International Advisement

NTAC’s portfolio includes a comprehensive list of essential components for sound nonprofit services and effective philanthropy that is called upon both for National and International advisement

  • infrastructure capacity and development
  • opportunities for expansion
  • program evolution and development
  • fundability and strategic development
  • targeted networking strategy
  • marketing and communication
  • community engagement and development
