Binding Communities together.

Generous acts of philanthropy have always served as a positive uniting force within the local and global community. With the ever-increasing amount of nonprofit organizations, the competition for financial and service resources has become more aggressive than ever. It is important that nonprofit organizations have a strategic development plan that will attract contributions and nurture strong relationships that foster growth.

We couldn't have been more pleased with Lisa M. Dietlin & Associates' (LMDA) work. It is especially notable that Lisa and her staff were not afraid to roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side with us in order to get the job done. LMDA is especially adept at motivating board members and staff. Lisa herself brings a very high level of professionalism and positive energy to everything she does. I would highly recommend Lisa M. Dietlin & Associates to my community college colleagues.

We were very pleased with the performance of Lisa Dietlin and Associates. Lisa and her team provided executive and operational leadership and support to our Educational Foundation during an exceptionally busy six months while we searched for a new Chief Advancement Officer. Through Lisa’s efforts we acquired a new executive leader, raised substantial funds, conducted several large community special events, and obtained a clean audit. A great job! We would not hesitate to recommend her and her company, or call upon her again.

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research hired Lisa Dietlin to update our Strategic Plan and our entire Board of Directors was so pleased with the quality of her work that we ended up retaining her and hiring several of her associates for an additional 6 months!

Lisa has boundless energy and enthusiasm which is contagious. She provided direction and structure to our organization through weekly one on one meetings with the staff and making employees become accountable. Her knowledge of development and fundraising is innate and I personally learned so much from her that she has become my mentor.

Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana first engaged Lisa and her firm to inspire our Board of Directors toward a deeper level of philanthropic commitment as we approached our 100th Anniversary celebration. We built on this foundation with Lisa to accelerate our major gifts program and called upon LMDA for our interim staffing needs. Lisa and her team are an essential driver of our individual giving success!
