At CMCS we believe in non profits. We know they make our communities better. We admire their volunteer Boards and their committed staff. We want them all to be great. So our vision is well run non profits and our mission is to provide them with the best products and services available. On our site you will find - Information about what we do;  Case studies;  More about Tom Little and Nancy Moulsdale; and Testimonials. Our site also offers resources - Tom's free booklets and free radio clips, as well as his magnus opus - Tom Little's BIG Ideas for Non Profit Boards - 190 pages of great information for Boards of Directors and management. Not free but a great value. As a bonus, we even provide Tom's BIG Idea of the Week newsletter, which you can find below.

What Our Clients Say

​"I wanted to thank both of you again for being at our AGM last night. You did a great job and as always Tom, you really know how to handle a crowd.  Nancy we also appreciated the kind words you said about our agency.  It has been a pleasure working with both of you and we really appreciate the great job you did in helping us develop our new Strategic Plan."

Andy Rotsma, Executive Director, New Visions Toronto ​

"I just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you. We needed that reassurance from a "Board expert" that we were not just flying by the seat of our pants."

Board member, ​Parents for Children’s Mental Health

"We are delighted with this process and with the product. Thanks for getting us through this. It was fun and invigorating: not always the descriptors used for planning processes!"
