Community Consulting Teams of Boston (CCT) amplifies the impact of Boston-area nonprofits through pro bono management consulting projects performed by teams of experienced MBAs from top-tier business schools.
Now in his 5th year at CCT, Peter Sanborn progressed from first year Team Member for The Philanthropic Initiative project to Project Manager for the MASS Design Group and then a Board member overseeing strategic planning. In the current cycle, he is also Sponsor for the All Hands Volunteers project.
Peter is a Stanford Business School alumnus who works by day as a fund manager investing in international stocks for Oechsle International Advisors. He says that CCT is his antidote for the alienation he feels when reflecting on the world’s many pressing issues. For him, CCT provides the tangible satisfaction of “giving back” more directly through a specific organization’s mission, rather than the usual arm’s length method of writing checks — though that’s important, too!
Along with colleagues on the CCT Board, Peter has thought deeply about what makes for a great volunteer experience. He and the board believe that volunteers are most fulfilled if they can: make an impact on the client’s organization, have fun and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow volunteers, learn and grow personally, and feel they are part of a well-managed, thoughtful organization.
CCT is pleased to announce the client consulting grants awarded for the 2015 project cycle. With submissions from so many worthy applicants this year, it was a difficult task to select our nonprofit project lineup. We want to extend heartfelt thanks to all applicants. Clients for 2015 include:
