“Michael Woodnorth and Woodnorth Advisory have been essential to helping me confidently take the next steps in my benefit company’s seed round. His insight, expertise and experience in the impact investing space really helped us shape our approach, and his excellent research helped strengthen our case. Michael is a pleasure to work with and an excellent resource. I only wish we’d met him sooner!”

“Wow!  Very impressive and proves out this is a viable business model.  Great to see that many of our thought processes were backed up by the data.  I can only imagine this material is worth its weight in gold to present to investors.” 

Melonie Levernier

“Michael was an integral part of establishing organizational structure to our nonprofit. He evaluated the needs of Faithfully Restored and structured our meeting so that every exercise led to a productive conversation. Not only did we leave the meeting with tangible goals and strategies, Michael provided the steps necessary for us to achieve our goals and move our nonprofit forward. We would highly recommend Michael to help take your organization to the next level.”

Jamie Heard

“Michael was very professional and invested in the project. His work will directly impact our budding organization in a positive way by generating revenue and contributing to our sustainability. The research was thorough and easy to understand. He approached the project with a fresh outlook and provided a long term revenue projection and recommendations that our committee was very impressed by. I would highly recommend working with Michael for any program/non-profit that needs a comprehensive pricing strategy for their products and services.”

About Us

Woodnorth Advisory helps social impact organizations achieve sustainability and scale through strategic growth consulting and capital advisory services.

Woodnorth Advisory was founded by Michael Woodnorth, a former investment banker and MBA, who spent several years in social enterprise consulting, impact investing and nonprofit management. During this varied career, he learned that for-profit organizations had mastered effectiveness and nonprofit organizations had mastered impact, but the two worlds were almost completely siloed from one another. He founded Woodnorth Advisory on the premise that there is great value to be created by integrating the best practices from both.

Woodnorth Advisory brings business expertise and an impact lens to help you address the challenges of scaling your mission-driven organization.
