CGR refreshed our strategic framework in 2020-21 to explore ways to sharpen our focus and increase our impact. With the help of our consultant, Suzanne Piotrowski of Badfish Consulting, we talked with clients and community members to gain outside perspective and then worked with our board to deeply understand and define our values, purpose, and value proposition to clients and communities.
CGR is a nonprofit that relies on donations to help make us stronger, more nimble, and ever-growing in our capacity to serve our community. Learn more about how to support CGR’s high-quality research, analysis, data insights and collaboration.
