The Association of Nonprofit Specialists is pleased to announce that the Foundation Center has once again asked us to help coordinate educational workshops for its constituents.
These 90-minute pro-bono sessions will be held throughout 2018, and typically attract 30-50 nonprofit professional attendees.
Here is what some past facilitators from our network had to say about their experience:
“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
