    “Last fall, Lucille was retained to facilitate some sessions with our Board to improve our overall effectiveness and performance. She challenged us individually and collectively sharing her insights and experiences with other non-profit organizations, to enable us to become a high-performing team. We all benefitted from working with Lucille and came away from the experience reinvigorated and with a renewed sense of commitment.”

    President, Support Connection

    “I consulted Lucille for the purpose of understanding how to help clients evaluate non-profits for decisions about philanthropy and for creating a workshop on “Sustainable Wealth Transfer.” Lucille, was very helpful in increasing my awareness of success factors involved in organizational sustainability and integrity. She has extensive knowledge of: the importance of board selection, involvement, size and active contribution; donor communication strategies and community outreach; methodologies of donor engagement and how to evaluate donor return on investment in terms of impactful results. Lucille, in addition to being well grounded in the non-profit arena, is clearly dedicated to the growth and potential of non-profit organizations.”

    “I just wanted to take this opportunity to say, “Thank you” for your help. I believe this was the “big step” that we can use to really help to make the Foundation all that it can be. I look forward to the Foundation being of real service to women veterans all across the United States. Thank you for taking us to this point–we would not have done it as quickly without you.”

    “I have known and worked with Lucille for nearly 15 years. Lucille is a dedicated leader, for the companies she has worked for, for her private clients, and for the people she led and mentored through her work at the Association of Development Officers. Lucille is mission driven, results oriented, and strategy focused. She is well-connected in our Hudson Valley region, which helps her to help advance the missions of the organizations she represents and the causes she holds dear.
