True to our tagline, much of our work is done in collaboration with other nonprofit capacity building organizations. Our valued partners from across the city and the sector host, promote, co-produce, and/or sponsor our events and offerings. We also recruit nonprofit specialists to support their efforts.

Feedback from a few of our recent collaborators:

“Presenting at the Foundation Center was not only a completely enjoyable experience, but as a consultant it produced a lot of attention for my services and expertise.  Almost immediately, I secured a very prominent nonprofit as a client to build a major gift program and we continue to work together to this day.”
– Peter Heller, Peter J. Heller Consulting

“Working with ANS has opened me up to a valuable business development opportunity. As a result of speaking at the Foundation Center, I have been able to further my relationship with this established nonprofit service provider, while also introducing my work to a completely new group of people. Since the workshop I’ve already had several requests for assistance and follow-up with a couple of serious business connections.”
– Bruce Arbit, Melarbit Partners

“I thoroughly enjoyed my session teaching under the auspices of the ANS/Foundation Center. The participants represented a wide range of organizations, experience and interest. They were enthusiastic, asked excellent questions, and demonstrated a high level of engagement. I would absolutely do it again.”
– Marian Z. Stern, Projects in Philanthropy
