What We Do


In most small non-profits, staffing is small, finances are stretched, and to do lists are long as staff members each wear many hats in pursuit of mission delivery. When there is a vacancy on the team, a new fundraising program to launch, or a need to make up a shortfall in revenue, you can feel like one of those plate spinning acts in the circus; running from priority to screaming priority, giving it just enough attention to keep it from crashing.

At Altimeter, we specialize in multi-faceted support. Leigh Reynolds spent twenty years in the trenches, manning the front lines of non-profit insanity; overseeing the details of loading 6 semi-trucks full of bike tour supplies one day, facilitating an executive committee meeting the next, then managing a gala the following weekend. From leading meetings on Capital Hill to coordinating ham radio operators; cultivating relationships with 14 year old team captains and million dollar donors alike. All of this honed her unique ability to envision how all the pieces come together at 30,000 and then work with the team to execute the right tactics to make the vision a reality on the ground.

Leigh formed Altimeter Consulting with a passion to help organizations achieve their mission more effectively and expediently. 

When you need some expert help in a myriad of areas and you can't afford a highly targeted (and often very expensive) consultant, Altimeter can help. Whether it is launching a new event from scratch, transitioning an organization to a new identity and brand, leading your group or team through an in-depth communication strengths training, covering for a staffing vacancy at a critical time, or a little bit of all of the above, Altimeter can deliver with long-range vision and detailed execution.
