“Advance NYC is the best hire we ever made.”

Board Leader, National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City

“Advance NYC is less of an outside consultant and more a part of our team. From an executive leadership search, to training, to interim staffing, they quickly developed a strong rapport with our Trustees and staff to further our operations during a challenging moment of transition. Their extensive expertise helped not only to identify our operational weaknesses but also to provide practical steps to correct them—ensuring that our incoming Director of Development started the job on the right foot.”

Executive Leader, 2nd Stage Theater

"Our board of directors and executive staff are unanimous—the gala we produced with Advance NYC was our best ever. Throughout the process, the Advance NYC team was responsive to our needs, creative in their thinking and attentive to detail, which created an extraordinary event for us. The end result was an authentic reflection of our organization and the good work that we do around the world AND a successful fundraiser. I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Department Leader, Helen Keller International

“Pilobolus has had the distinct pleasure of working with Advance NYC on developing fundraising systems of all types during a period of critical growth for the company. The team brings expertise and style gained from years of diverse experience in the field. Able to listen to client needs and to customize their approach to planning, Advance is a singularly excellent resource and savvy counsel for this kind of work. Pilobolus's development infrastructure and event management have all been significantly advanced thanks to the work of Advance NYC.

“In less than a year, Advance NYC has already significantly transformed our fundraising capabilities. Their ability to implement new systems from the ground up, while simultaneously honoring what makes our arts organization unique, is very impressive. They have already helped us establish a solid structure for engaging institutional and individual donors that we previously lacked. And their assistance with cultivation events, communication with our email list, and donor maintenance has already proven very valuable.”

“As a one-person development department, it has been absolutely invaluable to have Advance NYC's guidance. I came into my position with very limited experience, and the training that I have received removed so much of the guesswork for me. Their best practices have helped me to understand my return on investment in terms of time, people, and money, and ultimately, how to maximize the impact of my work. Thank you, Advance NYC - you're a lifesaver!”
