As a fairly new Board of Directors there was some anxiety about how the Board should go about fundraising.  Jennie came to one of our meetings and really made us see things from a new perspective:  it’s all about relationships and there are many ways to cultivate those relationships.  We appreciated her knowledge, guidance, and insights.  She is a valuable resource for any non-profit. – Cathie Morton, Board Secretary, Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue, Dover Plains, NY

Working with Jennie Stokum on collaborative grant writing projects has been a wonderful and seamless experience. She brings a wealth of experience in multiple disciplines including donor management, technical writing, program evaluation, and fundraising operations. Her grants are effortlessly persuasive and her style is always succinct and clear. Ramapo for Children has had the benefit of Jennie’s expertise and passion for many years and continues to benefit from the fruits of her labor with several foundation partnerships standing the test of time on the back of her exemplary groundwork. Thank you Jennie, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate! — Chris Olver, Associate Executive Director, Development, Strategy & Operations, Ramapo for Children, Rhinebeck, NY

Working with Jennie is a pleasure! Her work ethic and fundraising effectiveness are excellent. She is a great thought partner and provides unique perspective and insight. – Josh Aronson, Founder, Harmony Project Hudson, Hudson, NY
