Consulting for Nonprofit Organizations


Commitment to Nonprofits

Collaborative Solutions brings over a dozen years of experience working with both public and privately-funded institutions. We understand the unique needs nonprofits face in terms of compliance, accountability reporting and fundraising in the new global economy. Having deployed Workday’s Finance and HCM solutions to more nonprofits than any other partner, we understand how to leverage these solutions to help reduce costs, increase compliance, and keep you mission-focused.


Our team has a proven track record of helping nonprofits successfully deploy and get the most out of Workday and Tidemark.  Our deep experience with nonprofits includes work with the Masonic Villages, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Teach for America, WNET (New York Public Media), and the ASPCA.

We realize that members and patrons demand greater accountability for every dollar donated. Each dollar spent on internal operations is a dollar that could have been spent on an organization’s true member- or community-serving objectives. We are particularly proud of our track record in the nonprofit space, helping these unique organizations move away from dated and cumbersome processes and into the cloud. With Workday’s unified Finance and HCM solutions and Tidemark’s Finance and Performance Management solutions, we can help nonprofits gain improved operational efficiency, reduce costs, deliver more accurate reporting, and ultimately enable these organizations to stay focused on their core missions.

Their solutions-oriented insight into our processes showed their command of the Workday technology and its functionality.

  • “This project was a huge undertaking for the Human Resources and Payroll teams and we encountered a lot of challenges along the way. The team was tireless in the pursuit to ensure a successful implementation. We are thrilled to have a single data source of record, owning and managing the system in house to ensure compliance and quality so that we can now focus on the important work we do at WNET. We appreciate our partnership with our partner Collaborative Solutions who utilized their Workday knowledge and expertise to support our team in taking our system live on time.” 

    Charlene Shapiro, VP of HR - WNET



WNET needed a single, unified system of record for its HR and Financials functions. They chose Workday as their new HR and Financials transformation system, and selected Collaborative Solutions to lead the phased deployment.
