Because healthy communities need strong and vibrant nonprofits
I contacted Julie to work with us at The Rock in Bozeman from a personal recommendation of another nonprofit leader. Julie brought an incredible wealth of knowledge about how to approach and build relationships with funders of all kinds, both in grant-writing and in personal donor development. Julie provided not only the knowledge and support, but the enthusiasm and passion that we needed to do the work ahead of us. I absolutely credit her with the fact that we have a fully funded budget for this school year!
When we contacted her, we were in a difficult situation. Without her, I'm sure we would have closed our doors. Now, we're not only fully-funded for the coming year, but we have new Board members and new staff, and we're heading into our next ten years with the kind of passion that I was afraid we'd never see again. I thank God for her, and her partnership with us. Thank you so much, Julie!

"Our facilitator demonstrated deep knowledge and very practical experience in the non-profit sector -her excellent facilitation and question asking skills kept our group on task but still gave us 'great latitude' for important discussions...This made the results much more 'real world'' for us, and ultimately better for our organization and its health".
