Already in the first 12 months, we’ve received 3 X in awards what we spent on GDS grant services, but the biggest take-away has been the time it has given me to just be an Executive Director. We have grown so much already, and not just in terms of dollars.

Rachel has been patient in guiding me to find appropriate grants and then doing all the work to create a finished document with my input as the process proceeds. Rachel is prompt, supportive, knowledgeable and I will give her my best recommendation.
