I can’t thank you enough for the work and help you provided to me and COPE24 on our recent grant proposal. I have worked with several grant writers in the past but always felt they knew little more than I did. As we worked through the grant application it was very clear to me that you understood the intent of each question and provided the language artfully.
[Joy] demonstrated professionalism in all correspondence and outreach activities, including speaking at board meetings and providing a presence at school-related events; effectively managed our various reporting deadlines; provided for efficient and thorough on-site audits; submitted comprehensive and thought-provoking grant applications; and provided consistent and proactive communications to keep pace with evolving needs and funding requirements.
Joy is creative, resourceful, dedicated, and dependable. We have benefited from her innovative ideas. She worked well in the time frame allotted for each application, and she took the stress out of doing paperwork. We have no doubt Ark Advising/Joy Maxwell would be an asset to your organization, and we give her our highest recommendation.
Joy is the right person to develop high-stakes grants. You can trust her implicitly to build a strong grant submittal for you. Joy will gather documentation and fulfill all of the necessary requirements of all funding bodies to formally seek funding on behalf of your agency. Joy has successfully been rewarded with multiple grants from various foundations and funding organizations which have become primary funding mechanisms for us over time. She has absolutely obtained some of the largest most consistent blocks of funding for our non-profit.
