Thank You State Street Foundation!
We are pleased to announce that the State Street Foundation is once again partnering with ESC to provide capacity building support to State Street grantees.

Grantees facing a significant challenge or opportunity can confidentially discuss their needs with ESC and develop a consulting engagement that will be at least partially subsidized by the State Street Foundation. Past projects have included strategic planning, operations, board governance, program evaluation and outcome measurements, succession planning, and executive coaching.

If you are interested in learning more about how ESC can help your organization please contact Director of  Consulting Ulea Grace Lago at or 617-357-5550.
