OUR EXPERTISE & IMPACT

Marga brings outside guidance to clients, enabling them to develop significant and lasting efforts that involve multiple stakeholders and intentionally employ new ways of navigating a complex array of circumstances within particular places and across borders.

In viewing the state of affairs in the fields in which Marga has been working, our influence is quite apparent.  The attention to the role of universities and other anchor institutions in strengthening communities, the significance of school connections to higher education, and the increased attention to the role of diversity in philanthropy seem to have reached a tipping point of recognized importance for addressing a range of social concerns.

While the Marga Method has been at the heart of our work, some particular areas of emphasis and progress have emerged.  Our expertise is inclusive of many issues affecting community and and has been provided to communities across the Nation and the World. Our services have been provided to and on behalf of foundations, corporations, governments, universities, and many other entities.  Read more about some of the specific services we provide in our capabilities section.
