Like any olive grove, we have a history.
Olive Grove President, Emily Hall, planted the first seed in the grove in 2002, when she founded her own firm
to continue her focus on helping organizations and individuals in the nonprofit sector realize their full potential.
In 2007, the firm was re-branded Olive Grove Consulting. Through great work with clients and collaboration,
the brand quickly grew. In 2009, Olive Grove began developing the network structure that’s unique to our
company. This grove of trusted consultants and firms with diverse specialties and deep knowledge continues
to grow and evolve in order to meet the changing needs of an equally diverse client base.
But why “Olive Grove?”
To really wrap your head around our name, it helps to know a few things about olive trees. These trees can
live for hundreds, even thousands of years. If tended thoughtfully and skillfully, they’ll remain productive
throughout their lives, providing meaningful and sustaining products to many cultures. If an olive tree is
damaged or even completely destroyed, its robust root system can regenerate a whole new tree in its place.
So to us, the olive grove is a living testament to the strength of the individual and the community. And we
think of our work as the thoughtful and skillful tending that keeps organizations productive and meaningful for
years. We provide the robust roots, deep wisdom and vast experience necessary to help you transform your
organization into a more vibrant and valuable contributor to society.
