Mission Statement

Third Sector Services is dedicated to strengthening nonprofit organizations.

History of Third Sector Services, LLC

Third Sector Services formed in 1998 after Pat Lewis and Russ Cargo worked together on a US State Department tour teaching nonprofit management in Turkey and Israel. The feedback they received from the training and the enjoyment they experienced from working together sparked the creation of TSS. Pat and Russ recognized the potential of merging their collective experiences and the value to nonprofits in having a team providing consulting services. In 2005 Jane Kornblut joined TSS and added her extensive experience as a specialist in nonprofit boards. In addition to their consulting experience, all three principals have experience as nonprofit executive directors and all three have taught nonprofit management graduate courses in top university nonprofit centers; George Mason University, Virginia Tech, and Arizona State University.

The TSS team comes from the nonprofit sector. Together they bring a combination of executive experience, teaching experience, and extensive consulting experience to our clients. TSS is a firm with a long-standing and strong commitment to strengthening nonprofit organizations and with the ability to do so.
