Testimonials

“We had previously worked with Nonprofit Garden and we were happy with the results and our relationship. We were confident after our previous experiences, selecting them to update both design and functionality for our NetCommunity site was the right decision.”

Rob Caudill, Director of Graduate Development, Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity

“Would we recommend working with Nonprofit Garden? Hands down YES! In fact, we are planning to use them again to help us move off of NetCommunity to WordPress in the Summer of 2018. Their experience, the talented staff of project managers and designers they work with and the entire experience was great.”

Michael Hetrick, Online Communications Coordinator, East Texas Food Bank

 

“This was essential for me. I went from not having a clue how to do this project to having a clear vision of what we needed to accomplish. It was relaxed and organic.”

Misty Fried – Creative Studio Manager, Woodland Park Zoo

“Nonprofit Garden helped us to thinking and achieve bigger. Ideas that we thought weren’t possible either because of functionality or staff skills were able to be implanted with Nonprofit Garden’s guidance.”

Sarah Burns – Senior Communications Director, Dallas Women’s Foundation

“The Nonprofit Garden team has taken a very scary process and helped us break it down into manageable bites. Each member of the team is talented and easy to work with. I don’t know how we would have implemented RE NXT without their insight and expertise. They are a perfect combination of tech skill and fundraising art.”

Mary Hohensee – VP Development, Avenidas

“Our team benefited greatly from the consultations with Nonprofit Garden. As an independent party, they were able to create a forum for the planning and execution of our new website, focusing on our agreed-upon highest priorities. Their experience with mobile styles, the Raiser’s Edge, and Blackbaud’s NetCommunity platform was top-notch. The on-site training and guidance resulted in a perfect site launch.”

Jason Longo – Communications Specialist & Webmaster, Saint Leo University Advancement

“The level of training provided by Rebecca was exceptional. While I was nervous about working in a new platform (WordPress), the training and support from Nonprofit Garden helped me relax. I’ve been able to handle a lot of things I never thought possible…”

Angela Sosebee – Communications & Marketing Specialist, The Relatives 

“Simply put, Kristen is a rock star! This is the second school where I’ve brought Nonprofit Garden in as a partner – Kristen listened, understood and immediately got to work to help clean and optimize our data. Kristen is a fantastic teacher and has been instrumental in bringing our staff up to speed very quickly. We couldn’t be happier.”

Erin Wright – Director of Advancement, San Francisco Day School

“Nonprofit Garden was awesome. Great training…just wish I’d had it nine months ago!”

Kathryn Arnold – Marketing & Communications Manager, Spirit Rock Meditation Center

“We couldn’t be more pleased with both the process and the results. Collaborating with Nonprofit Garden provided us with the tools to conduct the business of alumni engagement and university giving in a very modern way.”

Denny Moller – Vice President of University Advancement & Communications, Saint Leo University

“Rebecca and the rest of the dedicated team was phenomenal. We received so much training about how to actually manage the work ourselves after implementation. I saw that as an added value.”

Mark Klausen – Marketing Communications Manager, Columbia Bible College

“I just want to thank the Nonprofit Garden team so much for all of your help on this project! You were truly a pleasure to work with!”

Sabrina Dunn – Digital Media Coordinator, Medical College of Georgia Alumni Association

“Thank you so much. We appreciated your diligence, humor and helpfulness throughout the partnership. I’m especially grateful for the encouragement along the way. It was a real pleasure to work with your team on this site redesign. As our needs evolve, I hope that we will have an opportunity to work together again.”

Andra Stevens – Director of Communications and Creative Services, Africa University Development Office

“We knew that we wanted — no, needed — mobile optimization. We couldn’t risk looking behind the times. We needed to be in front of the trends.”

Lisa Notter – Senior Director, Advancement Communications, Events & Stewardship at IIT Alumni Association

“In working with Kristen on our Annual Campaign, we reconnected with our donors in a really specialized and personal way – and hit way above our yearly fundraising goal! Thank you so much. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you, Kristen and Lisa.”

Michael O’Donohue – Vice President, Peninsula Family Services

“These guys met and then exceeded my expectations. The team did a hefty amount of heavy lifting and answered all of our questions along the way. It was like NetCommunity™ was finally unveiled. Now we’re rockin’ and rollin’!”

Phil Zepeda – Vice President for Cause Marketing and Communications, American College of Chest Physicians

“We knew if we made an investment in training more staff, we would reap great rewards in efficiency. Now everyone feels like they have a stake in our success.”

Marianne Crosley – Cleveland Leadership Center

“Pulling this project off was going to be tough, but we had to make it work. Your team helped us figure out what was critical and what was negotiable in terms of NetCommunity™, so we could trim where we needed. That was invaluable.”

Kristine Leja – Senior Director of Development and Communications, Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco

“Our experiences with Lisa and her team has given us confidence to step back from the table and venture off on our own. Their expertise and responsiveness helped ELIC leverage our technology into an ongoing tool for success.”

Steve Schlotter – IT Director, English Language Institute China

“There was so much functionality about which we weren’t even aware! It was so helpful to have Rebecca & the Nonprofit Garden team walk us through best practices — and break our bad habits.”

Beth Kohler – Director of Development, Schoolcraft College Foundation

“Our thanks to all of you for facilitating this major transition. We are doing the DANCE OF JOY down our Motherhouse hallways!”

Margaret McCarthy – Congregational Development Director, Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose

“You pushed us as an organization to rethink the ways we were doing things – from what was on our website, to how to get ready for going mobile, to our internal processes. We wanted to stay relevant and that was exactly what we needed. Because they were Blackbaud® experts without being Blackbaud®, we felt you could be more objective. So glad we found the right fit!”

Ken Kurz – Director Information Services, U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association and Foundation

“I didn’t need to go to a full Blackbaud® training and learn everything there is to know about The Raiser’s Edge®. Your team focused on what was important for our roles, helping us think through the best and most streamlined way to use the database.”

Anne Im – Director of Development, AACI
