Tatum’s Mid-Atlantic Practice Partners with Venture Philanthropy Partners
WASHINGTON, June 17, 2009 — Tatum, LLC, the nation’s largest executive services firm focused on providing solutions for the Office of the CFO, is collaborating with Venture Philanthropy Partners (VPP), a philanthropic investment organization, to grant financial leadership services to nonprofit organizations in the National Capital Region (DC Metro).
The relationship between Tatum and VPP gives non-profits access to seasoned CFOs, CIOs and other financial and technology leaders who voluntarily offer hands-on, pro-bono expertise to organizations in need. VPP concentrates investments of money, expertise and personal contacts for nonprofits serving children and youth of low-income families in the D.C. area, and is a liaison between Tatum and the nonprofit organizations in its portfolio.
“Organizations in the not-for-profit community have long served as Tatum clients, so it only makes sense for us to share resources and offer financial guidance when they need it most,” said Peter A.S. Pfeiffer, managing partner of Tatum’s Mid-Atlantic practice. “Many nonprofits are struggling with a lack of funding for programs and infrastructure during this recession, so we are taking our philanthropic efforts to the next level by allowing our professionals to directly affect change through this innovative approach.”
“Access to C-level executives who are eager to provide pro-bono services is an essential need for our investment portfolio organizations, particularly in this economy,” said Eleanor Rutland, Chief Operating Officer with VPP. “Tatum is fulfilling critical needs for organizations, and it’s a strong statement to make such a contribution during these challenging times. Tatum’s investment demonstrates their deep commitment to our community.”
Tatum is donating the same executive expertise delivered to clients, including financial and technology leadership services, strategic planning, liquidity protection, regulatory services, restructuring and more.
