Our work with Anne has been amazing. She makes the daunting task of fundraising accessible for her clients. Fully versed in the breadth of development, from CMS to Board engagement, from donor cultivation to special events, Anne ensures her clients feel confident and are able to successfully move their fund raising efforts forward.
Anne came to us at the right time as we were rebuilding our development efforts. Her careful guidance and coaching helped me, the board and the staff move to the next level through the development of a fundraising plan and helping us bring on a new director of development. I valued her as a coach, cheerleader and thought partner.
Thank you for leading another truly engaging workshop for our Board members and staff. The thoughts and ideas discussed were on a new level for New York Edge - one that just a few short years ago, we aspired to reach. I am convinced that the Board and staff will work together to make even more progress in cultivating new relationships with our current donors, parents, students, staff, and prospects.
She is a trusted confidant and wonderfully loyal to her clients. She is ethical, reliable, and flexible. She is the ideal consultant, even letting you know when she feels you no longer need her services!
It would be hard to overstate the transformational impact that working with Anne has had for Open House New York. In a few short years, she has played a critical role in helping to expand and refine our development activities, which in turn has made possible a significant increase in the amount of programming we are able to present. In addition, she has been a key advisor in deepening the skills and commitment of Open House New York’s board. Quite simply, she is an invaluable member of the Open House New York team.
Anne Townsend is a rare find. Her sensitivity to individual personalities, her grasp of the big picture, and her knowledge of all aspects of fundraising allowed her to assume an active role in supporting and improving every element of our program. She is smart, creative on so many levels, effective in small groups and large, always pleasant, hard working, and truly committed to making her clients successful.
