Feedback from a few of our 2015 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
