Cynthesis Consulting offers strategic planning, communications, evaluation, and program development services for a wide range of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations in the U.S. and internationally. With more than 25 years of experience in the social sector — as consultant, senior staff person, connector, and thought leader — Principal Cynthia Gibson uses a highly personalized, collaborative, and results-focused approach that values straight talk, substance, and efficiency over jargon, complicated processes, and shiny objects.

Cindy worked magic with us! She pushed us to clarify and simplify our values and ensure that there was consistency across all of our work around those values.  We initially engaged her to strengthen our communications but ended up with much stronger vision and strategy.

We needed a communications strategy tailored to the particular needs of a small, private foundation not a cookie-cutter approach.We needed someone who knew our unique challenges and opportunities and found that expertise in Cynthia. She not only gets what we do; she knows the landscape and helped us zero in on what was doable in a real- world context.
