What clients are saying:

Hope Story approached Amplify Mission affiliate Christine Lancing to help us draft a strategic plan when we faced an impending separation from our parent organization in the U.S. after 20 years of collaboration.

There was a very real possibility that our donors and key constituents would evaporate in the wake of the momentous changes on the horizon.

Christine Lancing was thoughtful in her process, caring deeply about who we consulted and how we gathered data. She recognized that as much as we needed a final report, this moment in our history offered a crucial opportunity to deeply engage the key constituents in our organization’s “Why”.

Facilitated strategic planning

Using Appreciative Inquiry and other strength-based tools, our facilitators guide you through a process of discovery, discernment, dreaming, design and delivery that engages all your stakeholders. The results include a clear shared vision for your organization, an inspired and actionable strategic plan, and team buy-in for implementation.

Strategy implementation

A plan is only as good as your organization’s ability to implement it. Our practitioners can help you run with a systematic operating system that will have all the parts of your organization working to implement your plans. And the results will speak for themselves.


Is your organization ready to innovate using low-risk experiments? Prototyping is a way of building solutions in order to think them through and bringing ideas to life so you can get feedback and rework them. If you are having trouble figuring out how to make a change let us help you work it through.

Fundraising assessments

When you are not sure how to take your fundraising to the next level, a fundraising assessment can help. Our team of specialists has helped many organizations increase and diversify their revenue streams. We’ll look at what you are doing now, compare to benchmarks, identify opportunities, and give you a tailored step-by-step fundraising plan to keep you moving forward.

Advisory services and coaching

The story of your organization is told in many ways – from your past deeds to your communications and financial reporting. Stories and reporting are great because they give us data, but data is useless without actionable insights. Partnering with Amplify Mission gives you access to subject matter experts from across the non-profit space, local to global and spanning many sectors and sizes. It’s like having a personalized advisory board to help you amplify your mission.
