Credera and Colorado Succeeds work together to drive community impact

Credera’s mission is to make an extraordinary impact on our people, our clients, and our communities. In the realm of corporate social responsibility, partnerships between businesses and nonprofit organizations play a pivotal role in driving meaningful change.  

One partnership that embodies this ethos is the collaboration between Credera and Colorado Succeeds. Colorado Succeeds initially engaged Credera through Credera’s Nonprofit Consulting Leadership Program (NCLP) in 2022, and has blossomed into a multi-year partnership that’s a win-win for both organizations. This partnership not only benefits the Colorado community but fosters professional growth and fulfillment between our organizations.

Colorado Succeeds at a glance 

Colorado Succeeds is a coalition of business leaders with a vision to radically improve education and training outcomes for all learners. Its members are building a system where learners are educated to their greatest potential, employers can recruit homegrown talent, and policymakers are responsive to critical needs.  

Through policies and programs that center students and families facing systemic inequities, Colorado Succeeds works to remove barriers to accessing opportunities and resources they need to reach their greatest potential.  

About the partnership  

While the work Credera does for clients is important and meaningful, it's not enough for that to be our only focus as a firm. Serving our communities and making a difference in the lives of people who are circumstantially blocked from reaching their full potential provides a deeper and longer lasting purpose. 

That is why we’ve created the NCLP. This pro bono consulting program has grown into a nationwide initiative that provides an opportunity to build deeper relationships with several of our nonprofit partners and allows junior Credera practitioners the chance to scope and deliver short-term, end-to-end client engagements. 

“We’re immensely grateful to have Credera as a key partner to us in that work,” said Rachel Van Brocklin, director of communications at Colorado Succeeds. 

This sentiment was echoed by Ashley Andersen, vice president of corporate relations at Colorado Succeeds, who highlighted Credera's unique approach to pro bono projects. Ashley noted that Credera views such endeavors as opportunities for work-based learning, aligning perfectly with Colorado Succeeds' values. 

Credera Community Impact (CCI), Credera’s philanthropic arm that sponsors the NCLP program, exists to make a difference in the lives of people, primarily students and nonprofits, who are circumstantially blocked from reaching their full potential. With CCI’s focus on STEM education and awareness, coupled with Colorado Succeeds' mission to create change alongside educators, policy leaders, and community partners, this partnership unlocks the possibility for real change at scale.   

Impact for the long term  

Looking ahead, both parties envision a future marked by continued collaboration and innovation.  

"Everybody tries to find opportunities to give back to their community,” Credera Principal Brad Krumwiede said. “The way in which we want to make an impact is bringing our craft, our expertise, and our practitioners to help grow an organization in a nonprofit space.” 

Partnerships like Credera’s with Colorado Succeeds serve as catalysts for positive change. By merging corporate expertise with nonprofit missions, these alliances transcend traditional boundaries, ushering in a new era of collective impact and social responsibility.  

“Our relationship with Credera really extends even beyond the pro bono,” Andersen said. “It’s really just how do we have a kitchen cabinet of experts that are just one call away to be able to help us think through our biggest challenges.” 

Through shared values, mutual respect, and a commitment to driving meaningful change, we are creating a future where communities thrive, businesses prosper, and individuals flourish.   

“It’s a win for our organization that gets to benefit from their expertise, and it’s a win for Credera because they’re able to nurture their talent internally,” said Andersen.
