“Hiring Jeffrey Sobel Consulting was the right decision at the right time. We needed a Development team that could take our development efforts to the next level and help us start to transition from a founding Board of Trustees to a Governance and Fundraising Board. We also needed to work with development experts who could help us hone our skills in this area and learn more about creating a development department. They helped us keep on track with our goals and transition right on schedule to our own full-time in house Development Director whom they helped us hire. We continue to work with JSC on specific projects such as grant writing and event management. The JSC team is smart, experienced, creative and fun to work with. From day one I felt their commitment to our mission and dedication to our cause.” – Mary Robinson, Founder and Executive Director, Imagine

“Jeffrey Sobel Consulting helped set up our first junior board two years ago. Jeff set up the structure, recruited some of the initial members, and handled the first couple of meetings to get everything started. The junior board is one of the most successful ventures the Development Office has undertaken in recent years. We currently have approximately 20 members with 10 applicants being reviewed for membership. Members range from 22 to 40 years of age and work in organizations such as Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg, Alliance Bernstein, Morgan Stanley, and Bank of America. The junior board, recently renamed the Leadership Council raised more than $30,000 this year and conducted five volunteer events. Some of Jeff’s initial recruits are still on the board after two years.” – Linda Stutz, VP for Institutional Advancement, The Children’s Village
