Archer+Rosenthal was established by Clifford Rosenthal in the spring of 2014. It is a home for Cliff’s consulting and publications–and more. Elayne Archer (married to Cliff) is an author in her own right, after her career in editing and teaching at the college level. She has worked in higher education, women’s health, and nonprofit research organizations. Her newest work is Crossing Troubled Waters: Memoirs of an English War Widow.
Dana Archer-Rosenthal, our daughter, is the next generation, carrying on our tradition of serving in the nonprofit sector. She has worked in environmental, grantmaking, and community development organizations. She managed programs for the Robin Hood Foundation and later, the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF), working specifically on its social impact bond “Pay for Success” program. She currently consults and advises nonprofits engaged in workforce development, social enterprise, and more.
Cliff Rosenthal has more than four decades of experience in the nonprofit, cooperative, and public sectors. For more than 30 years, he was CEO of the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (now: Inclusiv), moving on in 2012 to set up the Office of Financial Empowerment of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington. His career has focused on developing practical approaches and effective policies to empower low-income, minority, and other economically vulnerable people.
We are based in Brooklyn, New York — and have been, since long before it became the center of the hipster universe (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
