Building Wealth Wisely for Pacific Northwest Nonprofit Organizations
Nonprofit Board & Leadership Development
IMS is your trusted nonprofit investment advisor who will help answer the tough questions.
When you sit on a philanthropic board, you share a personal fiduciary responsibility for protecting the assets and investments of the nonprofit you represent. Hiring an expert financial partner reduces your personal exposure while protecting and growing your organization’s assets.
You do a lot with a little, and we want to help. Our nonprofit investment team knows the best practices of board development and hosts complementary events for your leadership team to receive first hand knowledge of how they can best guide your organization. We guide your guides.
Your small and mighty staff works hard raising money, writing grants, hosting events, recruiting board members, and finding strategic partners. When you are ready to talk with a partner that will guide your nonprofit leadership team on financial matters, we stand ready to help. To have a complimentary analysis of the true fees your nonprofit is currently paying, or just to have a second set of honest eyes on your nonprofit’s financial big picture, contact us!
