Our Clients


Steve Campbell, Executive Director (Photograph by: Lisa Johnson, St. Louis Review)Foundations are a vital part of the non-profit world.  Typically, established with cause-specific intentions, foundations may need similar consulting assistance as the various organizations they support.  Holmes, Radford & Avalon has helped a number of foundations strengthen and reinvigorate their purposes and mission.  Our work has included strategic planning, strategic issues studies, organizational development, seminars, board development, leadership training and program evaluation studies.

Holmes, Radford & Avalon can also provide technical assistance, coaching and fund development consulting services to recipients of capacity building grants – as we have done for foundations like The Missouri Foundation for Health and The Kellogg Foundation.   We have also provided services on behalf of management agencies such as The Nonprofit Services Consortium in St. Louis.
