“Marga” is a Sanskrit word; a path taken to arrive at a destination; it is an approach to a problem; with an implication of faith and dedication.

We are committed to these principles in client projects and internal practice.  This list of values includes features that capture the kind of thinking required to create and implement the pathways that will be required to solve today’s complex challenges and lead new and timely ideas and approaches.

A New York City – based global consulting firm, Marga Incorporated provides strategic advice and research to strengthen various pathways to improve society.  These pathways are manifested in a variety of ways, from philanthropic giving initiatives to creative partnerships that leverage the combined resources of the public and private and nonprofit sectors.  Marga’s clients have spanned a wide range of institutions, from well-established multibillion dollar foundations to grassroots community organizations to federal agencies to Fortune 500 companies and beyond.

Marga is not merely a consulting firm bringing an outside point of view and a set of skills to its client projects.  Our mission is to strengthen ways in which resources are harnessed to improve communities and society. In our work, we strive to be:

• Innovative
• Strategic
• Creative
