Janine and her staff sincerely care about working hard in order to achieve success for us in grantwriting. They understand how nonprofits work and the importance of obtaining grant funding. But they also understand the world of grantors—whether they are private, national or government entities. They know how to vet opportunities and ensure we are a good ‘fit’ with the particular focus areas of a grant, and then to provide a candid opinion in regard to a probability of being awarded. This is vitally important as we have long believed that in order to achieve sustainability for our organization, we do not chase the money. We want to sustain our programs and the work we do to fulfill our mission. So finding the right fit is essential and allows us to support our work continuously.
Please accept my heartfelt THANKS for your work and thoughtful contributions, both personally and professionally, to the completion of this application. What a wonderful and professional piece of work! We were all stretched by this project, its very tight time lines and the need for collaboration. This teamwork will be a lasting memory for me. As our nation and the entire world struggles to find solutions to human kindness and respect for all peoples, may this project actually come to fruition and be blessed as an example of how people can truly help other people! Again, many thanks to you and the JVA team.
Working with JVA has been incredibly beneficial to our institution not only fiscally but also because we have powerful story-telling material that we can use again. The team was professional, fast, asked critically astute questions, and brought us across the finish line for a few very complicated and important grants.
I’ve also read through the entire grant application narrative and it looks wonderful. You have done a stellar job in bringing this entire project to a strong closure. Thank you so much for your insight and ability to do so.
JVA has been instrumental in helping not only focus our energy into areas that are a good match for our services but has helped us think expansively into areas that the community needs. We’re excited about the prospects of serving our community even better because of their help.
I consider JVA a key partner in the success of my organization.
I appreciate the diligence and time you spent with us learning more about our vision and mission. The strategic focus is starting to root with the staff, and I feel confident that our grant submissions will have great legitimacy and credibility as a result. You have clearly captured who we are, what we do, and why in a very concise and articulate way. Thank you!
Working with JVA is one of the best consulting relationships I’ve had. The staff is extremely flexible to meet our needs, and executes work of the highest caliber.
