Liz’s pulse on the Philadelphia philanthropic community was key in our work together. One of Liz’s key differentiators is her determination to really get to know how an organization works, who the key players are, how the program is built, and to immerse herself in the different elements of the organization to put forth her best writing. - Summer Search Philadelphia
You will get a remarkable, no nonsense, dedicated, hard working, highly skilled, and experienced team. They make you feel like you are their only client, doing all they possibly can to complete the job in the least amount of time…… producing high quality results by doing “the work,” be it research, case study, overtime, or whatever else it takes. Your organization is in good hands with them. They don’t just tell you how to; they do the job. Just what we all need. - Joan Myers Brown, Philadanco!
Liz & Juliette from C3C were amazing to work with...The education and guidance we received was akin to us getting a B.S. in Fundraising...Definitely look for Keep Music Alive be back for our C3C Masters Degrees in the future! - Vincent James, Keep Music Alive
