“From time to time, an organization needs to take a step back and evaluate its position, purpose and goals. During that process, having a trusted friend to give honest and frank feedback is helpful. We found that trusted friend with Rich Gerig and Mike Wiese and their team at Advancement Associates, Inc.”

–Development Director, Friends High School
