“There is simply no way we would’ve grown so well and so effectively without the help of Linda and Wastyn Associates. She consistently gives generously of her time, expertise, and resources whenever we need help with grants, understanding fundraising concepts, board development and/or organizational dynamics – and frequently all of these at once!”
Regina Haddock, Founder and Executive Director, Dress for Success Quad Cities
“Linda is so knowledgeable about all of the available funding sources that she is able to pinpoint which grants are best suited to your specific programming. Her abilities and experience enable her clients’ projects to stand out in the incredibly competitive environment of not-for-profit funding.”
Pamela Crouch, Living Proof Exhibit
“Linda facilitated the strategic planning process wonderfully. Before the retreat, while our Board was blessedly not DYSfunctional, it was fairly NONfunctional, more or less meeting to “rubber stamp” work that staff had done. Today, our Board is active, engaged, and lively, moving forward with vision and purpose.”
Ted Pappas, President/CEO, Friendship Manor
