About Us

Who We Are

The Lee Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to more: More collaboration, more clarity, more compassion, more impact.

In the communities we serve, our work is the catalyst for inspired leaders to come together, build stronger charities, and focus the social sector on solving the most difficult civic challenges.

Our mission is...

To serve and strengthen organizations and individuals who share a commitment to building great communities.

Founded in 1997 in honor of Charlotte corporate and civic leader Bill Lee, The Lee Institute provides facilitation, consulting and training for nonprofits, governments and community groups across the country, primarily in the Carolina's.

Our core services include:

We believe passionately in the power of civic engagement, and we know that when people engage in well-designed, informed and inclusive processes, they can create authentic visions and strategies for their own organizations and communities.

Our experience as a nonprofit makes us uniquely empathetic to our clients and partners, and our expertise in process design, organizational development and leadership training makes The Lee Institute a trusted collaborator.

We partner closely with our clients to build creative, customized solutions to advance their missions, always emphasizing collaboration, inclusion and respect for all stakeholders.

We invite you to learn more about our consulting services and the Charlotte chapter of the American Leadership Forum, and to let us know how we can be helpful as you, too, work for the common good.
