NEWS RELEASE April 12, 2010

Toronto, Ontario – Endeavour Volunteer Consulting for Non-Profits (Endeavour) announced today an equivalent of $600,000 in consulting grants to eight non-profit organizations in the Greater Toronto Area for its Spring/Summer 2010 projects. The grants enable non-profit organizations that otherwise cannot afford consulting to receive assistance to help them improve their performance and community impact.

Today’s announcement will bring the value of Endeavour’s management consulting services to $2,325,000 by October 2010, representing over 29,000 hours donated by Endeavour through 32 projects [

].  Instead of receiving a monetary grant, each client is matched with a consulting team for a six-month engagement. The teams are comprised of professional and student volunteers representing diverse expertise and experiences.

Alex Gill, Endeavour board member who runs a non-profit consulting and charity management firm, Mendicant Group, and teaches non-profit management and corporate citizenship at Ryerson University, said, “The private sector uses professional consulting all the time to improve, focus and learn. Unfortunately, this is a resource that many non-profits cannot afford. That’s why I am proud to support and mentor teams from Endeavour. The organization provides enthusiastic, professional volunteers who can help non-profits address many of their consulting challenges, and that’s a situation where everyone wins.”
