King Knox and Darryl Gordon
Chairman Emeritus and President, Lancaster County Career & Technology Foundation
“When our Foundation’s only Executive Director of the past 16 years retired, we were referred to Ivy to both lead us through the process of finding a replacement and serve as interim Executive Director to keep foundation happenings afloat. Engaging Ivy was the best thing we could have done. She evaluated over 90 applications, organized them by our expected level of interest, scheduled interviews and was highly organized throughout the process. She brought her knowledge of, and her experience in the not-for-profit world to the table and enabled us to hire the absolute best candidate. While conducting the search, Ivy also took our “tribal knowledge,” none of which was documented, and developed a “Director’s Manual” which organized operating procedures and contact lists for all the foundation matters. Ivy and Helix Strategies directly made our foundation even stronger than we were before the engagement. We would highly recommend her to anyone.”

Orrstown Bank, Executive Vice President
“We started working with Ivy Buchan of Helix Strategies in 2018 and we’ve been extremely impressed with her professionalism, nonprofit expertise, and relationship building. As a community bank, Orrstown cares deeply about investing in organizations that support the communities we serve. We’ve always given back to the community, and we wanted to have a greater impact. By partnering with Helix, we’ve been able to establish new and enhance existing relationships through our Nonprofit Council. We have established a great working relationship with Ivy, and look forward to remaining a strong resource and partner for community-based organizations.”
