Amy’s services will be invaluable to any nonprofit looking for help with their software. When our organization went to upgrade our aging database, Amy helped at every step along the way. She identified new systems that had the features we needed, guided us in evaluating options and making a final decision, acted as an “owners rep” during the conversion process, and helped us clean and (re)organize 16 years’ worth of data. Amy has proven time and again that she has those rare talents that combine technical skills and computer savvy with a deep understanding of and appreciation for donor relations and organization needs.

I am grateful to have found Amy through the NPC network which afforded us the opportunity to work on our donor software for the past year completing maintenance, discussing needs, and teaching the use of our donor database. Amy has provided the knowledge for future success making me extremely grateful to have had this opportunity. Whether there is a blizzard or it’s a sunny Friday afternoon she will be there! Always putting her clients first with the common goal of success.

In 2019, BIC hired Amy Chin to assist us in selecting a new donor management system and cleaning up our Excel worksheets. She was able to clarify our needs and help us select the best system. I love Little Green Light. It’s so easy to use. Amy Chin’s help in sorting through the confusing array of choices was key. As a result, I have been able to do a much better job raising money for BIC.

I have had the pleasure to work with Amy Chin now since April 2016. Amy came in to help us figure out how we could recreate some very complicated quarterly board reports which had been a major challenge for us over the last three or four years. Amy was able to work with us over a very short period of time on this and helped us to transform the reports in a more efficient and streamlined way than we even thought possible. We are now able to report our numbers to the board in a way that we could not do for quite some time. Amy is a professional of the highest degree and does not only have the technical knowledge to work through very complicated problems, but is also an amazing teacher. She has very patiently worked with us so that we could also understand how to get better use out of our data and our system. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who is considering working with her. We will certainly continue to work with Amy in the future.

Amy Chin was hired to assist in the creation of our annual board reports as well as the way we code our data in Raiser’s Edge. After just a few meetings we nailed down a great system for reporting that makes sense and above all is extremely accurate. Amy has helped us to put full confidence and own our numbers that we present to the board, as well as saving the department valuable work time to be used for other tasks. Over the past few months she has helped me to develop more skills as a database administrator: creating and using macros, If/Then statements in Access and Excel, and much more. Amy has become a pivotal part of the development team here at the Clark and we are very pleased with what she has brought to the table.

Amy has served as tech adviser extraordinaire for IS183 Art School (www.is183.org). She designed and installed a personalized registration/development database, has advised on email and server issues and has always been willing to respond quickly even though we are not one of her larger clients. We are very lucky to have her working with us and helping to create workaround IT solutions for the community art school. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Amy Chin is a teacher extraordinaire who it has been my pleasure to know for twelve years. She is a teacher of computers and software who is not only patient but who reads her students’ capacity and learning style so that the student is motivated and empowered to learn and understand computer programs. She is now running a consulting company and puts her clients at ease through her knowledge and wisdom about her field.
