United Way of Central Carolinas

We are extremely grateful to The Lee Institute for sharing their expert knowledge of nonprofit board governance with the United Way’s Young Leaders program. Their recent presentation was armed with realistic and valuable information about board recruiting and operations, and the presentation was delivered with sincerity, expertise and passion. We are lucky to have The Lee Institute as a partner; they truly care about the community and strive to make a difference in every interaction they are a part of, from one-on-one meetings to large group presentations.
Sarah Degnan, Volunteer Engagement Manager

University of North Carolina Charlotte

The Lee Institute helped open the dialogue among faculty from different academic programs to find commonality and start building bridges to ensure success for our students.

Strategic Planning

Mint Museum Auxiliary

The Lee Institute has brought a professional and objective approach to the Mint Museum Auxiliary’s Strategic Planning Process, capturing the diverse ideas of our volunteers and distilling them down into a streamlined document with clear goals, objectives and action items for us to focus on for the next three years. The Lee Institute did in less than one year what would have taken our organization 3-5 years to do.
Lori Mountcastle, Board Chair
