In an arena served almost exclusively by for-profit consultancies, CGR stands apart. Since our founding, we have operated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, a status that insulates us from political bias and holds us accountable to our clients’ true shareholders – the communities they serve – positioning them as more desirable places to live and work.
Just like our clients, we’re in the business of making a difference.
CGR delivers up-to-date data that's easy to use and readily accessible. Having a foundation of objective data and analysis that's based on a common data set allows us to work together to make our communities even better. Using our Community Profile we can review our accomplishments and challenges from the previous year, then determine the focus of our efforts for the coming year.
