Lionel C. Johnson
President, Pacific Pension Institute
"After our work with Third Plateau, we really ramped up our ability to expand organizational capacity, moving from just one part-time paid employee to two full-time employees and are about to hire a third."
Executive Director, Teach Access
"Third Plateau provided a safe space for me to think creatively and expansively as a social entrepreneur. They asked me the hard questions that helped me refine my idea and articulate the change I wanted to see in the world in a way that it could be shared with others. The business plan we created was catalytic for our work, capturing our strategy to disrupt the way philanthropy relates to and invests in Indigenous Peoples and serving as a tool for us to attract significant investment.”
President & CEO, NDN Collective
"The landscape research and stakeholder interviews Third Plateau conducted created an evidence base for our idea, giving us confidence that our services were being responsive to real gaps and needs in the field."
Managing Director, Population Change Institute

Today, we serve 4,000 in 63 schools across seven counties. Their team has guided us at each transitional point, working side by side to help plan, build, and problem solve.
