Just tell them thanks and you really appreciate the help.

I don't think you need to give them a gift or anything, but a thank you note would be appreciated. And, then continue to knock things out of the park - show them they made a good choice investing their time in you. And consider volunteering for an initiative that they're leading. I once had a mentor who was a really active volunteer for a nonprofit organization. It was personal to her because of her family situation so when I found out she was leading a big fundraising event for the organization, I volunteered to help. It further strengthened our relationship and I got to learn more about a cool nonprofit.

I moved from public to industry recently, and I’ve always had great staff that wanted to do well and have never experienced working with someone who just doesn’t want to do the job.
