From Our Clients

Convergent brought us outside experience and expertise we didn’t have. They helped us close the door and solidify large commitments that were crucial to our campaign. Plus, our Convergent project director was nothing short of amazing. It felt like he was a part of our staff. He invested in understanding our entire program of work. His attention to detail was excellent, and he really got things done on this campaign before I even asked.

The feasibility study done by Convergent involved our local leadership like no other study we’ve had in the past (and we’ve worked with three other firms). It was a much more tailored approach to the community, which made a big difference in the level of input received.
