Marc Vogl has worked in the trenches at grass-roots and mid-size nonprofits, experienced the wild ride of high-tech start-ups, and gained global perspective on the social sector from within one of the nation’s largest private foundations.

These combined experiences drive Marc’s passion for working with nonprofits and philanthropists to address social problems and enrich communities creatively and systematically.

Vogl Consulting is based in San Francisco and works with clients in the Bay Area and around the country.

What our clients say:

What I appreciate most about working with Marc is his pragmatism and logical approach. I can’t recommend Marc strongly enough if you are looking for meaningful guidance on organizational strategy, capacity building, or effectiveness.  – David Archuletta, Joe Goode Performance Group

We had the great fortune to work with Marc on several areas of orchestra development. Marc came to us with the ability to listen thoroughly and understand the orchestra’s creative and administrative culture; he has guided us with incision, new ideas and good humor. Marc brought us the focus we needed to develop strategies and actions in the areas of foundation, individual and corporate development–and even performance. – Laurie Cohen, Mill Valley Philharmonic

Marc listened carefully, researched meticulously, and provided penetrating insights that have helped us instigate real and necessary change. – Brad Ericson, Theatre Bay Area

An invaluable facilitator for us; he was flexible in his approach, detailed and thorough with his follow through; and outstanding in working with a large group of people. – KC Price, Frameline

The best part of working with Marc was his devotion to making the work meaningful. We were fearful of wasting money on an off-the-shelf approach to our strategic development, but the power of Marc’s work was to take us through a process in which every step was meaningful, useful and impactful.  – Adam Fong, Emerging Arts Professionals
