Testimonials | Start Nonprofit
"I have known Mr. Levy for 25 years.
I find him to be of high moral character, and his priorities are always equally as high. I wholeheartedly recommend him to any organization that might benefit from his services. We would not hesitate to hire Mr. Levy again if Child-Rite Inc. ever needed his help at any time." "Jim Levy is organized and insightful, backed by years of hands-on experience. He was a key component of the founding of the Taos Jewish Center, of which I was a board member. Besides being professional and "the smartest person in the room" insofar as his knowledge of how non-profits work, he readily catches on to the heart and spirit of the endeavor. I believe he also has a gift for raising points that perhaps no one else will think of. In short, he is an enthusiastic leader, tempered by being very practical. All this and sense of humor as well." Jim is both highly skilled and genuinely passionate about his work. He brings a level of commitment and integrity that is hard to find." "It has been a joy to work with Jim. Jim listened carefully to our discussions and requirements, and then he created a structure and documents that met our unique needs." "If you are looking for someone to help your organization move forward, you will not do better than to discuss your needs with Jim. Jim Levy Jim@start-nonprofit.com (575) 776-5763
