Purpose and passion are drivers of the nonprofit sector, philanthropy, volunteerism and community engagement. For some, purpose and passion are discovered over time and often the journey of unearthing them is met with ambiguity, resistance and overwhelm – there are so many problems that need solving, limitless passions to pursue and it is difficult to find the intersection of where purpose meets passion. For others, purpose and passion in life are palpable and vibrant, like those people who were born to dance, born to build, born to lead. We all have a purpose – the French call it, Raison d’être, “reason for being”.
Our calling to this work comes from a strong conviction in the critical role of nonprofits, community groups, dedicated citizens and their dutiful service to the causes important to them and their communities. We’ve been fortunate to work with many nonprofits, volunteer boards, sector professionals and community members to increase their effectiveness, elevate their causes and ultimately help them achieve their goals and missions. Fair Winds Consulting was founded in honor of the juncture of where our passion meets purpose and we are dedicated to the work of charting your course to success – no matter the headwind.
“Purpose is a soft virtue — but it’s what gives you steel in your spine.”
