"Anne's intellectual curiosity is combined with a willingness for hard work and a gift for productive collaboration. Anne makes it her mission to truly understand the projects she is writing about, and thanks in part to her passion for getting proposals right, we raised far more than anyone had raised at our organization in over a decade. The truth is I rarely meet someone who has 'the whole package' the way that Anne does. I hope to work with her again someday. In the meantime, I hope other institutions will have the opportunity to benefit from her many strengths.

"Anne was integral to the success of the Tisch School of the Arts' Development Office and helped us to achieve record fundraising revenue year after year. She is a natural development professional and grant writer, who uses her intelligence, talent for writing, strong work ethic, and attention to detail to add significant value to every project she touches. I would recommend her without reservation."
- Andrew I. Uriarte, Executive Director for External Affairs, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
"Anne deftly managed a development office consisting of three far-flung fundraisers in three different countries. She created a five-year strategic plan and implemented procedures to help us to become a more efficient and effective team. With the help of her experienced leadership, we surpassed our fundraising goals, and we raised board giving to record levels. On a personal note, Anne is a pleasure to work with; she is a team-player who is never shy to take on complex challenges and is always willing to help each member of the team be the best he/she can be."
- Tara M. Stone Medina, Development Officer, Americas Region, Central European University
"It is not an easy thing to listen to people trying to describe a project and then translate what one hears into a proposal. Anne Palermo has the rare ability to listen to (sometimes rambling) ideas put forth by others and translate those musings into clear, well-written prose. She is an excellent planner and time manager, and has a well of patience.
- Betty Farbman, Associate Director, Office of Sponsored Programs, New York University
