About ViTreo

Our philosophy is to support our clients to become the best in class in the nonprofit sector.


ViTreo was created out of a desire to better serve our clients.

By significantly expanding the expertise, experiences and specialized services available within a large team, ViTreo is poised to deliver unparalleled skills and greater innovation to our clients.

Rooted in the word vitreous, “vitreo” is a Latin prefix meaning clear or resembling glass. Vitreo is not in the dictionary. ViTreo is pronounced Vi-TREY-oh. 

We look forward to working with you as, together, we transform fundraising. 

We envision a nonprofit sector that leads all other sectors in how they govern themselves, in how they live their mission, and in how they perform as a fundraising organization.

Our Story

The three founding partners of ViTreo, Andrea McManus, Scott Decksheimer, and Vincent Duckworth have been friends, professional colleagues, and sometime competitors for the better part of the last 20 years. Through all of this, we have shared an aspiration to not only continue to provide outstanding service but to push for an enlarged stable of fundraising and leadership services with which to better serve our clients. 

Bringing together our 40 years of combined consulting firm experience and expertise into one company accomplishes this long-held goal. In addition to our core services, our clients have told us they want access to specialty search services, philanthropic naming, and deeper research services. They also want access to a wider range of advice, counsel, experience, and expertise. By combining the talents of all three of our existing firms, we are now in a position to deliver on these desires.

We look forward to engaging those who have been with us in the past and those who are with us now as we write the next chapter in our journey to support Canada's top nonprofits.
