Resource Development Team

JVA’s Resource Development Team consists of expert grantwriters, social enterprise professionals, facilitators and researchers who collectively have decades of experience helping changemakers to access funding. Our grantwriters alone have secured more than a billion dollars in grants for our clients since JVA’s 1987 inception. But our team also includes social entrepreneurs with direct experience starting and managing successful earned-income ventures, as well as researchers who are experts in employing evaluation tools such as donor surveys to inform your resource development strategy. Rounding out our team, JVA’s facilitators have the knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to teach your board and staff to fundraise effectively. 

We hope you’ll see how this team effort makes us a great partner to help you determine and implement best-fit funding solutions for your organization!
