“We benefited most from Zis’ ability to think globally and strategically to create and steer the processes that formed and maintained a strong and lasting vision along with the strategies to bring it to fruition. He led up all the start-up processes, including developing a board, a strong cadre of volunteers, and guided our fundraising from $5,000 to $419,000 during his tenure.” – Javier Mondragon, CEO and Founder, Bridge of Grace Compassionate Ministries Center
“You have to look at results if you are going to judge the work of a consultant… We would certainly recommend Zis to help an organization through the process of strategic Planning. His work was well thought out, and made good sense. We couldn’t have accomplished such a thorough, inclusive plan without him.” –Aging and In-Home Services, Inc.
“I worked closely with Zis over a nine-month period as he led us though a very beneficial visioning process. I can honestly say that I am better prepared to lead now than I was one year ago, as a result.” –Grace Point Church of the Nazarene
“I have had the pleasure of working with Zis Milentis, Development, for several months on a project. Zis has an unlimited amount of passion, dedication, and enthusiasm when working on a project. He was able to open our minds to greater possibilities for our organization.” -Junior Achievement of Northeast Indiana
“Zis began his assistance with direction and a vision that gave us encouragement and great hope that we were capable of raising $350,000 in a capital campaign for our center. It is exciting to know that we have now raised nearly $650,000. A greater success is to realize the building is completely paid for with a $60,000 reserve.” -Humane Society of Whitley County, Inc.
“Mr. Milentis is guiding us through the process of an organizational audit. He is extremely conscientious and professional in his approach. Zis seeks to understand, not only the mission of the organization, but the background, goals and relationships involved in order to help guide us forward toward our goals. His holistic approach is appreciated.” -Vera Bradley Foundation
“Zis went beyond our expectations with other valuable fund-raising advice. He provided several suggestions for areas of improvement, included revamping our annual schedule of fundraising activities. Other strategies increase the effectiveness of our volunteer program resulting in greater volunteer involvement in fundraising. Our fundraising goals was nearly 20% greater than last year. Zis helped us reach 97% of the goal while many area nonprofits suffered losses due toa weak and sluggish economy.” -SCAN (Stop Child Abuse and Neglect)
