"Dr. Nathan is an expert in his field and is able to provide valuable knowledge that would otherwise take hours to find. He is very generous in sharing his experience in order to help other organizations succeed. Philanthropic endeavors can be somewhat overwhelming but he helps you weed through the many opportunities to help find what makes the most sense for your particular situation. I look forward to working with him more in the future!"

Consider Shana Ritter's experience with Driven Strategic's Professional Coaching Services as Executive Director of the Foundation for Autism Resources:
"Nathan turned my head around - and I mean that in the most positive of ways. Foundation for Autism Resources is a new nonprofit and I am a new executive director. I came to the field with a lot of experience in programming, outreach, research, and teaching, but little in fund development. In the months I’ve worked with Nathan my understanding of fundraising has exploded. The result: I am developing an infrastructure based on solid research and approaches that make sense to me and I have been able to explain the strategies to my board. From feeling like I was running in multiple directions to get needed funding, I now feel like I am consciously laying a foundation for the future of my foundation. I highly recommend working with Dr. Schaumleffel he has all the theory and research at his fingertips, but more he has an understanding of the real needs of a small foundation and infuses vision with practice at every step."
Shondra Barrett, CNP, Executive Director of the Clay County (Indiana) Chamber of Commerce added:
"Some people live their entire life hoping they will make a difference or make an impact in their community and world. Dr. Nathan Schaumleffel has not only made an impact in his community but also in the lives of many students and others that will go on to help their communities. Abraham Lincoln once said 'I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.' Dr. Schaumleffel has made an impact in my life and many others. He is passionate to get to know you and your vision to ensure his guidance is the best path for you."
