In 1988, after almost 15 years working in sales and marketing for the graphic arts and financial services sectors, Janet Levine fell into nonprofit work and found her passion. Starting as a Director of Development at USC’s (now) Viterbi School of Engineering, Janet spent the next 20 years working in Advancement at a variety of organizations in ever increasing roles of responsibility. While jobs changed, her commitment to stewardship for all aspects of community outreach remained and grew. Just prior to starting Janet Levine Consulting in 2007, Janet was Vice President for University Advancement at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Stewardship has also helped build her consulting practice: of great pride is the number of nonprofits who hire Janet for additional assignments, and the number of leaders she has worked with who hire Janet as they move to other organizations.
Janet’s consulting centers on providing staff and volunteers with the tools needed to build organizational capacity. Whether working to increase your fundraising effectiveness, inspiring your board, staff members, and other volunteers to tap into their talents, or helping nonprofits to thrive via rigorous and realistic strategic planning, Janet’s style of collaboration and education is focused on taking nonprofits from mired to inspired.
