Warm Wishes

MarinLink has been a major blessing not just to my project, but to so many other wonderful community based organizations and projects under their larger non-profit 501c (3) Fiscal Umbrella. Without MarinLink, I truly don’t know how I would have been able to get my project underway. They have been supportive and helpful at every turn. They are like my personal cheer-leading team encouraging me every step of the way. They have also been wonderfully instrumental in educating me about the various ins and outs of establishing and running a successful non-profit through their MarinLink University program. What can I say…if you have a passion and a dream to contribute to your community in a purposeful and meaningful way, MarinLink is there to help!

Leslie Lakes, “Prison Arts Touching Hearts” P.A.T.H.

I have found MarinLink to be a valuable resource in the early days of establishing our project!

Roger Sramek, “Think out of the Cup”

MarinLink has been a ready resource for our learning and our project!

Roger Sramek, “Think out of the Cup”

MarinLink is an outstanding community organization that offers wonderful leadership to small non-profit organizations like ours, Kids Cooking for Life. They are always just a phone call away when a problem comes up.

Marco Cacchi, “Kids Cooking for Life”

MarinLink supports non-profits with workshops to educate us in all the aspects of running a non-profit, from legal entities to insurance, to mission/vision statements. The information is practical and very useful, although most nonprofits may be run by dreamers–this is common sense stuff we need to know!

Ann Moreno, “Reset GO”

MarinLink’s support, education, networking, and connections have helped us to get to where we are today. MarinLink University gave us great information and the opportunity to network with other nonprofits and the folks who support them.

Ann Moreno, “Reset GO”

The support of the staff and volunteers at MarinLink has helped us to move forward toward our dream, rather than becoming derailed when faced with areas of our own lack of expertise. MarinLink excels at helping nonprofits succeed.

Ann Moreno, “Reset GO”

Marin Link has been more than helpful in providing important services that we could otherwise not have access to as a start up nonprofit organization.

Jennifer Clark, “Pacifics Baseball Clinics”

Marin Link has made it possible for our project to go forward as a non-profit entity. They have supported and encouraged us to dream big.

David Peters, “Passion Voice”

MarinLink makes it possible for Newswire21 to help the community. We’re very grateful for their assistance and guidance.

Tom Murphy, “NewsWire21”

MarinLink has made it possible for Newswire21 and San Francisco Bay Area Jouranlists put on low-cost and free programs that help set the stage for a resurgence in community journalism.

Tom Murphy, “NewsWire21”

We are so grateful to partner with you so that we can focus on our educational mission.

Vicki Whiting, “Kid Scoop News”

As a new project, having the support of MarinLink is essential so that we can focus our efforts on the programming and fundraising. – Vicki Whiting “Kid Scoop News”

As a newly started not for profit educational project, we are completely reliant on the support and structures offered by MarinLink. It would be too much for us to do on our own. Thank you so much for you patience and excellent advice.

Vicki Whiting, “Kid Scoop News”

We are so grateful for the opportunity Marinlink has provided to help:” Love Wild Horses” rock and roll here in Marin!

Jennifer Tara, “Love Wild Horses”

Marin Link has enabled our organization to meet our goals and develop legitimacy. This is especially important during the start of a non-profit and with out which, we would not have been able to fulfill our mission to protect watersheds.

Laura Chariton, “Watershed Alliance of Marin”

I appreciate the opportunity that Marin Link provides to the community and myself to help launch the Tree Monkey Project, It is a great resource and I recommend it to anyone thinking of starting their own nonprofit.

James Reed, “Tree Monkey Project”

The support of MarinLink has been invaluable in my efforts even though my fundraising has become stalled. The support both personal and professional from MarinLink has created a solid, credible basis for the California Film Project to pursue its goals of independent, environmental education. I am very grateful and proud to be part of the MarinLink community.

Christopher Beaver, “California Film Project”

MarinLink has been most helpful in providing information and essential connections for our start-up non-profit.

Kim Mac Lean, “Project HOPE”

As our fiscal sponsor Marinlink has been most helpful in getting us off the ground.

Kim MacLean, “Project HOPE”

Without the support of MarinLink, the Trauma Assessment Project, which serves a very vulnerable population could not survive.

Elizabeth Stinson, “Trauma Assessment Project”

Without MarinLink we would not have a productive, well advised program to help address the number of depressed and suicidal survivors of military sexual trauma which we continue to serve.

Elizabeth Stinson, “Trauma Assessment Project”

MarinLink is vital to our community. To have this organization behind our project is like a vote of confidence at the same time it is a helping hand. I felt like a giant load of responsibility was lightened when MarinLink told us they believed in our work and would support the Women’s PowerStrategy™ Conference.

Jane Hunter, “Women’s PowerStrategy Conference”

Marin Link has been an invaluable asset to the success of my Non-Profit. They handle all of my accounting needs and let me and my team focus on what matters.

Susan Weber Pomillia, “Cruisin with Susan”

We are incredibly grateful for Marin Link’s support. For a small organization like ours, having your support makes a huge difference for us. We are growing Miracle Girls with ease and supporting more girls to know they belong and that they matter, to build meaningful friendships, and to be their wonderful authentic selves.

Brinkley Hutchings, “Miracle Girls”

MarinLink has helped us to become a non-profit easily and simply so that we can focus on our mission. Thank you.

Mia Andler, “Vilda Foundation”

MarinLink has been a boon to our infant organization, providing access to help, guidance, and invaluable information. We are well on our way to some great work for our community with many thanks to MarinLInk!

Peter Parish, “Chaos FFX”

MarinLink is the key incubator for nonprofits in Marin. We feel very fortunate to have launched Earth Day Marin with MarinLink in 2009 and to have worked with MarinLink’s support on each of the 4 Earth Day Marin Festivals we have produced. As our fiscal sponsor they have made managing our nonprofit administration and finance easy; for small organizations that is a life saver. Nancy and Mary are always available to brainstorm, network and provide feedback. The work they have donbe to grow their roster of exciting projects and foster their growth is a major asset to the Marin community.

Hannah Doress, “Earth Day Marin”
