Sarah outfitted me with grant programs and grantee operational steps, drafted a grant proposal template, and provided resources to not only connect with, but vet organizations that create social impact.  Whether you are in the pre-launch phase, or an established organization seeking to expand your mission, I'd recommend you hire her immediately."

She provided us with invaluable insight and resources. The amount of service and attention to detail was nothing short of remarkable.

"This country needs more active citizens like Sarah &  her principal and value to community based engagement. I'm thrilled to voice my highest support for her.
