AFC is the nicest team of people I've ever worked with in my 

25-year career.

Janet Butler Berry | Senior Associate

I joined Advisors for Change in 2017 after working more than 20 years in a variety of roles at non-profit organizations. I have an MBA/MA in arts administration from Southern Methodist University and I have always loved bridging the financial/analytical and programmatic worlds within an organization. I work hard every day to ensure that the financial processes and reports are useful to the managers, leadership and the Board members of our partner organizations.


I appreciate that AFC is values-driven; we work best when our values support and strengthen our partners' values. We specialize in building the capacity of small and medium nonprofits; the tools we use and our personal approach to advising are meant to build and enhance, not replace, the organization's own financial department. As a non-profit manager I enjoyed mentoring interns and early-career professionals, and I’m glad that I’m able to do similar work with our partners. It’s rewarding to see individuals grow their own financial skills and take ownership of the work. 


When I'm not working, I love reading, going to cultural and historical sites around DC and watching movies. I still order DVDs from Netflix and my queue has over 450 movies and TV shows.
