Solving social problems requires leaders from foundations, businesses, nonprofits, and governments to reimagine the systems and relationships that shape our world. We strive for a deep understanding of how to create social change.
The FSG team made a major contribution by analyzing how large international NGOs can evolve to meet new needs in a rapidly changing context. The report they prepared brought new insights and has sparked a powerful dialogue within the sector.
Ruth Levine, Director, Global Development and Population Program, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
Intellectual rigor, deep knowledge of organizations and systems, and commitment to communities—for those reasons, FSG is an invaluable partner. Our teams have collaborated to support the growing field of practitioners using collective impact to tackle society’s most complex problems. We couldn’t—and wouldn’t want to—do it without them.

FSG is our ‘go to’ organization for advancing the state of the art in shared value.
Gary Cohen, Executive Vice President and President, Global Health and Development, Becton, Dickinson and Company
FSG has excelled at creating models, helping people understand how to operationalize those models, and being a convener to bring people together to have a ripple effect more broadly on creating social value. The role that FSG plays is unique and incredibly important if we’re going to look at ways to not just do business as usual—but to advance different and new partnerships.

FSG brought a thoughtful, informed, real-world perspective to our strategic planning process. Their input and support laid the foundation for a remarkable, global strategic plan that will revolutionize our work. I highly recommend FSG to other philanthropy professionals!
Mary Jane Melendez, Executive Director, General Mills Foundation
FSG is the gold standard in thought leadership for the philanthropic sector. FSG's publications are required reading for our board orientation, volunteers, and peers in the philanthropic community. FSG is always thinking about how to help the field move to the next level of efficacy to change lives for the better in communities around the world.
Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker, President and CEO of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, and FSG Board Member
The FSG team is different from other consultants. They don't just throw out a bunch of recommendations and leave; they really care about helping us make an impact in the world and in our business. The team members all have the same values, passion, and dedication, and they guided us consistently through every step of the project.
