Mission driven, purposeful people. They are inspiring, motivating and have the ability to galvanize people into action. They are donor-centric, relationship driven and keep their eye on the numbers. They usually like to track everything. They don’t forget the donor, ever. These are some of the qualities we look for when working on your non-profit searches.
Finding the right person that shares your vision and values requires effort and time away from you helping the community you serve. K. Russo Consulting knows how to find the best talent for your non-profit organization. We have the same passion you have for helping others. Our highly qualified search consultants utilize the information we learn about your mission and the people fulfilling it to find “only the best fit” candidate.
The American nonprofit sector employs approximately 11.9 million people (one out of every 10 working Americans), making it the third largest employment industry in the country, behind only retail and manufacturing. (Johns Hopkins Center for Civil Society).
K. Russo Consulting is here to fulfill all your non-profit recruitment needs:
We embrace a new way of doing things and because of our size and experience can put your needs and bottom line first. Assessing our non-profit clients’ culture and competencies, we work differently with different organizations to make sure you are getting specifically what you need. We do not offer a one size fits all service. We are always on the hunt for talented candidates that have experience in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors with a passion for doing good.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Karen Russo for over two decades. She is smart, pragmatic, customer focused and takes the time to dive deeply into any assignment she is given. She is a shrewd judge of character and has completed every single search I have worked with her on. Karen works quickly, provides updates and demonstrates curiosity, interest and understanding of the industry, organization, culture and fit of the companies that hire her.
I've fielded many calls from recruiters over the years but Karen was instantly different. Career change is a major life event, and I felt she took that seriously. After detailed conversations, it was apparent she knew her client’s goals and culture and discussed why she thought I was a fit. She was by my side, during multiple interviews and final negotiations. I wasn't actively looking, but she found me, made a great connection, and changed my life for the better. If she calls you, do yourself a favor, and listen. Thanks, Karen!
I would work with Karen Russo in a heartbeat again. I had never met a recruiter who so thoroughly understood the type of person it takes to work in a nonprofit organization and it takes a special kind of person. I’ve worked in the sector my whole career and there is a unique worldview that the right candidates possess and Karen has the ability to zero in on skills and character with precision and great acumen.
Karen Russo can be counted on to find me the just the right candidate. She has a true sense of my HR needs and has provided me with some truly insightful advice and counsel.
I have worked with Karen Russo for many years. All candidates presented to me... are rigorously screened and squarely on the mark. Karen’s added value lies in her ability to close the deal... thanks to Karen’s ability to brand our company and sell the benefits of our firm.
K. Russo Consulting does a superb job of understanding our space, educating themselves on our company, and ultimately delivering candidates that can fill the position technically and fit well with the company’s dynamics.
Having been in the recruiting function for 10+ years, I have dealt with numerous recruiting and search firms. I've found K. Russo Consulting the best as it relates to understanding the company's culture, the demanding need of filling positions in a short time frame, and presenting qualified candidates and not resumes.
I regard Karen as a consultant – someone who will go over and above to provide clients with strategic ideas that ultimately provide more efficiency.
