What our customers say

For nearly 20 years, 501(c)(3)² has been privileged to serve a diverse array of clients. Below are some of the ringing endorsements:

  • Tinsy Labrie, Vice President, Marketing, VisitPITTSBURGH

    VisitPITTSBURGH has always been very pleased with the work provided by 501(c)(3)².  Since we began working with the firm, projects ranging from huge corporate initiatives requiring a complete nationwide benchmarking study to small research programs regarding customer satisfaction have been handled professionally, with a high level of skill and with extremely satisfying results.  The staff at the firm are well-managed, attentive and willing to take on projects at a moment's notice, delivering effective, efficient and affordable solutions to our company's needs.  We think of the firm as a true partner, an extension if you will, of our own marketing, sales and research efforts.

  • Marsha Blanco, President and CEO, ACHIEVA

    From start to finish, the team was constantly available with wise advice, counsel, and encouragement. The wisdom of 501(c)(3)² staff was invaluable. They provided gentle advisement and were not the overpowering counselors that we have experienced in former campaigns. The 501(c)(3)² team can also open doors essential to a campaign. They have established relationships with local foundations and community corporate leaders. They provide a white glove approach rather than that of a hatchet - so important to organizations such as ours. Importantly - ACHIEVA was on an $8M campaign, an amount established by a feasibility study done by a Boston firm. With our local consultant's hard work, we recently over achieved!

  • Julie Marx, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Women Work

    As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization serving Pennsylvania women, I recommend the services of 501(c)(3)² without hesitation.  They are the go-to consultants for the non-profit community in Pittsburgh. Linda Dickerson and her team provide an unrivaled level of expertise for development: grant writing, strategic planning, capital campaigns, fund-raising events, etc.  I am consistently impressed with their ability to deliver high-quality, personalized services for projects of any scale. I give this company the highest rating possible.
