Vertical Strategies 
Vertical Strategies began with the passion to assist nonprofits to achieve their potential when they do not have the capacity internally to do so themselves.

Using Colorado and national networks to create business, Vertical Strategies began to take life when the need became too overwhelming to ignore.  Vertical Strategies exists to provide services to elevate nonprofits so they can achieve a culture of health in their respective communities.
Our Mission:
We cultivate space for capacity, restore ecosystems, and shift paradigms with partners in meaningful change.
Our Vision:
We will be a catalyst for tipping the scale toward justice and equity through dignity and respect.
