Hands On Charlotte

Hands on Charlotte, whose goal is to promote volunteerism and community service throughout Charlotte, sought PMA’s counsel in 2011 to launch a strategic plan.

“Facing a multitude of transitions, including the change of their executive director and turnover on the Board of Directors, Hands on Charlotte was seeking guidance to develop a mission-specific planning process,” says PMA Managing Director Josh Jacobson. “After individual interviews and retreats with the board, we helped create an outline for a strategy that focused on new board and staff recruitment, program development and successful fundraising.”

With PMA’s assistance, Hands on Charlotte has created a vision for the next three to five years that will allow them to continue elevating the organization’s mission.


“PMA Consulting has assisted Thompson with many projects over the last few years, most recently with organizational strategy.  When we wanted to make some pretty dramatic changes to staff job functions and goals, PMA was able to provide an objective viewpoint to really complement our team dynamic.  As a partner, they have helped the Development Team at Thompson to evaluate tactical needs and expand our strategic focus.  Thanks to PMA Consulting, we look forward to starting a new fiscal year with fresh ideas and a renewed enthusiasm for our work!”
