Kristin has played a vital role in enhancing this Organization's grant writing, collaborative relation building and program development efforts. She is conscientious and professional and ensures that every aspect of her service delivery is of excellent quality. She has single-handedly saved us thousands of dollars in grant writing efforts.
Since 1998, Kristin Olson has written more than 300 grant proposals for nonprofit organizations and government entities. Before launching her consulting business in 2006, Kristin worked in the fields of public education and non-profit organization management.
Her proposals have resulted in grants and service contracts totaling more than $35 million awarded to her clients by grantmakers in the public and private sectors.
Grants Galore's pricing is based on a flat hourly rate. There are no contingency fees or commissions. You pay for professional services rendered on a contractual basis. And because of low overhead costs, Kristin is able to offer you quality services for a comparatively low price, which ultimately increases your return on your investment.
Each Grants Galore client is a unique organization with an important mission. From the first time you contact Kristin, she listens to your needs and works with you to set realistic expectations regarding your funding goals. Grants are one component of a comprehensive fundraising strategy for not-for-profits. They are not free money, however, especially as more and more grantmakers expect measurable results. One must carefully research the funders to determine the best fit for your organization. The quality of proposals—not the quantity—is the key to our mutual success.
Grants Galore offers customized services and flexible hours, including evenings and weekends. During the initial consultation, you choose what services you need, either for a specific project or on an on-going basis. Kristin's integrity and attention to detail will free your staff from the time-consuming and cumbersome tasks associated with grant writing. She will do what it takes to complete projects on time and to the funder's specifications, giving you peace of mind that you are submitting the most competitive proposal possible.
