Keegan Flaherty of Flaherty Consulting is dedicated to maximizing the growth potential and efficiency of nonprofit organizations. My goal is to assist nonprofits in realizing their potential through consulting services based on recognized best practices; and, as a result, offer assistance and support to organizations to create a more significant impact in their communities.
I understand that your organization is unique - that is why I work individually with you to tailor a plan that works best for your organization. My goal is to produce efficient and effective results, and therefore, I am flexible in the services offered to achieve that goal.

The Missoula County Community Justice Department was created through the merger of existing county programs and departments that support the work of the legal justice system. Each program had separate visions, missions, goals, and staff. Through a year-long strategic planning process, stakeholder interviews, and facilitated discussions, Keegan help us focus our efforts, build a bigger vision to that serves the diverse needs of our community, all while centering the outcomes that we are working for – a just justice system that upholds human dignity regardless of where in the system you find yourself – a defendant, a victim, or a justice system professional. We now have a concrete plan for moving our work forward and have deeper and more productive relationships with all of our partners. 

— Shantelle Gaynor, Director



Assessments provide the foundation from which to plan future programming or implement changes in an organization. I offer program evaluation and organizational assessments that engage stakeholders in a meaningful way to result in actionable recommendations to further your impact.



A strategic plan, premised on the knowledge, experience, and input of an organization's stakeholders 

provides a roadmap for your organization's future. 


There is no one-size-fits-all approach because every organization is unique. What I find most effective is for your plan to be outcomes-focused to ensure your plan truly moves your work forward by the success measures that matter most.




Good nonprofit board governance is about providing strategic leadership and focusing on the processes for making  decisions that will continue to advance an organization’s principles and mission.


I offer support and guidance in enhancing board and governance skills, policies, procedures, structure, and more.



Good meetings are key to making progress. I structure meetings to create a neutral atmosphere, enhance an organization’s ability to focus on the principal issues at hand, and utilize limited time most effectively.
