FSG is a mission-driven consulting firm for leaders in search of large-scale, lasting social change. Through our combination of customized services, powerful ideas, and learning communities, we help foundations, businesses, nonprofits, and governments around the world accelerate progress. Here's what we believe:
We need new approaches
Current approaches to addressing today’s most intractable problems are failing us and must be replaced by new ones that better fit the realities of how social change happens.
We live in a complex world
Social issues are often embedded in complex systems that defy predictable solutions. Change is possible only if we understand and support interdependencies and momentum shifts within a system.
We need to work across sectors
Most of the problems we face are simply too big for any one entity to solve. Making social progress and achieving impact depends on collaboration among civil society, government, and business.
We need strong partnerships and ideas
To be successful in any pursuit, we must work together, build strong partnerships, and lift up the compelling ideas and successes of others.
Above all, we believe that real change is possible and that tomorrow doesn’t have to be like today. Passionate leaders with new insights and heightened aspirations, willing to work across the divides between philanthropy, social enterprises, government, and business, can transform our world.
