Our Clients

Terrie, please know how much I appreciate your participation in our governance process. I think we are on our way to setting clearer and higher expectations for board members and we would not have made this progress without your knowledge and guidance on these issues.

Michael Gosman

Executive Director, ACTS Housing

Working with Core Strategies’ Terrie Temkin and Gail Meltzer to identify and recruit a major gifts officer was a pleasure. They are well-organized and well-connected within the community. Before searching for candidates, Terrie and Gail took the time to understand the needs of the Library Foundation. They also offered helpful advice on interview strategies. I was confident with the process and thrilled with the ultimate result – the hiring of a talented, passionate fundraiser.

Dorothy Klein

Executive Director, Broward Public Library Foundation

There are no words to describe how much I truly appreciate both of your professionalism and genuine kindness throughout this most recent career placement process. You have both demonstrated exactly why you have the remarkable reputation you have in our industry.
