Connect Our Future

The Lee Institute helped us craft a public engagement framework that was flexible and met our goals. Through a suite of public engagement tools, we were able to meet our public engagement targets and build our own staff capacity.

Our hopes were exceeded. There is magic in their process as somehow they transform very hard work into a pleasure and an opportunity.

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
