“We worked with Gary Bernstein and Bernstein Group for our (Sustainability) capital fundraising campaign and to assist our development staff and Board understand the complexities of engaging donors. Gary directed and guided us through every key step of the campaign from: a planning study, to developing marketing/campaign materials, and conducting regular progress meetings to keep us on target to reach our goal. He was extremely professional and well organized throughout, consistently giving guidance and helping us overcome any challenges along the way. I highly recommend him and his firm, as Gary brings a wealth of knowledge and a passion for raising money, as well as a motivating approach for staff and board members to work collaboratively”.

“We realized that our Charter school was at an important crossroads. In order to move to the next level, it was going to require a well-crafted strategic plan. That’s why we turned to Bernstein Group and Associates for help.

We are excited to now implement the plans Gary helped us create.”
