“Sarah has been tremendously helpful to our group (New Music Detroit) with research, writing, and proofing of several successful grants. She is diligent and approachable which has allowed us to focus on other aspects of running our organization. We will continue to use Sarah’s services with the utmost confidence in her ability.”

— Erik Rönmark, New Music Detroit (Detroit, MI)


“Sarah was willing to work on a tight deadline–one week to complete our grant proposal from start to finish. Her questions were always focused on creating the best content and she readily accepted changes and additions throughout the process. Sarah is highly personable and able to navigate to a successful finish, working around and with our busy schedules. Most of all, she is easy and enjoyable to work with!”

— Donald Long, Atlantic Research Partners  (Chicago, IL)


“Sarah is among the very finest grant writers I have ever worked with. She is extraordinarily detailed and punctual in delivering work products with little direction. Sarah manages the entire process from prospecting, to drafting conceptual narratives to final reports – she is a one-stop service provider. I particularly appreciated how she kept me on task when I was overwhelmed with other projects. I knew that Sarah was always going to get the job done and the fact that she is by nature a very positive, forward-thinking individual was a welcomed bonus.”

— Ann Begin Serra, University of Michigan-Dearborn (Dearborn, MI)


“It has been a joy to have Sarah as part of the Baroque Band team. She has worked on several projects for us and has helped the organization grow in many ways. She is always prepared to go that little bit further and her skills in grant writing and fundraising are fantastic. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough.”

— Garry Clarke, Baroque Band (Chicago, IL)


“Sarah was a delight to work with. We had a big grant, beyond our scope to write and Sarah worked with me with patience and a complete grasp of the process. She knew the questions to ask and where to find ‘evidenced based’ research to support our request for funding. She is both a great listener and very affirming for those of us in the nonprofit sector who need an extra boast these days.”

— Cruger Johnson Phillips, HopeWorks (West Hartford, CT)


“Sarah assisted our organization in developing a campaign case statement, and in carrying out an associated feasibility study. She successfully interviewed a wide variety of agency stakeholders, and produced an insightful and meaningful analysis that is positively impacting the way we do business. I would certainly work with Sarah again, and recommend her for assistance around resource development without hesitation.”

— Ryan Hertz, South Oakland Shelter (Lathrup, MI)


“When Sarah creates a grant proposal for us, we get funded more often than not. She does her homework and is incredibly thorough. She manages her time – and my budget well. She is smart and honest and we are lucky to have her on the team.”

— Melissa Mengden Bunker, Rackham Symphony Choir (Detroit, MI)
