Client Testimonials



Alice is an outstanding consultant who brings her deep understanding of the arts, education, and the non-profit world to her work.  Foundation grants grew a whopping 165% over two years after we hired her!  Furthermore, through her work over the past three years,  Pros Arts Studio has dramatically increased its organizational capacity to better manage and develop its growing programs. Having worked with many outside consultants in our 30 years as a non-profit, arts organization, our relationship with Alice has been the most successful.  Three years later, we now have an authentic, working 3 year strategic plan and a taskforce to keep us on track; our grassroots board embarked on a successful individual gifts initiative and increased their level of participation; and our program management and assessment has improved greatly. Alice George provided services well-beyond her contract and connected us to other experts and resources outside her expertise. Her approach is accessible – she facilitates with ease diverse groups, leading sessions that are productive, and with materials that are professional, meaningful, and straightforward. She is able to get even the most reluctant staff and board members to participate.

Jean Parisi, Executive Director, Pros Arts Studio

Alice has provided consulting services to our organization for five years, providing invaluable writing and consulting on a variety of fund raising and communication fronts. Her ability to articulate complex programs in a persuasive and engaging manner has been extremely helpful. She contributed to a major swell in our grants revenue, which rose 42% over three years (FY05-FY08). Furthermore, her decades of experience in nonprofit management allow her to be an active partner in our work.

Karl Androes, Executive Director, Reading In Motion

Working with Alice was like having a partner-in-crime. More than just a grant-writer; she becomes a true advocate and active seeker of support for anyone she works with.

Julie Simpson, former Executive Director, Office of Community Arts Partnerships, Columbia College

Alice consistently delivers thoughtful, compelling cases for support. Because she is a good listener and articulate, Alice's grants reflect what is unique about the organization. She is resourceful in seeking out new funding opportunities.
