Testimonials


 

I have worked with countless organizations as a development specialist, coach, and consultant. My experience has afforded me opportunities which have taught me how: to locate resources for a variety of needs through diversified funding stream, devise unique strategies for creating effective fundraising plans, look outside the box to help build working boards, as well as efficiently research and write grant proposals to bring dollars to local communities.  Our ROI with clients ranges between 330% – 1120% and our rate of success with grant proposals is over 90%.  I feel privileged to have the skill set to now offer my services to others. Take a moment to read some feedback from clients.

Jennifer JonesAs a Development professional who has served at the same non-profit for nearly ten years, I recognize the value of fresh perspective, the need to tweak my processes, and the benefits of individual coaching to continue to sharpen myself professionally. We hired Mandy to consult with us on our Development processes and plan. Her coaching helped us narrow our focus, set attainable goals, and develop a fresh strategy. I highly recommend Mandy as a Development Consultant and as a professional Development Coach. She is dependable, organized, a skilled strategic planner, a creative and analytical thinker, and her professional knowledge and experience is invaluable.” – Jennifer Jones, Director of Development, Hickory Christian Academy

Vicki Murray (640x620)“I became the Executive Director of Safe Harbor Rescue Mission in October of 2013 with absolutely no knowledge of grant writing or growing a development department. Mandy, with Funding For Good, Inc., was contracted to research and write grants for Safe Harbor in 2014, giving us a 192 % increase in grant funding over the previous year.
In 2015, I retained Mandy as a Development Coach. With Mandy’s coaching our revenue increased by 48% over 2014 and the knowledge I gained through her bi-weekly coaching was invaluable! I learned to cultivate relationships with Foundation program managers, city leaders, and potential donors. Mandy also helped me create a development plan, clean up our database and determine priorities. Because of the confidence, I gained through Mandy’s coaching; I weaned myself to one session per month in 2016 and our revenue increased another 33%!

I highly recommend Mandy as a teacher and coach. She not only invests her knowledge, but she invests her heart and passion to create a better world..”
