas of expertise. All of our consultants have relevant formal education and practical experience working in nonprofit organizations and philanthropies. We are critical thinkers, provocative partners, effective communicators, skilled facilitators, and insightful strategists. We work with organizations of various sizes and lifecycle stages, in a range of sectors, including arts and culture, health and human services, criminal justice, education, environment, youth development, policy and advocacy, international aid and development, and public administration, to name a few.
