“Liz Stern’s participation on The Haiti Crocs Project, supplying 10,000 pairs of shoes to those in need, was quite moving and a testament to her compassion and courage to alleviate poverty. That project made me think about my legacy and the impact I want to have. Our work together, developing my philanthropic portfolio and helping me realize the impact I will have, has been rewarding.”    

- Ed Claugus (Private Investor, Hedge Fund Manager and Risk Taker)

“We were deeply impressed that Liz took the time to understand our family and our desire to accommodate generational differences. She guided us through thought provoking questions and processes which enabled us to develop a strategic plan for philanthropy based on our resources and perspectives that would ensure a clear family legacy. We look forward to having her continued guidance and support.”

It was extremely useful in helping us think strategically as we expand our fundraising efforts to include a more diverse group of regional and national funders. Liz’s insider knowledge and affable style made the process informative, interactive, and fun!”

“Liz Stern is the ideal philanthropic adviser, she masterfully manages her role in finding the match between her client's values and intentions and the non-profit who will best carry forward those intentions.  My work with Liz as VP for Individual Giving at Accion International resulted in honoring the legacy of her inspiring and unique client while providing the largest estate gift in Accion's 55 year plus history.  Both client and Accion aligned in their deep commitment to financial inclusion and the improvement of lives through entrepreneurship.”
