The Varga Approach

Our first job is to gain a deep understanding of your unique culture, mission and programs. From day one, you’ll find that our team is hands-on, strategic, thoughtful, energetic, caring and fun to work with. Six key principles guide the way we approach every client relationship.

Client-Centered & Empathetic

We sincerely care about each of our clients.

The Power of Questions

We believe powerful questions are the real catalysts for change.

Genuine Curiosity

We seek to understand and value different perspectives.

Doing is More than Knowing

We move you from knowing into action.

Abundance & Possibility

We focus on clients’ assets and strengths, emphasizing your untapped potential.

Joy Matters

We take our work seriously without taking ourselves seriously. Teams that have fun together get better results.

“The Varga Group was extraordinary in helping us strengthen our staff, inspire our board and strategically prepare for our first comprehensive campaign.”

Ann Prater, retired Executive Director, Portland Community College Foundation

The PCC Foundation’s first campaign, The Campaign for Opportunity, raised $46+ million to support students on their path to prosperity by providing resources that increase access and success.

Anti-racism, Anti-hate Statement

The Varga Group is anti-racist and anti-hate. We stand in solidarity with people who are BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodiverse, and from all countries of origin, those who follow any religion, or no religion, and who identify as any combination or intersection of these identities. This statement will continue to evolve as we learn and unlearn.

If you identify with any of the groups listed above and feel uncomfortable with the language we are using, or feel there’s more we should be saying or doing; have stories or resources you’d like us to amplify through our platform and network, please reach out.

Words We Live By
