We share our clients' ambitions. We work to understand their reality and deliver true results—focusing on strategic decisions and practical actions. And we align our incentives with our clients’ objectives, so they know we’re in it together. The client stories below are just a few examples of how we've helped organizations realize, and often exceed, their goals.
Client example: StudentsFirst
Successful launch and ongoing support for education reform organization
Bain helped develop the strategy and business plan for launching StudentsFirst, an organization founded by Michelle Rhee, former chancellor of the District of Columbia Public Schools. StudentsFirst is leading a national grassroots movement to advocate for common sense reforms that accelerate student achievement, and Bain has committed to an ongoing partnership with them.
Client example: Education Nonprofit
Repeat results for a national nonprofit dedicated to eliminating educational inequity
Bain initially helped to increase efficiency by identifying around $3 million in annual cost savings that would reduce costs without undermining the impact of the organization. We then further partnered with them to develop a strategy and operational plan to accelerate progress of their alumni into high impact educational leadership roles.
Client example: KIPP Bay Area Schools
Extensive partnership bolsters regional charter schools
Our San Francisco office has established a multi-faceted partnership with KIPP Bay Area Schools—including case work, volunteering, fundraising and office education—through which we helped develop their ten-year growth and fundraising strategy.
