We are passionate about our mission to inspire positive transformation and change in the nonprofit sector.

Make the most of CCE’s wide-ranging knowledge and expertise with these handy Cass CCE toolkits and guides designed to help individuals and organisations.

Peering over the Precipice

This toolkit is aimed at charity trustees and executives who want to consider where they are on the organisational lifecycle curve. It will enable them to explore what impact the current environment is having on their organisation and on the economic and social value that it creates.

A toolkit for nonprofits to reinvent and thrive

By drawing on Cass CCE’s cumulative knowledge, derived from in-depth work with our students, delegates and clients, we offer a health check to revitalise and a framework to consider reinvention for greater beneficiary impact.

We ask the tough questions to help you consider if your organisation is already in decline. We provide the equally tough answers that will ensure that the decisions taken are in the best interest of your organisation’s mission, before that of its existence.
