Client Testimonials

“1000 Feathers dove deep into our history, operations, and online presence. They presented their findings in a report and discussion that was touted as “ridiculously impressive” by one of our Board members. They gave us data-based insight into our current impact and provided logical, yet creative, strategic suggestions for building upon strengths. Our growth has fallen into place because of their detailed, data-driven, and creative recommendations.”
— Melisa Holmes, Ph.D., Girlology

Forrest and Cayci supported both the board and the staff to make sure that everything was seamlessly communicated both internally and externally.

“We’ve been at this for 20 years and we knew it was time to take a hard look at our organization and the changing landscape in the early childhood world.

“Our board retreat sharpened our foundation’s priorities and helped us to think critically about the changes we want to see in our community and how we can support them. The facilitated discussion catalyzed us to be more transparent with our grantees, our community, and our funding partners about why we work in racial equity and leadership development. From initial conversations to post-retreat follow-up, Forrest and Cayci were constructive thought partners and collaborators. I value the candid, honest relationship our organization has with 1,000 Feathers. “
— Jen Nixon, Reidsville Area Foundation
“1000 Feathers has provided data-driven feedback and insightful guidance on a strategic direction toward a sustainable future. They have been open to adaptations to the process and yet kept us on track toward our agreed upon outcomes. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with a dynamic strategic partner who is grounded in knowledge and experience in the non-profit sector. Momentum Bike Clubs is stronger for it.”
