After gaining over 15 years of experience with a variety of non-profit organizations and over 5 years of experience in full-cycle grant work, Joy M. Maxwell, MPH MSW resigned her full-time (with excellent benefits!) job to found Ark Advising LLC with a vision to bring an innovative approach to strengthening families and supporting communities.
Recognizing most organizations are unable to hire a staff member whose singular focus is grant work, we endeavor to partner with under-resourced organizations that are eager to grow by securing grant funding. Ark Advising specializes in providing the full range of grant services – research, writing and administration – to build our partners’ capacity to attract even more resources to fulfill their respective missions. Understanding that no “one size fits all,” our service offerings are designed to meet most budgets, while being open to building custom plans when requested.
