"Wendy conducted research and interviews to shape a GEO publication on collaboration. In addition to being inquisitive and analytical, Wendy brought tremendous empathy to the project from her time working in foundations. She was great at spotting patterns and lifting up concrete examples we should highlight in our publication. Wendy is enthusiastic, accessible and meets her deadlines. She was a pleasure to work with and we will look forward to finding another opportunity to engage her.”

Eli Gelardin

"Wendy helped us more clearly define our vision and goals as we developed and launched our new family foundation. Wendy also designed and facilitated a series of peer-support, capacity building meetings for our inaugural, diverse cohort of women non-profit leaders. The leaders loved working with Wendy; her collaborative, honest, open and fun style helped leaders feel comfortable to share, learn and grow. Wendy helped to make our first year of funding a success!”

CEO

Chief Executive Officer, Village Fund Marin

"Wendy Todd was the first consultant I thought of when I knew we needed help straight-away following the October 2017 Sonoma County wildfires. Wendy jumped in with gusto, expertise, and compassion to help us through a new and critical time at Community Foundation Sonoma County. Wendy was instrumental in planning and facilitating a county-wide leadership, convening soon after the fires, and in developing our grant-making strategy for long-term fire recovery for the Sonoma County Resilience Fund. Wendy’s work will leave a legacy to the foundation for years to come as we implement a bold, thoughtful, and equitable approach to our community’s recovery and rebuild.”
