WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US?

National Grant Professionals – Top 1%

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.

Alex is full of initiative, bright ideas and most importantly, she is a “doer” who gets things done. Any organization that gets an opportunity to work with her should consider themselves fortunate and very lucky. Her knowledge, expertise and RESULTS keeps her in such high demand. I’ve worked with numerous beginners and veteran grant professionals in the Grant Writers Association which has over 14,000 members and Alex is easily among the top 1%.”

Grew our grant funding 400%!

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.

A Five Figure Grant – Alex Dunn

“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.”
