No churning. We get to the point.

We look for opportunities to design, innovate and take risks.

We find great enjoyment in the work we do.


Our Founding Story

"So what kind of work do you do?"

Rob Acton made a New Year's Resolution in 2012 that after answering this all-too-familiar greeting, he would respond with a different question: "What causes do you support?" The most common response from new acquaintances: a blank stare.

Despite exceptional skills, raw talent, unrelenting drive, and vast networks, few of these business leaders were leveraging their considerable resources to create stronger social good organizations and, in turn, more vibrant communities – even in the very places they lived.

Out of this experience, Cause Strategy Partners was born. Our passion is helping business professionals identify causes that resonate with their values and interests, ensuring that they bring the very best of themselves to the organizations they support. We are driven to help nonprofit organizations achieve their missions fueled by great leadership, great strategy, and most importantly, great results.
