“I have known John professionally for about 15 years and hired him as a planned giving consultant for Union Gospel Mission, when I was the Director of Development. John provided excellent advice and service to UGM in every aspect of planned giving. He helped us launch and build our planned giving program from its infancy, teaching and training us along the way. I learned a lot from John. His style is comfortable and engaging and he is a great listener and thinker. John’s knowledge and experience in the area of planned giving, and development in general, would make him an excellent consultant for any organization considering his services.”
