What I enjoy most when working with a partner
I enjoy and appreciate the unique mission, the nuanced challenges, and the opportunities presented by each partner organization. I greatly value getting to know a partner and their benefactors and working alongside them to reach entirely new levels of impact through philanthropic investment. The depth and agility of the Carter team are truly extraordinary. The most exciting moment is when a partner feels understood, confident and empowered by Carter’s high quality of work and exceptional expertise.
