Non Profit Evolution is a consulting firm dedicated to building capacity, including board governance and organizational development, in small to mid-size non profit organizations.

Non profits have dueling priorities: to meet their mission and be run as well or better than the best business. In order to do both, boards and senior staff must set high standards to ensure excellent leadership, quality programming, financial accountability and transparency. Only the very best non profits are widely considered to be good stewards of the community’s resources.

Non Profit Evolution can work with the leadership of your organization to create a plan, and in certain cases, assist in the implementation of that plan, to raise your profile and help your organization become the organization of choice for philanthropy and board leadership.



Dani Robbins is the strategist, founder and principal of Non Profit Evolution. Dani is a respected thought leader, practitioner and speaker and has served over 20 years in the non-profit arena, the majority in executive leadership positions. Dani works with a variety of nonprofit boards and executive leaders to implement stronger and better aligned organizations. When serving in executive leadership roles, Dani turned around, reengaged and created sustainability in two domestic violence shelters/rape crisis centers and two Boys & Girls Clubs and introduced the Women’s Coalition – the prelude to the Women’s Center – at Case Western Reserve University. She continues to work assisting organizations with board and resource development planning and training, strategic and tactical planning, system development and executive coaching.
