Toscano Advisors, LLC is a client-centered consulting group which brings together specific talents to meet an organization’s needs. Combining over 60 years of experience, work with over 400 non-profit organizations and up-to-date knowledge of current nonprofit dynamics and dilemmas, our firm is well-positioned to be a valuable resource to our clients.

We differ from other consulting firms in that we have developed a network of independent, experienced specialists for referral to address specific client needs.

Our process involves an initial assessment consultation on needs, followed by assignment of one or a panel of specialists to deliver results on a cost efficient basis. Only those services needed are assigned without overhead and additional fees.
