About Us

Management Cornerstones Inc. has invested its entrepreneurial spirit in helping

nonprofits and their communities flourish. The development and management of

nonprofit organizations and support of the sector’s infrastructure have been the

hallmarks of our services.



Management Cornerstones Inc. grew from a nine-year, private consulting practice of Patricia Wyzbinski, and was officially launched in Chicago in April 1984.  Co-founders Patricia Wyzbinski and Scott Gelzer have provided training and consultation services to over 4,000 nonprofits nationwide. In 1997, the firm moved north and re-established itself in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The office is currently located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.


Our practice has been distinguished by:

    • Using technology to create new tools, including podcasts and phone apps, to support organizations and the sector
    • Developing partnerships with businesses, educational institutions, foundations, and nonprofits
    • Creating infrastructure institutions for the betterment of nonprofits throughout the community

We use a practical hands-on approach designed to stimulate growth, understanding and empowerment. We spawn creative ideas that strengthen nonprofit organizations and the sector through: consultation, training, publications, and management audits. We have developed groundbreaking technology-based resources to support the work of nonprofits, their staffs and volunteers, and the sector.
