After decades of leading non-profit organizations, DRi’s founders set out to create an executive search firm designed especially for the non-profit sector. We know that our non-profit clients need us to deliver transformative candidates quickly, and we meet that challenge: 97% of our candidates come from our own active outreach and we present them within 60 days.But we believe the non-profit sector deserves more than that. In addition to recruiting high-quality candidates, our searches engage stakeholders in ways that lay the groundwork for the selected candidate’s ultimate success. While recruiting the selected candidate, we also pay careful attention to each client’s reputation among the many high-quality candidates who are not selected. And we remain available to advise our clients long after a search concludes.We can do these things because we have an unparalleled understanding of the non-profit sector. We understand what it is like to work with stakeholders, not customers; to build a fundraising program from the ground up; to imagine a sustainable way to serve those who are overlooked or a novel way to address an intractable problem. We move fluently between staffing and strat...egy. That’s how we add significant value and save significant expense. DRi has built the resources to deliver on our promise:
