About Greater Good Strategies

Greater Good Strategies was founded by Susannah Erler in 2015. Susannah realized that she was a nonprofit geek because over the years she was compelled to keep reading, experiencing and learning more and more about nonprofit organizations.

She has worked in the nonprofit sector for decades (including as a public broadcaster and in the areas of workforce development and education). In 2001 she earned her Masters in Business – Arts Administration Specialization; this is just a fancy way of saying she attended business school to learn the top techniques for helping nonprofit organizations survive and thrive. Susannah is also a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). Her “geek streak” compelled her to take (and pass) the CFRE exam which validates her knowledge about various fundraising techniques. Susannah obtained her Certified Associate in Project Management credential in 2011. This just means that if you have a project, she knows how to get it done in a high-quality efficient manner.

If you hear of a certificate to demonstrate “helpfulness,” please drop us a line – because that is at the core of our mission. Greater Good Strategies was founded by a nonprofit geek who just wants to help you do what you do to improve the world.
