“With the help of Rabinowitz Partners, we quickly discovered that development is about more than raising money. It is about innovation, knowing your organization and building successful relationships with all your members — the board, current donors and future supporters. Richmond brought this all to ACNJ. With her guidance, we strengthened our organization in several ways: changed our name and look to better reflect our mission; hosted a series of small events to introduce ACNJ to new communities; strengthened board development and almost tripled our base of supporters. And yes — she also succeeded in raising funds from new individual, corporate and foundation donors!”Cecilia Zalkind
