Our customers are nonprofits, social enterprises, foundations, government entities, school districts and higher education institutions driven by community and social change. They’re staffed by the type of people about whom Robert Kennedy said: “There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why … I dream of things that never were, and ask ‘Why not?’”
“We love working with JVA. They have helped us revamp our grant writing process and helped us secure additional multi-year grants to expand our services. Our success is directly attributable to the professionalism of their staff and the time that they took to truly understand our services so that they can sell it effectively to our funders.”
