Succession Planning

Planning for your nonprofit’s next “right” leader
It is important for your organization to have a succession plan in place, especially as founding and long-term executive directors consider retirement. A succession plan serves as a roadmap for the transition and helps prepare staff, funders and the board for changes to come.

The Support Center works with the executive director, board and senior staff to ensure a smooth transition by developing an emergency and/or long-term succession plan for the departure of a CEO and/or key management staff. We specialize in providing founders, long-tenured executives and board leaders with coaching and organizational assistance in preparation for an executive transition.

To learn more or discuss your organization’s needs contact, Xander Subashi, Associate Director of Programs.


We work as a team within the support center, and in partnership with our clients, funders, and the nonprofit community at large.


We assist our clients by developing appropriate and sustainable solutions that achieve outcomes and maximize performance.


We uphold the highest ethical standards and model the processes we recommend.
