Clients agree: Janet Levine Consulting delivers

Janet Levine started fundraising in 1988, so by the time she launched her own consulting firm in 2007, she had extensive knowledge of what works—and what doesn’t—for nonprofits of all sizes. She’s built her business on giving clients exactly what they need to “level up” their efforts.  Her clients clearly agree:


I didn’t want to let another day go by without thanking you for the meaningful retreat on Thursday. Everyone agreed that we have new, “actionable” ideas and direction for how to approach developing our capacity in both fundraising and the Board.

“I just wanted to thank you personally for the great class yesterday. I walked away with so many ideas and plans. The class really helped me to clarify what I wanted to lay out for the next few months and make long range plans to help Friends be sustainable after our ED retires. I walked away yesterday feeling extremely positive about our future in Watts. I appreciate you sharing your incredible experience with us.”
