Welcome to THRiVE

Are you are ready to implement
the Impact Method™ at your nonprofit,

but need support and accountability along the way?

You’ve realized there’s a better way and it all starts with embracing the Impact Method™

The Impact Method™ is the game changing framework that you are ready to implement, but despite your optimism, you're going to need some support in getting your team on board.

When you implement the Impact Method™, you are likely to experience rapid growth. That's when you'll benefit from additional advice and guidance from experts in the latest strategies for marketing, fundraising, automation, and scalability of your organization.

If you...
  • are excited to learn but unsure of where to start.
  • understand that you will only truly benefit from the learning the  Impact Method™ if you implement it. 
  • have what it takes to stick to the plan if you have some guidance and support.
Then it's time to...
  • learn and implement the Impact Method™, the operating framework specifically made for nonprofits.
  • and implement it with THRiVE, where you will get the support you need to make this your first best year ever.

“You've gotten us to put on "our big girl" pants, to look beyond the day-to-day and to act as if this organization will succeed and live on in the future and to take the steps necessary to make that happen."

“Sarah's team at PivotGround worked with me to feel empowered and supported. My feelings of being overwhelmed shifted to feeling successful.

This has all helped me see my organization grow with a strong foundation. I see our members being more engaged, and I see my colleagues taking pride in the work that they are doing."

I'm Sarah Olivieri a Nonprofit Strategist and Founder of PivotGround. In over 15 years of working with nonprofits both as an Executive Director and Consultant, I've found that the Impact Method™ is key to getting more time, money and impact.

However, while implementing the Impact Method™, Executive Director’s get busy. Fires occur, budgets get cut and people lose their jobs—as a result implementation is pushed to the bottom of the “to-do” list.

I created the Impact Method™ to address the real problems that nonprofits are facing and those are capacity and strategy BUT if you don’t implement the Impact Method™, nothing changes.

Introducing the Impact Method™

Your human-service nonprofit exists to make a positive impact in the lives of the people you serve. But how do you get there, anyway?

We developed our proprietary Impact Method™ as a way to break down your big audacious goals into clear, easy-to-understand components. When you’re feeling scattered and burnt out, we use The Impact Method™ to show you how achieving your goals is entirely possible.


We'll unlock your organizations true capacity and teach you how to harness it to its full potential so that you can be energized and focused and you pursue a bold strategy.


How does your mission break down into manageable goals? With our Impact Strategy™ and Continuous Action Plan™, you'll ensure you’re always making clear progress and know exactly what's to focus on next.


By taking decisive action and observing the results, you can build on your successes and plan for your challenges to make sure you’re consistently moving towards your ultimate goal.

“In working with you I have been able to harness your experience and ideas in moving the agency forward. Your ability to map out the complete agency on paper helps me to visualize what I couldn’t before.
