BRG provides advisory services to nonprofit NGOs and for-profit global development organizations that provide mission-driven services under federally funded and private donor awards. The unique challenge for NGOs and not-for-profits (NFPs) is the tension that exists between balancing the need for compliant practices with limited budgets and resources. Our clients have a broad geographic footprint and are faced with the additional complexities and risks associated with decentralized field office operations.
