Christ Church Charlotte

There are few organizations who become part of your family forever by means of a fairly simple contract for consultation. It is about the level of care and the earnest effort of their staff to discern the issues, name them gently with grace and space, and then take you through the steps to recognize those truths corporately so that each stakeholder becomes a better part of the whole organization. Especially through their work with nonprofit board governance and training, that is the Lee Institute.
Mary Davis Smart, Senior Warden

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
