I worked with Alex previously at Lena Pope and have now contracted with her at Paluxy River CAC. Alex has a real heart for our work and has a great understanding of counseling and support for kids surviving abuse. When I worked with Alex at Lena Pope, she grew our grant funding 400% which helped me grow our counseling program. At Paluxy River CAC, I have been working with Alex for seven months. We have had a positive ROI in six months, and we got in the door with grants from two major funders. What was even better, the funds can be used to sustain our operations and overhead. It has been very helpful to have someone submitting letters of interest, researching and writing foundation grants. Overall, Alex has secured $46 million in grant funding & grew our grant funding 400%. She has invented and honed three systems that increase grant funding for organizations. I know from my experience with her at two different organizations that her systems can work.
“Alex is an exceptional grant writer. She has had extensive experience in writing all kinds of government and private grant applications with great success. She has worked in both the public sector and in the private non-profit environment.”
“I've known Alex for years and had the privilege of working with her in the healthcare philanthropy area of fundraising. I was very impressed with her grant writing and attention to detail on her proposals. We partnered on a project which included a meeting with a local family foundation and a tour. After a positive interaction, the funder requested a letter outlining the program and the current needs and we soon received a wonderful five figure gift. Alex's expertise extends to state and federal grants with a solid track record of success.”
“Alex was passionate about our cause; had a good understanding of program issues; she brought structure to seeking grants and increased funding that allowed my program to continue to grow! I would love to work with her again!”
“Alex is a tremendous grant writer. She repeatedly took our concepts and program ideas & framed them in ways that funders could both understand and support our efforts financially. An outstanding team player, can take a lead role in the development of grant effort without marginalizing other team members. Additionally, Alex has a remarkable ability to own the grant writing process. She can meet the deadlines, and create a fundable proposal. At the same time, she is walking alongside the operational team as a leader among equals.”
"It is without hesitation that I recommend Alex. Therefore, we worked on many grants together and I always appreciated and depended on her expertise and energy. Alex is engaging, ambitious and a leader in the grant writing community. She has a broad skill, writing grants in both the public and private sector. Excellent!"
"We were able to grow our program because of a grant that Alex Dunn won for us. Alex wrote a grant for Catholic Charities that was essential to us providing financial education, rent, and utility assistance to our community. She used data to demonstrate need and helped us to successfully get our new initiative off the ground. Her work helped us grow our program and serve more people."
“Alex Dunn is an outstanding grant professional and her track record proves it. I’ve known her since 2015 where I first met her at one of my Advanced Grant Writing Trainings in Fort Worth, TX. She stood out as one of the top participants among her peers. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with her on several projects and grant initiatives. She is one of the most effective and efficient grant professionals that I’ve ever worked with."
"I recommend Alex because of her skill and expertise in grant writing, management and outcomes reporting."
