Jerry Panas

What They Say

“When Idaho State University engaged in its first-ever capital campaign, Jerold Panas, Linzy and Partners came to the rescue. What an outstanding team of professionals. We were new at the business and needed help – a lot of help. Jerry was and is unparalleled in his ability to build organizations and point them to success. He will forever be remembered for being the one who had a tremendous impact on the success at this institution.”

- Dr. Kent Tingey
VP for Advancement
Idaho State University



Jerold Panas heads one of the premiere fundraising firms in the nation (Jerold Panas, Linzy & Partners). As such, he manages a world-wide enterprise (mostly in the United States) of sixty professionals.

In addition to giving oversight to the firm (Jerold Panas, Linzy & Partners) and its work, Jerry provides consulting services to dozens of institutions.  His client base is as varied as the University of Oxford (UK) to Thomas Aquinas College, an institution of 400 students.

It’s an impressive list of clients he consults with. The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North & South America, The Tampa Center for the Performing Arts (the second largest in the nation after the Kennedy Center), and the American Red Cross. The list goes on and on.

Jerry is co-founder of the Institute for Charitable Giving. The Institute offers 10 Seminars in cities across the country. Jerry covenes each session and lectures at all.

He conducts Board Retreats, one or two a month. And he loves, as he says— to scribble. He is one of the best known authors in the field.

He is a platform personality of some considerable note. His presentations are consistently rated at the highest level. There are always three or four speeches each month.

His speeches and Board Retreats can be arranged by calling his office (312-222-1212). Cathy Pizana arranges his schedule.
