About Us

Your Growth is Our Mission

The Catalyst Center is a management consulting and training firm working with nonprofits to improve their effectiveness through private consultation as well as through our Nonprofit Management Training Series.

Launched in 2000, The Catalyst Center began as an extension of the accounting and management services of, Bee, Bergvall & Co., Certified Public Accountants.  Bee, Bergvall & Co. provides accounting and auditing services to organizations of all sizes and missions across the region.  Realizing the need for concentrated consulting and educational programming for the nonprofit sector in Bucks County, the Bucks County Center for Nonprofit Management was formed.  The Center very quickly saw its influence move beyond Bucks County and later re-branded as the Catalyst Center for Nonprofit Management.
