Shaping the Future. Together.

Community & Economic Development

Organizations engaging in community and economic development work on a wide range of initiatives, from creating jobs to providing social services to supporting businesses and partnering with governments. To generate the greatest impact, these groups must answer a number of key questions:

  • What impact are we trying to have and how do we measure it? What individual and family outcomes are critical?

  • What future strategy will allow us to maximize our impact?

  • Should we grow, either geographically or into different sectors?

  • How can we improve our fundraising and identify new sources, especially in a difficult economic environment?

BCG works with many different organizations in community and economic development and brings the full capabilities of the firm to every project. We partner with nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations, and city, regional, and national governments to accelerate development around the world.
