Who We Are

We are tech, process, and operations experts with over 25+ years of nonprofit leadership and consulting experience. Our fluency in the needs and nuances of nonprofits allows us to serve as translators, facilitators, and storytellers, helping organizations bridge the strategic gap between where they are and where they want to be. We thrive at the nexus of progressive missions, the humans who love them, and the tools they use to change the world. We are proudly Queer-owned and operated.

Our Equity Commitments

Skeleton Key Strategies is committed to the principles of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Accessibility, Justice, and Belonging in both philosophy and action. As a Queer-owned and operated business, we work with progressive clients who contribute to solutions at the intersection of multiple vectors of equity and justice – racial, gender, disability, sexual identity and expression, reproductive, economic, environmental, animal, etc. – and strive to live up to our obligations as allies and advocates, both on and off the clock.

As a company, we make regular contributions to Black- and Indigenous-led causes, and mandate ongoing professional EDI education for all members of our consulting team.
