You’re on a mission. So are we.

Building stronger nonprofits is our superpower.

The Varga Group consultants are trusted advisors, coaches and strategists to high-performing, high-impact organizations and their leaders.

What makes us different?

When you work with The Varga Group, you can expect the same comprehensive services a large firm delivers – combined with the personal commitment, real collaboration and customized solutions of a boutique agency. In a world that tries so hard to simplify and standardize, we prefer to dig in deep and address your unique challenges with creative thinking and customized strategies.

“Amy and her team have been extraordinary to help us strengthen our staff, inspire our board and strategically prepare for our first comprehensive campaign.”
