Your Success is a Decision Away


Real People - Real Results

“Hello Sandra! How are you? I am happy to report I got my first grant! I worked hard on my LOI (letter of intent) and worked hard on meeting and responding to every requirement! Thank you for your advice about sticking to what I do - domestic violence - that helped tremendously! I am proud of myself because I didn’t give up - I kept trying and writing until I got it right! I thank God for giving me the words and wisdom to write a grant! Another accomplishment I can check off!”

I strongly recommend Sandra’s expertise and guidance for anyone looking to build & navigate
the nonprofit sector of business. She is very organized, detailed, and knowledgeable, and has
plenty of resources in her possession to share with clients. Sandra was great at communicating
exactly what was needed and asked all of the right questions.

Most importantly, I could feel her 
passion through her work, and quickly developed a sense that she
believed in my mission and 
wanted to help. Her service is relational rather than transactional, and this consequently assured me as a client that she had my best interest in mind. Our goal was to obtain
501c3 status with an 
initial application without any modifications or resubmissions, and we
accomplished just that!

Hello Sandra,
I am still reeling and pumped after taking your Nonprofit Master class.  Firstly I want to say thank you for ‘making it plain’. You served up the lessons in a way that made me understand that my efforts have not been in vain... they just need to be better organized and infused with more of the information and encouragement that you, absolutely can and did provide. 

I look so forward to learning from you, so that the
women whose lives I touch (gointhrough Domestic Violence) will benefit from my having taken the time to ‘be better prepared to help them to help themselves.

God’s continued blessings, my Sista.  Pease Jah,

I’m so glad I was in the room for this. In my hunger for becoming knowledgeable on running my non-profit, I have attended in the past other nonprofit workshops, even those sponsored by the Maryland National Nonprofit Association, but I always left with more unanswered questions.

This workshop 
blessed my life. It was very enlightening, extremely educational, informative, and let me not forget EMPOWERING. The experience alone was priceless. As someone else state, you have to be present because transformation happens when you are in the room.
Kudos Sandra
