Jeffrey conducted extensive research in understanding our not for profit. As a result, he built a detailed and compelling business plan for us. He leveraged the plan to begin seeking out foundations aligned with our mission. Jeffrey identified significant opportunities, and prioritized these. He then began sending Letters of Interest and applying for various grants. Throughout the process, Jeffrey has been very hard working, responsive and outstanding in his professionalism. Although we have not yet received a grant yet because it’s too late in the process to know, I am confident that we have the best chance to receive funds in his good hands. Previous to acquiring Jeffrey as a consultant, we had sought out other grant writers. There is no comparison in the level of expertise among Jeffrey and these other grant writers. They never took the time to understand our business aside from answered questions. As a result, we received information on grants that were simply not aligned with our sanctuary. They also never mentioned the importance of a business plan which is a powerful tool to guide the direction of the sanctuary and convince grant makers to donate to us. I’m now asking Jeffrey to hand off the work to me he’s done on grants and to guide me as needed. I will be leveraging Jeffrey’s expertise now on how to approach corporate sponsors to find more funding opportunities for our capital expenses. If you think your grantwriter is not aligned with your mission. Stop. Seek out Jeffrey for help. He will do his very best to fight for you.
