“It was absolutely great working with HIGOL.  Teri and her team  helped me connect the vision to the specific nuts and bolts of how to achieve it – fundraising, management and staff structure, board development – so that the vision isn’t just a concept. She challenged me to lead in a way that took me out of my comfort zone, and helped me grow. By the end of the year, many donors were substantially increasing their support. We are poised to have a banner year in revenue generation, land conservation and community engagement.”

– Reid Wilson, Former Executive Director Conservation Trust for North Carolina
